H100 screws are to long

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Im building my pc an ive come to screw the fans onto the radiator however the screws will go through the fins on the radiator, im looking for some more washers as ill need at least 3 per screw, how did pthers fix this?
post #2 of 10
the screws are long and i have seen a few threads like this, the fins behind the screws would not get air and dont carry water so it wouldnt matter if they got bent. if you are just to paranoid to do it washers are the way to go. it should have came with some washers though. if they are not enough add some...

you can get rubber washers or some sort of rubber bushing too

I added some extra washers smile.gif, is the heat compound on the h100 ample? I read somewhere that it isnt that good?
post #4 of 10
well i use an H80, the compound isnt that bad at all in my opinion. i have used the stock thermal paste and arctic silver 5.a few degrees difference for sure so i guess if you got some good paste use it. but if not you are still gonna get good temps.

Well in using it with a 3930k and the compound didnt seem to cover all of the cpu? I thought
It was supposed to?

it will probably spread out and cover it all when you mount it, if you look at the stock cooler it just has 3 little strips that spread out.

You put the pump on and took it back off? All the heat is in the middle but most prefer to make it spread almost to the outside. But it is a matter of who is doing it. I hope you cleaned the cpu and pump and applied new thermal paste after that. But what they use will be plenty. Thanks

agreed, if you set it down and picked it back up you will have to start over.

here is a pic of a heat shield removed, the chip is actually pretty tiny but its in the center

I never do. I just use the "pea" method in the middle. I don't want that stuff making a mess and oozing out, and it doesn't really help anything. The heat is in the center, like you said.
In progress.
