Ekwb vector asus rog strix 011gaming compatibility

Has anyone noticed compatibility issues with the Asus Rog strix 2080 TI OC edition cards and the ekwb vector waterblock. Ek says some of the newer Asus strix cards have some epoxy around the corners of the GPU which don't allow the thermal pads to hit the vrm, they say the fix is to remove standoffs. I was just wondering if anybody has done this procedure. I've already ordered both waterblock including the back plates because EK says the OEM backplate is not compatible with the waterblock. My plan is to just remove the standoffs anyway because they say there is no impact on performance but it would be great if somebody has done this or hasn't done this and confirm everything is working like it should thank you.
