As much as I'd like to try that. I personally don't think I have the skills to try something like that. ><

Because it would still be lifting up.

All you do is get some sandpaper and move it back and forth along the area that is too thick on the waterblock until you sand off enough that it's the right height. Just use the same grits sandpaper as they do when lapping. I would assume with the size of those chokes that are causing the problem, the whole procedure might just involve you wrapping the sandpaper around the top of 1 finger, and moving that back and forth up and down the indentation of the waterblock here:

lol do it. Would take you 15-30 minutes max ... especially if you only have to shave off a skin-thickness layer

You'll lose the flatness that way. A better way would be to get a mold polishing stone from mcmaster carr for 4 bucks. Get some oil have at it.

How much material are you talking about here? I'd reckon 400-600grit with oil to be safe and to not destroy the surface.

I'd just resell blocks and get universal VGA blocks.
Or'd get a verified card.

Thanks in advance.

I would try and see if it would fit, using .5mm pads where the card is suppose to be taller, and use 1mm pads everywhere else.
Just make sure you have even contact on the GPU, i.e: mount with thermalpaste, then unmount to verify contactpoints.
