It was also poorly packaged and two corners on the backplate arrived dinged. Not to mention all the red dye I had to clean out of it. After it was all said and done I saved maybe $5 over buying it new. Learned my lesson.

need to take care who you buy from and use market place here to get better service. on the ebay purchase i would have files a case requesting money back. due to this and you would have at least got a discount due to it is cheaper to pay discount than shipping again!!!

I just call it lesson learned and move on. The block works just fine and you can't see the dinged corners with the cables in the way. I will just be purchasing my blocks new from here on out unless the deal is too good to pass up.

You will need 2x D and 2x A. Since these are no longer produced your alternative would be:
- 2x https://www.ekwb.com/shop/thermal-pad-e-0-5mm-ram-8x
- 2x https://www.ekwb.com/shop/thermal-pad-f-0-5mm-120x16mm

Thankyou!

One more sort of a nooby question about EK compression fittings, is it just finger tight or should i break out some tools ? For both pluggin them into the G1/4 and tightening the ring ?
I think it`s fingertight, but I am not all to sure.

Finger tight buit maybe use tools for putting the barbs into the G1/4 threads so you dont cut your thumbs thumb.gif

@outofmyheadyo Dont use tools for acrylic block!!! Over tightening them can cause them to crack!

(Sorry I forgot as I dont own any acrylic blocks!)

Tools and fittings dont mix. Too many horror stories of broken things.

By hand or wear mechanics gloves if you're sensative.

I`ll try by hand im not to much of a noodle finger and should manage to get em tight enough.

Those ek soft tubing compression fittings can be tough to get finger tight since the only place to grab is the short, sharp threads. I usually add about 1/8 turn past finger tight with the Allen wrench, haven't seen any damage on my evo top yet. I wouldn't recommend getting crazy with it though

When can we expect some official info from EK on this HB SLI Bridge they are working on? I'm holding off on waterblocks until I can make sure I can get an HB SLI Bridge to work with them.
