Default Ball valve won't close

Anyone having issues with the Corsair ball valve? Mine won't close all way way and tends to leak, so I had to put another plug on the end. The handle doesn't seem to turn far enough. Is this defective?

If it doesn't close it may be defective. I received one from Bitspower (The corsair one should be identical) and it close perfect.

Best practice states you should be doing this anyway (albeit it's a bummer that the valve doesn't completely close).

^^^ As above and always cap it. However, the valve should close without massive force, so it seems that one did not come off the assembly line quite right.

I would suggest to inspect if there is any particle in the valve that could prevent it to fully close.
Make sure to take a few picture and reach to our support.corsair.com for further assistance.
