If you purchase EK products, follow their instructions carefully, especially number 2 when installing a GPU block.

1. This product is intended for installation only by expert users. Please consult with a qualified technician for installation.
2. Please remove your Graphics card from the computer to assure safest mounting process in order to prevent any possible damages to your GPU and/or graphics card circuit board (PCB).

Something tells me someone actually tried to install a block with the card still in the motherboard and went to EK after they ruined their card wanting them to replace it. It's like people not using a CPU cooler because Intel doesn't provide one any longer. :rofl:

I wouldn't be surprised at all. Especially when leaving a 1 egg review on a Hydro Copper GPU because they were running the HC w/out a loop and the GPU was having a thermal shutdown only than to realize, they were upset at the fact that they weren't told they needed a liquid cooling loop for it.

Unfortunately, it is....... search the internet. :) I don't know about the current line of Intel CPU's, but I used to watch YouTube videos of someone removing the HSF from a running Intel and AMD. The Intel kept running, albeit like crap, while the AMD went poof.

That was a crazy number of years ago though. They added thermo probes and throttling to the BIOS many years ago.

But that means I believe both AMD and Intel CPU's would keep going without a HSF until the system shut off. Anyone want to try it? :)
