yupp...... googled it and went there..... it's actually pretty nice that EK rep was in that forum and due to the result, he talked to his supervisor to have plate #1 to be the stock one and yes i did confirm plate #1 is in there (i went through all the plates and only plate #1 is missing)

I've installed all the fittings and rotaries (most of them... i m still flushing the rad). pics tomorrow!!! so excited!!! and to think that my TRUE is heavy.... wait till you lift up the cpu block with the 2 rotaries!! lol

You shouldn't need Teflon tape. If you build it right, it won't leak. I used Teflon tape once, and I found parts of if floating around - and no, I didn't apply it the wrong way.

Just a heads up

Yes, it will be fine. Take the teflon out, it's the O-rings that seal your fittings to your parts.

Get an Hardware Labs SR1-240 Nothing wrong with the performance of Feser, it's just that the quality of build on the HWL radiators are far superior than that of the Feser. The Feser rads have a bad finish, or atleast on the one I own, and the few that my friends own as well. Also, the fins are verry delicate. Hell, the HWL is bult like a tank.


Good to hear that you removed that teflon tape
