EK would like to know what's wrong there. Also would be great if you'd send me a ticket number so we can get RnD and head of support on it as well.
Possible y'all don't understand what I was trying to say to the user who placed all (the same, 1mm thickness pads) everywhere just like under his original air cooler (not only unto the main two vrm pwrstages but on the chokes, poscap, different other mosfet or controllers) ?
I've never said the EK block won't contact with the parts it's supposed to like gpu, vram and two main vrm sections (mosfet only) one on the left side and one (longer) on the right side.
I know other block manufacturers (bitspower in primis) provide pads for everything else (like chokes and pos caps) but I honestly don't think they should and I respect (and will install in) the EK's way.
Not to mention the backplate and some other pads on the back of the card, they'll also add a little more cooling to the vrm.

Don't worry mate, go on with your purchase and installation.
I still have to do mine (waiting 4ever here in the UK for a MSI Duke from Scan) so I can't share anything about the block proper contact yet, I'll however use different (better) vrm 1mm pads from Gelid Extreme (12 W/mk).
