Internal Leak in GPU Block?

This is a EK ASUS TUF water block for RTX 3090.

 

There appears to be water flowing internally in the block where there isn't supposed to be water. There also appears to be dried up water in the corners of the block. Is this normal? I have no leaks in my loop, but it appears the block is internally leaking? I'm not entirely sure, I haven't seen this any of my other blocks.

 

 

you can really see it at the 25 second mark in the video above. You might have to put it in full screen mode to see the water flowing that I'm talking about.

 

Is this normal? Thanks for any help.

Yeah, there's not a complete seal there like around the edge of the block with the o-ring. You can do things to make a better seal when taking it apart to do a deep clean, but doesn't make any major difference

oh ok thanks, seems like there will always be a slight leak there because no o-ring?

normal, but unfortunately its not going to look pretty if it dries up inside with pastel.

Yes slight seepage between the chambers is normal due to no sealing ring. There are block makers out there that specifically add o rings channels between sections such as this to prevent that from occurring and market it as a selling point.
