shroud bolt length

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I want to find an appropriate length bolt so I can use a shroud with my AP-29s.

I think the GTX240 uses M4-0.7 screws and since fan (25mm) and shroud (25mm) does this mean I use 55m? 60mm? or 2 1/4"?

I really dont want to puncture my radiator

*I wish they just made the holes through and through like the new Corsair Hydro series.

Just installed 20mm shrouds and a 50mm bolt done the trick. So in your case 55mm will suffice.

There was enough space in the rad for ~10mm?

The GTX240 comes with (as do all HWL GTX rads), 28mm M4 bolts, however you can't buy 28mm bolts. You either use 30mm and add a fan grill (~2mm) or purchase 40mm bolts and cut them down to 28mm.

Sorry. I thought you meant you used 20mm shroud with 20mm fans
