So I have an MSI Rtx 2080 seahawk EK x and I'd like to clean the grunge that's built up in it out but I need help figuring out how to take the Waterblock apart. Has anyone done this before and how do I do this without ripping the card apart?

ok as its the EK one you would need a heatgun to take off the decal plates as they are glued down to get to the screws as there under the decal plates
Thanks! That's what I was thinking I'd have to do. If you've done it do you recommend a specific type of glue to use to reapply after it'd cleaned to put it back on?

just some glue for hard Plastics made for perspex or glass that is clear and would be mainly down to where you live to what you can get. if your careful you may be able to get the decals off with most the Glue still on them if you get them hot enougth so they will just re-adhere to the surface.

I plan on using a heating pad so hopefully I can get all of it off in one shot with the adhesive still on the decal but thanks for the replies and advice!
