I bought a liquid pro 240 cooler last weekend and went to install it tonight on my new build. When I removed the block from the box I noticed that there was liquid around the entrance to the hoses in the block (both sides) Please see photos. I believe that this may be defective and did not install it.
I am now stuck with a new cooler and no computer as I do not want to risk putting this in my machine and have it leak over everything and ruin all of my components.
Is this a common problem? I assumed it is the water from the cooler. But when I felt it it feels a bit like oil.
