    Well it is 6:00PM & we are almost done ...

    Had to do some mods to fit the Southbridge block
    - so the Xfi card would fit in
    - I will post all pics

    I am using 2 TT P500 pumps (for now) if they don't suffice I will ask & then get the 2 pumps
    that you dudes recommend

    EDIT:

    9:15PM & it's hooked up & running on an auxilary External PSU - no leaks so far in either loop
    Will leave it run all night & finish the rest of the hook up tomorrow.

    Thermaltake P500 pumps huh? Interesting choice.

    I, myself, have used that pump before and it worked fine. The only thing I didn't like aboot them is the SLIGHT noise they exhibited during use. Other than that. they worked fine. Could be a bit stronger too though, didn't seem like their rated speeds were being met...

    !!!!!!! CATASTROPHE !!!!!!!

    BAD NEWS - of the worst kind

    No video output - at all - can't even get the (post) bios screen:mad:

    Tried pulling the cards, one at a time testing, ya da ya da yada - NADA

    Tried all 4 DVI different outs on the cards NADA

    Even ran the xtra fans & water pumps on an auxilary PSU

    Nothing - NADA :confused:

    We were VERY careful with assembly & the screws on the MB

    & especially with the screws on the GPUs that need extra shims

    Reset RAM several times - nothing

    The CPU has a fan hooked to the MB on the place that it needs to sense that the CPU has a fan

    We reset all the power connectors several times also

    Even did all the above with the XFi card out

    It is now in the shop -my buddy will do all the trouble shooting this week

    - I hope it is something silly/stupid :$


    BTW Glad I put shutoff valves (8 in all) on all the ins & outs
    - so we split the system - took only 2 minutes - no loss of fuid & system stays charged
    - so it could be easily dissasembled to be able to go into the shop.

    I even had the PM written but didn't send it out of respect, because I thought that would be imposing, as he has only "known" me a short while & you know the internet protocol safety thing.
    In retrospect I should have at least given that a try...
    LOL....

    Did mobo light come on?

    No luck with one card either?

    Make sure the EK GPU block is not touching any connections (chips) on the GPU PCB, the only thing it's touch is the GPU nothing else or this will cost the the grfx to short.
    I don't know which block you have from EK but they have the one without standoffs, the flaw design one will cause the shortage.

    1) Did mobo light come on? - YES

    2) No luck with one card either? - NOPE no luck running each separately

    3) "Make sure the EK GPU block is not touching any connections (chips) on the GPU PCB, the only thing it's touch is the GPU nothing else or this will cost the the grfx to short.
    I don't know which block you have from EK but they have the one without standoffs, the flaw design one will cause the shortage."

    - I have the latest Nickle Acetal block
    I am aware of the 2 short screws needing the fiber waskers so as not to bend/crack the GFX board - we did that correctly.

    We used the heat/thermal 2 way pads where it said to do it.


    Can you give more info about the "defect" & what/where (the places) it shorts?

    Personally I don't have this experience but I've read the report from the other forums awhile back. Sorry can't remember where :confused:.

    Some models don't have the standoff from the screw therefore the block base might touch the PCB that is cause short or bend the board.

    Have you check the PSU?
    I know you have 1200w unit but to check it to make sure it's not defected.
    There's no way you have two bad cards at once, if that's the case I call it REAL BAD LUCK.

    Well - I just got off the phone with my tech buddy

    The long & the short (pun intended) of it is...

    The longer of the 2 EK Mosfet waterblocks (near the Northbridge) touches a very tiny transistor
    (I think that is the name - not a capacitor)

    It shorted & blew the transistor off the MB - there is a hole in the MB & scorch marks

    My buddy has filed off the corner of the EK block

    So tomorrow I will pick up another MB tomorrow & he will reinstall it all.

    ~$450 in the garbage (better than 2 GFX cards eh?)

    The MB still boots fine - the transistor is probably for a PCIE slot or some such
    I can mail the MB to Deton & he can play with it - if he wants

    The 2 4870X2 cards are fine & work on another MB & the PSU is fine.
    Regards, Doug

    That's is hurt huh and one expensive lesson to learn.
    As I expected the shorted cause by water blocks.

    Anyway don't feel bad I've been there. I've blowed up a $300 PSU from modding plus some other experiments :$.

    The good sign is we still want to see your worklog though.

    EK's response (cop out) :rolleyes: :rolleyes:


    "Hello,
    I am sorry to hear about your problem.
    X58 kit was meant for reference design (in chart it doesnt say V2). You have version V2, therefore we cannot take any responsibility for noncompatibility.

    If you werent sure of compatibility you should have contacted us for advice prior purchasing of block.

    Lep pozdrav/Best regards/Cordialement/Mit freundlichen Grüßen/

    You should have talked to Eddy at EK, but to be honest with you, I can see their point. You did buy and install a product that was not made for your board, that's not their fault. Who ever installed this should have made sure that the block was not touching anything.

    New board in & all the EK blocks hooked up & running

    TEMPS (ran a few 3DMark06 sessions back to back score = 18,559

    ..............IDLE...............TESTING
    CPU.........41C................53C.....
    GFX.........32C................36C.....
    MB...........41C...............42C....

    Not too shabby

    Also, just as the tests ended The temps dropped instantly to IDLE

    The flow meter in the CPU NB/SB Mosfet loops is moving well BUT
    not near as fast as the one in the twin 4870X2 loop

    Now I have to reset the RAM back to 7-7-7-20


    FRIED BOARD UPDATE

    The "burnt" part seems to only control the EPU powersaving feature
    My buds are bench testing it - when they have time - I will report back on that some other time.
    Regards, Doug
