    Ordered 64 liquid, but also no confirmation from DPD for tomorrow delivery.

    Some reviewer pushed the blower to 1975Mhz core stable, but was throttling a lot due to heat. I want to see how far we can push this baby under water :)

    I have a 1000W platinun leadex, great investment which bought for the 295X2 3y ago for £130 from OCUK, and going to bench it with it's stock fan, but also with 2 vardars and with full water block on a 360mm loop on it's own. (when EKWB released the X399 monoblock for the other loop).

    I ordered over the phone and got a purchase email from OCUK at 14:19. I then phoned again and ordered a psu which I haven't had an OCUK order email for. I've heard nothing from DPD.

    Does anyone know if the sapphire retail cards have the warranty stickers on the cooler screws? All my other sapphire cards haven't.

    The "packs" include games. On my OcUK invoice it shows the card and the 2 free games/voucher codes -
    I've also had an email to go to an AMD website to get the codes but I've not done it yet until I get the money back from Steam -

    Just seems they got overloaded with orders and some are on the backlog, though considering some of us ordered a few minutes after 2 it makes me wonder what their order sorting process is. :confused:

    My last order of liquid metal i never got a dispatch email on either, so this could be more of the same.

    I'm getting grief now from the Mrs as the kids are starting back to school on Wednesday (Scottish schools start earlier) and I'm supposed to be taking her shopping to get final school stuff for the kids but obviously want to be in the house for the card coming...

    I'll be very happy if I can get 1700mhz out of my 64 air once I get the EK goodies on it. Anything higher is a Brucie. Going to drain my loop tomorrow and take out the 390 crossfire. Not to thrilled about running this on air with that blower, EK not shipping the full cover till 17th then the backplate is 27th I think.

    According to EK the backplate is cosmetic, and the block is compatible with its stock backplate. Which if is the grilled one, looks better for cooling, if is some air flowing around it.
    Personally i will keep the liquid as is until October, when EK MLC is out.
