RX240 screws and fans questions (Screw size and Enermax Magmas)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just got a RX240 from XSPC (bought it off eBay).

I also plan to mount 2 Enermax Magma's on it.

The reported depth on the web appears to be 26.5mm, and the notice that comes with the radiator says the 30mm screws are meant for 25mm fans. How much does this matter? If I used the 30mm screws with the Magmas?

And also, where can I get 6mm screws to mount the radiator to the case as the kit I bought does not come with any. Are the screws that come with the Enermax Magmas 6mm?

Using the 30mm screws that come with the rad to mount the Enermax fans to the rad will work just fine, even if the Enermax fans are silghtly larger then 25mm. The 30mm screws should still be long enough to make it through and catch enough threads in the rad to be snug and secure.

Some 6mm screws to mount the radiator to the case can be found easily. FrozenCPU has a few different types.
Here is one: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17916/scr-416/6-32_x_60mm_Hardened_Carbon_Steel_Screw_-_Black_KM6-32x6.html?tl=g30c477s1245
The thread type on the screws that came with the fans are most likely not 6-32 and would not fit into the RX240.
