Good deal man. I am happy for your success.
The Waterblock you made is a delight. I love the wavey milling.
Very shocked at the poor condition of the G5... the top plate appears to be aluminum not silver and is very scratched. I am not even going to take a picture...the guy put in what appears to be G4 EK barbs with black silicon and there appears to be rust!?!on the silicon WTH.Meaning the threads are probably screwed up and I likely cannot revert back to the original barbs even if he had bothered to include them--unless I am mistaken and the G-5 shipped with metal barbs..nt sure till I take it down.
The base appears to be in mediocre condition but flat.
I guess I will have to nut up and lap it.
Overall I am not pleased with the G5 condition...but I assume it is functional.
Send me some pics of the G5 and I'll see what I can do to help... I've performed some miracles at work.
