Please request the EK guys to offer just the copper version as well if acetal is going to be it for any block. If anything, the copper versions are made first anyway before the nickel plating.

Quick question. Is this normal when installing the mosfet block?Looks like it's not leveled. I'm thinking it's just the board flexing a bit?

Edit: just took the block off and it's not leveled. Hmm normal?

I'm really quite sad that XFX updated their PCB. I love my GPU but I want to get it under water with one of the beautiful FC7870's!

It's a large top, it has some internal tension forces after milling. It'll go back to normal after installed for a bit, no harm to your board.

The EK block I got for my M5EX was the same way, so I disassembled it and just ever so slightly bent it back to level. Works great now!!

Umm No.Face milling is intended to produce a true, flat surfacing of the material. Either it was mishandled and bent or subjected to heat and contraction in cooling. I supervise machining , fabricating, welding, and inspecting multiple materials on a daily basis. What are the manufacturing tolerances on the waterblocks you produce at EK? +/- .005 is pretty standard and usually measured by caliper/micrometer, not something seen by eye. Not trying to cause a issue, but come on. It will not go back to normal without outside influence. It will flex the board. Like your avatar, definitely dancing.

Hmm... I'm not about to take it apart and void the warranty.. I'll wait and see what Derickwm says.

It isn't. I'm not bs'ing, I've been in metals manufact. business for 20+ yrs. There will be a tolerance on the manufactured parts that are processed by their cnc mills. They use thermal pads that are .5 and 1 mm, that looks to be well beyond that.
