Quite frankly these are garbage. The top piece where the fittings are only has 2 screws and is made of cheap plastic. Several youtubers have pointed out this issue to both the public and corsair. It causes leaks that can kill your computer. If you would like some links to these issues

I would give these a hard pass unless you like giving your pc a shower...................

It appears the new blocks have gone to a 3 screw setup. Still I would wait for a review before purchasing myself.

I have one of these blocks on my 2080Ti and it works great. No leaks, nothing. It is fine. No one is pulling on their video card in use, but I agree that is an unacceptable level of QA. All I know is without touching the block mine doesent leak.

I just read an article today about them adding a third screw to them. Never heard about any leaks until this thread but never considered them either.
