Inspection

I was honestly pretty excited to get things pulled apart, because of Jay’s experience with this stuff… I was thinking to myself… This is going to be awesome! I get to pull this all apart, and boy it would be nice to see nice shiny copper, and nickle plated water blocks. Unfortunately, thats not what I found.


Boy this doesn’t look super promising….


Yeah… I did not expect to see this…


Pretty much stained the plexi completely…


After scrubbing, and withing with a nylon brush, I was able to get a majority of it off, however you can still see a border around where the rubber gasket was.


The Nickle plating cleaned up fairly well, no huge problems there at all. I am very happy for that.


Breaking open the CPU block, I noticed the same thing… Very dirty, and signs of oxidization.


Top of the water block is stained like nobodies business as well. Luckily I had a replacement for it. So not huge deal.


Cleaned up fairly nice with a nylon brush.. Again happy for that.
