Jan 30 - Finally i get to fire this puppy up !! what a pain... i had so many memory errors...motherboard kept giving me errors 1d and 29
I actually called EVGA support and worked with one of there techs...finnaly he said RMA the board cause the memory controller was shot...so i filled out the request.
Then i thought id give it one more try...tossed the CPU water block back on...litterly...didn't carfully align anything and boom...it fired up
Its running at 12C idle and 24C full load on all cores....not what i was hopping for...but maybe if i (carefully) mount the WB and the Arctic silver has time to do its thing it may drop...if not i guess i can turn the chiller down to -20C...its running at -5C now.
By the way The chiller is nice and quiet thanks to the enclosure. i may even add 2" of acoustic insulation to see if that helps dampen the fan noise even more.
