Radiator Screws

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So this might be a dumb question. I have tried searching web, but i think im alittle stumped on what type of radiator screws i need for mine and the length.

Here is what i have

1. XSPC 360 (will fit 6 AP-15's)
2. 1 GTS 360 rad (will fit 3 AP-15's)
3. 1 GTX 240 rad (will fit 2 ultrakaze 3000rpm's).

So what do i need? I just need help to look in right direction. I saw the piece of paper that came with my rads that said "dont pick wrong screws or might puncture into the radiator". So i dont wanna mess this up. Thanks a bunch.

1. 6/32 1 1/4"; you can use metal washers to make absolute sure it will not puncture.
2. 8/32 1 1/4"
3. 8/32 1 3/4"

Always use machine screws.

You should get them with the rad, but measure Ur fans and buy rad screws that are 3-4mm longer then fan thickness. Most rads use the standard size of M4. You can easily cut the screws to length with a dremel or a junior hack saw

Hi. I can help you find the right screws.

You'll need:

6-32 x 1.25 screws for the XSPC and GTS 360 rad.

The GTX 360 uses M4 x 30mm screws.

You can find all these screws at your local Lowes. No need to overpay on screws and shipping.

If you need them in black, just spray paint them or dip the heads in black paint.
