  1. It's a genuine Microsoft usb install media. It doesn't give me the option to boot from usb for some reason, l even tried reverting to default settings incase I had something set wrong. No luck. Yeah I did update to 1302 manually.
  2. I have an Asus z390e not cooperating with me. I'm trying to install windows 10 on an SSD and it refuse to boot the usb install stick. I disabled secure boot and fast boot and enable csm. This was never a problem before, has this changed with bios updates?
  3. Sorry guys for the late reply. Thanks for you suggestions. I ended up staring at it another few hours, putting around before I noticed that the cpu block was assembled wrong. The cold plate was installed in the wrong orientation to the jet plate. Good old EK. Its like every build I have some sort of issue with an EK product, and they used to be so good with QC.
  4. Hey all. Anyone have experience with the Ek DDC 3.1 pump? I'm building a PC 011 for a customer and they supplied all Ek parts, including the side mount disto plate which comes with a DDC 3.1 pump. I have lots of experience using d5's and DDC's in the 3.2 and 3.25 flavors from Ek and swiftech among others. This thing seems to be giving me problems. I'm trying to do a first run of the loop with distilled water and the flow is anemic at best. It will not cycle the loop fully, it's just a medium trickle. I was trying to cycle it for hours yesterday with no change in flow. The pump impeller has no air in it and the bios says it's running at just over 3000 rpm. So I'm at a loss here on whether it's just me, the pump sucks or its defective. Loop is two pe360 rads, cpu block, GPU block, vrm block and distro plate. Any help would be appreciated
  5. Not enough to justify building the loop. What case?
  6. Because the side mount radiator option is not compatible with the front mount distro plate.
  7. Sounds like the pump is dying.
  8. Yeah I got the flints cleaning kit. I will be using Conductonaught, the thermal paste was just to check fitment, clearances and contact. As you can see from the pictures its a tight fit with the Apogee drive II. You can see where i touched down on some of the caps on the left side, and you can see on the left side of the cold plate where I had to remove material to clear those caps. I actually need to install that center screw and then grind half of it of to clear completely, on top of already opening the mounting screw holes to move the block over to the right more.
  9. They literally were just released. I didn't fall in love when I happened across the release last week. I'm even less interested at two and a half to almost three and a half times the price of the velocity and the previous supremacy CPU blocks. I don't think there's gonna be any magic unicorn jizz in these blocks that makes them meaningfully better performers than the velocity line. Consider that the best blocks on the market are arguably Heatkiller from Watercool, and they're what maybe 1-3 degrees better than other offerings the likes of EK. If you like the less minimalist design with $36 trim rings have ate it. I'll make a hard pass.
  10. As far as I read weeks ago, a bunch of university doctors and researchers traced it back to october. Pre dating the wet market.
  11. GPU temps look normal to me as do cpu temps. My 1080ti overclocked doesn't break 42c
