I just received an EX 240 kit with the D5 pump and dual bay reservoir. Everything seems very high quality, but there are some difficulties.
For one, the back plate for socket 1155 needed to be relieved in one area to clear components on an MSi Z77 MPower board. Not a big problem, but when I try to apply the Raystorm waterblock, it seems as it the mounting rods are too short. The block has to be tilted to even start the threads into the backplate. This is just not correct. The screws should be able to be bottomed out in the backplate while the block remains flat on the cpu. Then pressure can be applied with the secondary nuts to apply pressure to the springs. I've seen other people's plexi block mounts bent from the pressure, so I ordered the aluminum clamp flange for the block.
No way will this block sit flat on the processor for mounting. Am I doing something wrong... or what gives?
