    Hi

    Looks like the XSPC block comes with M3/M4 screws with rounded heads, the reference backplate appears to have beveled mounting holes. This *may course the supplied screws to sit high and not make good contact with the block threads as intended

    Note: *Brushed aluminium faceplate, dont mix metals in a H2o loop

    Avoid mixing copper and aluminum components, as mixed metals require an anti-corrosive additive.

    atb (all the best)

    Hi,
    I've read the same thing in another forum and the workaround was to use slightly longer screws. I'm not sure what the "brushed aluminium faceplate" is, but I don't think it'll be in contact with any fluids. I'll be using Feser One coolant in any case.
