Hello everyone! I'm about to jump into this mod. I have a spare H55 and had a couple of questions.
I want a clean look so I'm going to be skipping the zip tie method even though it is viable as I have industrial strength zipties, but they're white
I have a EVGA GTX 570 for this project
I'm going to use the bracket(s) that came with the H55 and drill holes through them as the mounting bracket. Kind of like how Markooler did it with his H90
My question is, what size/length screws should I be using once I drill through the bracket?
I searched through the thread and came up with members saying
1) 1" long #4 screws
2) #4-40 screws
So my understanding is I would just need to get four #4 screws, plastic washers, and bolts that hold them in place.
Is there different sizes I should be considering for the screws?
I have a dremel handy and have confidence I can create a bracket from the existing mounting brackets that came with the unit itself.
If somehow I mess up with the bracket I will be ordering from keplar dynamics aka sigma_cool:
Does anyone have any experience with this bracket? Everything on their site says it will work with the stock vrm plate. ~$20 shipped.
This is my backup plan but I'm hoping I can do this all on my own - I like modding!
Dwood is out of the question as it seems he has vanished. Along with everyone's money that placed orders.
Please let me know! Thank you very much!
