In this situation, I think what he did with the washers is the ideal solution, unless he finds some shorter M3s.

I'm pretty sure that the kit also comes with short M3 screws as well. If your's didn't then please let me know. Never mind, I'm wrong. Those short screws are short 6-32 screws, not M3 screws.

Sorry, M3 is probably the standard screw size used in computer assembly (I was talking about M4 before). Anyway, with my kit, the M3s were used with the preattached fans, and then there were the very long screws and the standard fan screws (whetever these are called, but those you'd use attach a fan into the case).

I think that even the M3 is just too long to directly attach my rad into the top of the case. I am afraid I might damage the rad fins if I am not using washers with the screw? redface.gif If I take a look at my radiator, the screw holes are maybe a millimeter or two closer to the rad fins that on the other side. It's hard to explain... thumb.gif So...if I just dial in some _short_ M3 screws and actually hit the rad fins, am I in trouble?

Oh ok cool. I didn't see any but I didn't really look too much, as the first thing I did was add push/pull biggrin.gif.

I would like to change the tubing to clear and have blue coolant running through it and add the gpu block, maybe adding in a single 120 rad on the back of the case?

Ideas / thoughts welcome.

I've never built a computer before and frankly do not know crap about computers. Here is my Swiftech h220 and the changes I made. It was pretty easy.

Strange, mine started this same symptom the other day... only hear it when the pump gets over 2450 rpm...

If it's air in the pump... Will the rad chamber trap the bubble if the rad is mounted below the pump? (My current config in my RV02)

UPDATE:

After posting I went ahead and disabled Auto PWM CPU fan control in my BIOS and start back up... Pump running @ 2960 gurgling sound randomly... I started OCCT and left the room for a bit. Came back and stoped OCCT... Gurgling gone.

I wonder if that bubble is what was causing the temp spike I was getting randomly that would sometimes shut my system down when stress testing...

Now I've got to see if it runs cooler tongue.gif

If the rad is mounted below the pump you're going to need to tilt your case so that the bubble will travel up to the rad. When you have it set up like this you will probably need to do this occasionally due to the natural tendency for air to rise and therefore get trapped in the pump.
