Need help making a custom H60 mounting kit

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a problem with my Corsair H60, I don't have the mounting screws, bolts and those sort of standoffs, I only have the backplate with that things you can see in the pictures (I don't know what name it has)





Searching between all the screws I have, I found 4 screws that fit in there, they are short but I thought it wouldn't matter because the cpu block legs were in contact with the motherboard pcb, so they would be long enough, but then I found that the original mounting kit has these sort of standoffs and the legs aren't in contact with the pcb:



So my screws are too short and won't reach the backplate

I hope that you can understand my explanation, what can I do? get larger screws? do you know what size should they be? do you have any other idea?

Hardware store

I RMA'd a board with my back plate still on it ......... LOL

I just got some nuts and bolts and on the bottom of the board used some plastic fender washers ... it was total win as the mount produced a 2C drop in CPU temps clock for clock

Not sure if you can see in this pic but will post it anyway

Yes, I can, thank you

As I have a 212+ and I'm pretty happy with the temps I get, I'm thinking of using the H60 for my GTX560 Ti, I searched here but I only found people using the asetek coolers for vga's, but I think it will be easier to fit the H60 because of the mounting system, I think I have to get rid of the Zotac cooler so I'll use a blower type cooler from a burned XFX HD4850 to cool the memory and vrm, if I get it working I'll post some pics
