I really cannot see how it can be done.

Anyone can help with instructions? Or have I gotten a too big o-ring?

Bumping this in hope that someone can chime in. EK rep also said he would be back January 7th.

Just got my Supremacy Evo acetal + copper CPU waterblock leaking!

Certainly cannot blame EK. It was working for a year with no issues. Then in August I took it apart for cleaning, put it back together, leak tested, and it continued working until today. And today I noticed water dripping from where acetal cover attaches to copper plate. The o-ring was in place and all screws were tightened.

What puzzles me is that the leak did not happen in 4.5 months and then in one day I got a pretty significant leak. I'll clean and reassemble the waterblock, making sure everything is tight, and do extensive leak-testing.

Water dripped right into PCIe slot of the topmost GPU, but it appears to have been working when I shut the system down. Hope it survived.

Definitely order a replacement gasket from EK. Is it possible you cleaned the oil off the gasket?

I rinsed it in distilled water while cleaning the waterblock. It looks fine, no damage or anything. I have not seen any oil on the o-ring neither before nor after the rinsing, never even heard there should be oil there.

And it was working for a year before the cleaning, and then for another 4.5 months after the cleaning, and then the leak started in a day.

I may get a replacement o-ring just because it is cheap, but I am still at a loss as to what has happened here.

Try using some waterproof silicone grease on the o-ring.
EVOs come with grease pre-applied on the o-ring.

An example of the above is molykote (from dow corning used to be called "111")

Interesting, never realized there is supposed to be waterproof grease on EK o-rings. Thanks for the info!

At this point, you can't completely trust that o-ring and should order a new one. Who knows? Maybe EK sources some of their o-rings from old Yugo factories in Slovenia.

Agreed; no point in risking recurring leak for few dollars - replacement o-ring is on its way, as well as Dow Corning Molykote 111.
