Have I killed my H60 rad?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I have a corsair H60 and upon installing the rad at the rear of my case ive put the 120mm fan against the back of the case and then the rad against that. Ive put the screws through the back of the case but when ive looked at the rad the screw hole inside looks to have grinded metal in at least 2 of the 4 screw holes in the rad. Is this normal? The only screws ive ever used at the black corsair ones in the rad, so I cant see why the metal inside the rad screw hole should look like this?

anyone else notice this?

I think its just machining as long as the screws didnt go thru the core itself you are fine.. you would know due to leakage or severe imprint on the fins under the screw hole, keep in mined that the screwes go in the fan first THEN the radiator, you DO NOT put the screws in the opposite side of the RAD and try to screw ALL they way thru the RAD to the fans on the other side.



notice the head of the screw.





notice that their are NO screws on the side opposite the fan, if you want to add another fan (push or pulling in the same direction as the other) then do the same for that side. insert the screw into the fan then into the rad.:





the paint will probably come off, even if you strip out a screw hole,. its just the mount, the core (fins) are what you want to watch out for.


PS: if you used the long screws and tried to screw them in ONLY with the case as a spacer then you may have stripped the holes OR went to far and punctured the RAD, I think it would have been hard to turn before actual puncturing,

you would only need 2 screws to hold the fans on, (may have SOME noise, maybe not)

if nounting it to the inside of the rear exhaust vent sandwhich the fan between the case and Radiator, using the fan as an exhaust .



Keep in mind the orientation of the hoses, is only limited by how you can fit it in your case, and how you want it to look aesthetically best but not required is to mount so the tubes dont have to touch but a little wont transfer TOO much heat.

This is what one of the holes look like, the other two have similar metal looking objects inside and the last hole is clear I can see threw it. Thing is with this rad 99% the time ive owned it its been resting over a wooden frame and not had screws in (whilst in was used on my GPU), then week ago? I put it in a 700D, I had the fan on the exterior side of the case then i screwed through the case then through to the rad to hold it in place. Now im going to do the same as I dont have enough screws to attach a second fan to the rad. I only have 2 screws this time around so im having to screw 2 corners to hold it in.

What you think of the pic guys? Does it look normal?

looks fine, the metal will shave off a bit when you put in a screw and take one out.


as it been running?

if its not leaking its fine, if you are really worried then just run it for a few hours to a day outside the case. hook it up to a PS and then short the PS and turn it on.

What will this do?

I have screwed it all in few hrs ago, seems ok. Is there anything inside the screw hole on the rad? Cant understand if there is anything important in there, if you use two fans on it both screws must be within touching space when set up surely?

The only thing "important" is the radiator itself. If the screws aren't digging into the fins and it's not leaking, it's fine.

The worst case scenario is that you stripped out the mounting holes, but you would know this happened if the screws just wouldnt tighten anymore. if that did happen, going up one size for the screws wouldn't hurt anything. You would just have to go to some place like Ace Hardware with your original screws, explain the situation, and have them help you select the next size up.

so if the rad looks like this:



What is actually underneath those blue corners with the screw holes? What would happen if you did put a screw all the way through the screw hole?
