Updated news for FB R3Gene waterblock owners
Testing is complete, but the results are inconclusive. We tried many custom and alternative mounting methods but to no avail – sometimes the board works and sometimes it trips the protection and refuses to boot. We believe there might be some issues with the ASUS Rampage III Gene circuit board design as it has little to zero tolerance to PCB bending. But the strange part is that many boards work normally with the EK-FB R3Gene block, but there are also few boards that just refuse to work. Therefore we cannot guarantee our EK-FB R3Gene block to work on just any Rampage III Gene board.
So, our conclusions are:
– if you have no problems with already installed EK-FB R3Gene waterblock, feel free to use it without any restrictions
– if you have issues with the EK-FB R3Gene waterblock, return the waterblock for refund (please return it to your reseller. Anyone buying block from our web shop please contact our support first)
– we will stop the distribution and selling of the EK-FB R3Gene waterblock until further notice as we need to perform more thorough investigation
