How long do bolts need to be to add air filter to H80i?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
These inexpensive replaceable air filters seem like a good idea to try and keep the radiator and fans clean. Can anyone say how long the bolts need to be to keep from poking a hole in the radiator? I intend to have it sandwiched push-pull inhaling from the back. with this on the outside.
Thanks in advance for any tips!

A normal fan is 25mm deep, so if you're planning on fixing an air filter between the fans and rad or mounting it filter > fan > rad, you just need to take the 25mm and add the depth of the filter

I want this on the outside for easy access. The part that stays bolted to the outside of the case is maybe 3.5 mm thick, but the holes are countersunk, which I guess would add maybe 1 to 1.5 mm thickness to the total, plus maybe 1 mm for the thickness of the sheet metal would be 27.5 to 28 mm?
