Arctic really knows how to do value right. Usually value means trading off the upfront cost for mediocrity in some other areas (aesthetics, ease of use, noise, etc.).

Spider cracks in Acrylic CPU Block

Recommended Posts

So I think I tightened the mounting screws too much. I noticed spider cracks on the Acrylic CPU block top. They didn't look to go all the way through so I decided to try to sand them out. The block is fairly thick. Like half an inch. I ended up sanding off about 2.5mm off the top. Polished it up and I think it looks ok now. Hopefully. Will have to do a lengthy leak test and see if the cracks show up again. Here are the before and after photos.

Wow very good cover up job on the cracks, looks better than new. I tried similar with a heat gun over 10 years back and my results were not even close to as nice haha. 

Keep us posted on the leak testing 🙂

I wouldn't have even attempted it.  Good job man!

Thanks man. Really my only choices were, try to fix it or buy a new one, which I may still have to do if it doesn't hold up to pressure.
