Just above the screw driver, the o rings and OUT port plug are in and all but 1 screw will go in tight, it just keeps turning not locking in place. Its leaking from all sides tho
It sounds like one of the screws is stripped out and the top isn't sealing. Is there an o-ring that goes between the two pieces that could have slid out of place? I had that happen to me when I put my CPU block back together after cleaning. The gasket slid out of place and it was leaking from all the sides like your top is
Are you only using two screws to mount the CPU block?
Those D5 Upgrade Kits come with screws that are too short to adequately hold in plastics.
Take the one that's stripped to the hardware store, it should be 3mm diameter, and get some 2mm longer and some 4mm longer.
If the 4mm are just a bit too long, dremel off a mm or so.
The idea is to get them to have as many threads holding as possible, but not be so long that they can't cause the o ring to compress enough to seal.
Once you get a perfect length screw, it should hold enough in the partially stripped hole, other wise you'll be buying a new top, . . .
but at least you'll have the right length screws this time.
