the seal is wrong

According to Arctic, the problem was identified as part of “routine quality checks“discovered. Only Liquid Freezer IIs (test) that were delivered between May 2021 and March 2022 are potentially affected. With these, a chemical reaction with the copper cooling plate and resulting deposits can occur if the seal is not sufficiently vulcanized. Over time, the cooling performance may be affected or even coolant may leak. Since this degeneration is a long process, there is no need to rush.

For some products, a chemical reaction may occur between the copper cooling plate and the gasket because the gasket is not sufficiently vulcanized. This reaction of sulfur residues and copper plate can cause deposits which can eventually lead to reduced cooling capacity or even loss of coolant. […] Seal degradation is a slow process that can occur within the 6-year warranty period. So there is no reason to panic. However, we recommend that all affected coolers be serviced as soon as possible.
