Alrighty so i'm back home got the block back together. My attempt at polishing the bridge isn't going that great, must have the wrong sandpaper or i'm just not doing it long enough. Anyhow put the new piece of acrylic on got it reassembled, which BTW took almost 3 hours lol. Damn O-rings are a real pain, but it's done. Though i tried to put equal tension everywhere on the block i'm not sure that i did that great of a job. Retried several times. Though i can see a tiny tiny gap of space where the acrylic meets the copper, i guess that's why the O-ring is there but hopefully it doesn't affect anything. Also the silver plate that sits on the two O-rings on top of the acrylic where the water bridges to the other piece of copper isn't sitting flush for some reason.

Right now soaking the rads with hot distilled water for 30 min then going to shake them. I might get the rads and PSU in the case before the night is over. Then i have to head to starkville tomorrow and orientation all week so idk when i'll be home again.
