Eisblock Aurora GPU Block Plastic Washers


New member
After putting my system back together I realised I missed the step of putting the little plastic washers on when mounting the block to the gpu. Whilst everything is running fine I'm wondering if these are important enough that I need to dismantle everything to put them on? Are they there to increase pressure of the block onto the gpu?

The washers are to protect the PCB from the screws. Not only from scratches, but also from the sharp edges of the screws penetrating the PCB and damaging it. If you do not use them and damage occurs, you will not be covered by the warranty. This falls under "own fault".

However, the probability of something happening is extremely low. Your decision.
