Either after midnight (when I get back home) or tomorrow morning I will! 😁 unfortunately the exterior of the box was a bit humid and there was a bit of condensation even on the case so I didn't try to turn it on this morning.
sounds like the supplier was scraping the bottom of barrel to get it out!

good on ya having one. everyone (mostly) is jealous here.

When mine came I had condensation inside the case and on everything basically, was slightly worried but left it from 9am to around 8-9pm and it didnt blow up💥 so all good.

all jokes asides hearing that top electronics come with condensation inside in this day and age is really odd.

I take it there were no silica pouches inside the box? very odd.

Not really, no matter how much silica gel or similar you use, it’s not instantaneous take up of water vapour.

If you have temperature changes occur quick enough to create condensation, such as build, test, box, pickup by DPD, overnight storage, then warm van...science tends to win out.

we used to ship slightly more complex and expensive electronics globally and we knew not to operate for at least 12 hours to let things acclimatise.

funnily enough science has not changed.

Mine had been sitting on a pallet for 3 full days as it happened to dispatch early Friday morning and arrived to mine on the Monday.

Plus it is a liquid series so I guess that added to me having a lot of condensation, not sure but probably was.

I think if you get it the next day there wont be much if any condensation on/in the PC.

I think the support packaging could play a part as this gets very hot when it expands so the case will have trapped warm air in it.

Looking for anyone that has went into building this week and there order date, just curious as seen people that ordered on 2nd/3rd Oct went in to building 2 weeks ago just trying to see what dates are being built now.

39 working days and still nothing :(

Frustrating part is I e-mailed before placing the order and was told the wait would not be too long.

of course of course but I have been ordering electronics at a maybe above than average consumer scale and I have never seen it.

Now if I was working at a place where I would be getting palette loads I might have had a different experience.

Its the packaging used to support the GPU i think. When it expands it gets hot, then the side panel is put straight on and probably straight into a box, so basically the inside of case is warmer than the outside.
So its a bit like a greenhouse or houses with older style windows in the colder months when you have condensation on the inside glass as its warmer inside than out, but the seals aren't 100% which on a PC case they won't be.

Long term lurker in this forum, been patiently waiting had a couple of changes here and there due to pc specialist informing me of no stock. And here i sit on nearly 50 days.
