Default XG7 GPU Water Block Design Flaw

Issue:
If the tubing is applying a bit too much force on the manifold (where the ports are at) a leak might develop. Other GPU blocks in the market use 3 screws to hold the manifold whereas the XG7 uses only 2.

Workarounds:
*Try to tighten the screws, they may still be loose.
*Limit unnecessary weight on ports
