EK waterblock - remove the washers?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

So I'm installing the EK waterblock for my MSI GTX1080 Gaming X and in the instructions it has to remove all washers (prior to install), then later when installing the block it says if there's already plastic washers installed on the core mounting holes (4), you can leave them but not install their PVC washers.

Problem is, the GPU already has 4 extremely thin (the thickness of a pap
er - 1 or 2 sheets at most) washers glued on it. Does anyone in the know, know if I should remove these and use the EK washers (which are much thicker), not install the EK washers, or just install the EK washers ontop of the OEM super thin washers?

I attached a pic for clarity. Many thanks to anyone out there that can assist!

No need to remove the stock black washers. Just install the ek ones on top of them.
