    Yeah, I certainly wasn't expecting a radiator leak, honestly I thought the coolant had just evaporated since it is two years old, but I'm honestly glad it was an actual leak as I was scared that AIOs run dry rather fast. Anyway, I'm talking with Norton concerning a Swiftech radiator he wants to send me, should be a fun project to refurbish the Asetek AIO.

    Hmmm, perhaps the new Router is the problem? :roll:

    So, I have an interesting issue. I'm holding a disc. The disc says Windows Server 2003 R2. I pop it in to a machine and it says Windows XP Setup. I posted a video in this thread. Help?

    I would check the firewall settings in the router! That would appear to be the issue. Make sure that the firewall is allowing BOINC to communicate.

    The router is a Belkin n300, model # f9k1007v1. I have it set for a dynamic connection, firmware is up to date. Owners manual sucks, I cant where to allow a program through so I shut the fire wall off.

    It took me three tries to get the bent pins straitened out in order for the board to run. Saddly one pin is broken and gone. Still though, I am currently in the bios. I did get it running. I have my 2500k in it now and will be testing stability over the weekend. Otherwise this looks good. I will upload some before and after pictures here soon of the pins.

    If you still have the old router, pop it back in place and see if the errors go away. If it does, then it's the router. If it's still there, then it's not the router.

    When the new router was in place, did your Windows installation think it was a new network connection? Did it get set as public and therefore blocking the connection?

    Otherwise, if you can't install/uninstall, try the old Windows MSI cleanup utility. That will remove the program and the registry settings from the borked install and allow you to go cleanly throughout the night.

    Pictures were taken in a hurry, and 2/3 came out nicely. I don't know why but I did not keep the third consistent, and it came out poorly. The bent pins are in the bottom left of the third picture. Still though, you can see the progress. The first picture is how I received it, the second was my first attempt at fix, and the third is a working board. Will be stress tested over night.

    It set it up as public 4. I changed it to home group but I think I am going to have to uninstall everything and start over. Is there a way to get it to run as home group 1??

    It appears to have made it through the night. It still runs and boots OS. It will overclock too but that is less tested. I am a bit alarmed as I went to check on it dismourning and found it smelt a bit of burnt electronics. I am unsure as to why it does because it still works ok. Closer examination is showing that the cpu was also running at 98c. I am thinking I might of had a cooler install issue and the hot temps are producing the smell. I am dissembling now to see what I can find. I will also take a better picture of the working pins.

    Temperatures seem unusually high no matter what I do. Maybe sensor error related to that broken pin?

    Well all my rigs will be getting shut down shortly. Tonight 2 will go offline, and then tomorrow the last will go, though I'll be disconnected from the Internet tonight. The reason is summed up in 2 words..


    Princess Party

    [​IMG]

    That's a more accurate pic lol. Not my picture but you get the idea


    There's going to be quite a few people, mostly little girls screaming and yelling, here for this Princess Party my wife is throwing for my daughter tomorrow, and they'll won't be needing the heat from 3 pcs crunching and folding :laugh:

    They'll be up running again by Sunday sometime at the latest, but some may be back Saturday night. It's going to be a bit of work because I'll be breaking everything down and moving them out of the room; our apartment isn't as spacious as I'd like. :oops:

    Good news. I checked out that broken pin's location which is AJ31. It is an RSVD pin. RSVD=reserved.

    So essentially it is an unused pin. Why my 2500k is running so hot in this board no matter what I can not explain yet. Currently using the stock cooler for ease of use and am getting 80c running mcm workloads. This is stock. 1.15v at 3.7ghz.
