Default Waterblocks leak right out of the box

I purchased the waterblocks for my 8700k and my 2080ti FE. The cpu block is slightly matter what I do, so that's a little annoying....but the bigger issue, the gpu waterblock leaks internally. It may have fried my card, so I'm not very happy right now. I took the block apart and found that even the Allen screws that are hidden under the black frame were all quite loose. Water was being allowed to flow right out of the block. Even after tightening everything up, there is still a leak, not sure what to do.

May be too late now, but you always want to run the loop for a while with the system powered off to be sure there are no leaks. Better to deal with a mess when a new loop fails than to let the magic smoke out of the components.
