Use two short screws on each fan, its what i do if i go p/p on the alphacool rads smile.gif if you only got long screws you could shoot alphacool an email or go to your home depot and get screws in proper lenghts, last solution shouldt cost much thumb.gif

The Short screws are fine, but the long ones are simple waaay to long. I had som others laying around, but also too long:mad:

Alphacool supplies a set of 30mm screws for one side of the rad, and a set of 35mm screws for the other. That's the same #/length of screws that EK rads come with. XSPC only provides screws for one side of the rad.

The 30mm screws are meant to mount fan to rad. They can also mount fan, through case, to rad for thin/flat cases.

The 35mm screws are meant to mount fan through the case to rad for cases that are thicker than 3mm (like an aluminum case or many cases fan holes are dimpled - not flat) &/or for people using rad gaskets &/or adding grills. If they didn't include the longer screws people with thicker/dimpled cases wouldn't be able to mount the rad to the case at all.

On Alphacool rads I've noticed the space between the screw holes and the screw protection plates under them can vary from rad to rad and sometimes from one side of the rad to the other. You may find, like I did, that with one of my rads the longer screws worked through fans and the case on one side of the rad but not the other (though it didn't really matter for me as I didn't like the copper screws it came with and replaced them anyway).

If you had no such luck with your rad you could use plastic washers to make the longer screws work. A lot of people have to use washers in any case as on a lot of fans the tiny m3 socket caps on the Alphacool screws will slip through the holes without them. On some fans the provided screws work without washers, and some they don't.

Or, buy yourself some extra 30mm M3 screws which is what I wound up doing.

As to how close 30w is to letting the smoke out of the wires... well. rolleyes.gif

Looks Phanteks has lots on it's plate at the moment.. Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, White Enthoo Primo, new Enthoo Luxe and Enthoo Pro (hopefully in March), new PH-F200SP (also March), PWM hub (should be soon)...

Glad I read that again thoughtyou meant 30w per header was going to plug 8 sickle flow into two headers and use the other 4 for the rest of the case fans. The sickle flows are 4.2w each.

I would love another 2 hubs theres even threaded mounts for them.

I'm still waiting on my m3 screws though did a tiny mod to keep the Asus gtx 770 back plate.

I had to read it twice myself. That's why I quoted what I was told. biggrin.gif I'm hoping to get real specifications of what each header is able to handle instead of "guessing" what "30W max." really means. thumb.gif

Some good video reviews starting to surface from CES 2014

Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 140mm Case Fan - $14.99
+ 20% off w/ promo code EMCPWPA46, limited offer

OK, adding push would require 5 fans + 1 more for behind the empty 5.25 bay grille..... $90 w/ 20% off = $72.

So the $3 savings per fan is pulling me but my 8.4C Delta T telling me ...."whaddya need that for" ?

Someone tell me why I should / shouldn't .... needs to be mentioned, can't install them w/o another 2 Phanteks PCB's.

I need good answers when wife / kids ask me smile.gif

I'm liking the Special Edition white interior w/ white LED.

Have to say the Enthoo Luxe looks nice too... and 200mm front fan.. PH-F200SP.. wish it was PWM but with PWM hubs it will be sweet...

And a new PH-F120SP will be coming out too. biggrin.gif
