I got my fittings, x-res top combo, EK-FC Copper plexi Titan SE, Vario D5 and EK backplate delivered today. So fun playing around with this stuff, I can't wait till the rad comes on Monday so I can put everything together. I assembled the D5 and X-res and tested what I planned on doing in the case and realized there was no way I was getting the dual shouds/fans on the 200mm rad with the pump return on the right side. Luckily I can use the left side for both intake/return which I don't like the look of really, but there isn't much I can do working in a 600t.
I'm still amazed at the weight of the GPU block, and love how cool it is to the touch, even through the plastic bag it's still sitting in. My only gripe is with the EK backplate, the EK logo isn't aligned properly with the bottom edge of the card. It's not completely off tilt, but it's enough for it to bug me. There is a screw hole that it's covering so it should be possible to pop something through there and get it to come off without scratching the face of the backplate by trying to peel it off from the front. But I'm not confident that the glue will stick back on properly if I try to reapply it. Not a huge deal, but I am going to have to fix it
Luckily the logo on the X-Res was straight as a die
Quick noob question: Is it okay to flush my rad when I first get it with tap water?
