I sent an email to the reseller and EK. I wanna see what the reseller has to say tomorrow and if EK can send me them without having to go through the reseller, as this is a reference 6970 V1 and they are getting harder to find waterblocks for, plus, I cannot locate EK 1.5mm thermal pads either. When I opened the box, I saw the thermal pads and was like "Thats is?" I looked at them and noticed one side was not clean cut, but at an angle. I checked the instructions and noticed my .5mm pad was about half the length I needed and the 1.5mm was also about half the length I needed. I have a 1.0mm pad thats one length and the other 1.0mm pad is half its length. Plus the plastic bags they came in as well as the hardware bag were all wrinkled and slightly beat-up. I didn't check to see if all the hardware is there though. Would hate to get pads and then start assembling it, only to find out some screws or other hardware is also missing. Just not in the mood to deal with more issues if there's any, so I packed it all back up for now. I'm thinking about sending all the stuff I ordered back and purchasing from someone else, most likely overseas. I'm tired of US companies pulling this crap.
