while I don't always enjoy getting bitten at least I know he will bite you in the face instead of waiting for you to turn your back and bite you in the backside. I have enough 'friends' who are back biters and talk smack behind my back . . . people you would not expect. Maybe we need more politicians like Red instead of Weiner so at least we have some level of honestly and you know what you are getting.Red's vision is bit blurred sometimes, so he bites on anything that moves!:haha: He is really funny with what he does, props for that!
will do.Um, I'd ask you to not discuss Red Raider and his posting habits in this thread please. While RR is very knowledgeable in the world of watercooling, he forgot that our board has a different code of conduct than his which the admins expect us to enforce. While I understand his enthusiasm, HWC doesn't permit direct attacks on other members.
Please feel free to continue discussion of EK's RMA procedure and policy though. I'd like to hear updates as people get information back.
Remember that the plating issue has been confirmed to happen with Feser One coolant as well. Personally I am going to continue using silver as well as PT Nuke in my loops. I will just no longer purchase EK blocks. Although I rarely bought them anyway due to their poor mounting.Can I just chime in with my "I told you so..." Called it, despite everyone thinking "yeah right man, PTNuke and Silver coil? You use anti-corrosive???"
.... wait for it.... told you!
Thought I'd throw in a snap of a block of mine that's been under Feser One for a few months. I guess you can never completely rule out manufacturing defects with any brand quite honestly; but I HIGHLY doubt EK would lie straight out about test results to the point of fudging association with the company that oversaw the testing and messing with data/images or something crazy like that, that I see others going on about. The results PDF is quite a good and interesting read actually. Highly recommend reading through for any watercooling hobbyist as there is information on why it's wise to run anti-corrosive 'just in case'. Specifically, the results mention other products and processed used in creating the blocks, as well as your radiators that may contribute to corrosion in cases without corrosion inhibiting coolant additives.
while i could request an rma from you daz for a nickel gtx580 block,plus a classified chipset block from elsewhere in the usa,i have already got the ball rolling to change the blocks out.Nothing new to report at the moment. Seems nobody pulled the trigger with RMA since the announcement.
