Problem I had was some bad threads. On three of the bad threads I was able to take a #6-32 screw of the proper length and drive it in with my cordless driver in place of the M3's. Since the original threads were so loose it was no problem for the new screw to get a bite since it's just a little bit larger in diameter. I did have one that basically had no threads, and since I don't have a bottom tap for M3 I just left it alone. No problem though, the drop in rad mount holds them all in place pretty tight.
HA! I was about to bring up the same thing mandrix. I was checking dimensions this morning, and couldn't mount 2 screws into the UT60. I know these rads perform really well, but it irks me that they don't pay more attention to detail. I'm sure it's a manufacturing issue, but I wish they would do something about it.
OK so I need some help...
This is the CPU connector that plugs into the 4pin power connector on the RIVE. You can see that for some reason, the grounds (I'm assuming those black wires are grounds, shows how much I know), are crossed over for the wiring. Normally, I wouldn't care about this. But you can see in the CURRENT picture, I have the wire going across the front of the case. This isn't because I'm lazy, it's because I need like 2 more millimeters to fit the plug into the connector up top when routing around the back of the case. So if I could get a little extra play from having the 2 black wires directly underneath the yellow wires, it would work.
My question is, can I do this, and also plug it in this way into the psu (also shown below). I have no idea if the wiring needs to be that way, but since the other 2 black wires are going into the same hole, it seems plausible that this could be done.
Underneath the label 'CPU' is where this plug goes. You can see it is an 8 pin plug on the PSU end. On the other end, it splits into two 4-pin connectors.
Here you can see the BEFORE picture
And here is the CURRENT picture, after I cleaned things up a bit. Notice the huge eye sore that is the wire in question.
