Yes im glad i found it. I just hope he had all the screws... i bought my UT30 new and its impossible to find the proper screws at any hardware store around here... I finally found some that work sorta but the head is to small and needs a washer to hold it on my case lol.

its expensive but perfpc sells new screws and theyre expensive for what you get. you can do what a lot people have done and drill and retap the holes for bigger more common screw sizes. you have to be EXTREMELY careful though. its what i plan to do when i run out of usable screws. the threads on my screws strip somewhat easily. i dont over-torque them they just dont tighten up. probably my fault anyway, user error.

I bought my UT30 brand new from frozencpu and didn't get any screws at all... then i went to use my m4 screws i have hundreds of and lololol they don't fit.

Those Alphacool rads use M3 screws. McMaster-Carr has a massive selection of screws of all threads and lengths. Just look for M3 screws with the head style you want(socket head, button head, machince) and the desire length. They are very affordable too. FYI, the ones that come with the rads when you buy them new would be a socket head. Personally, I prefer button head

ya i wanted to know why i didn't get them with my new rad in the first place, and why no hardware store out of the 5 i looked at had m3 screws longer then 20mm lol...

I find bottom rad ports towards front, top rad ports towards back helps

Im also going to put my EK multi-option advanced back into my loop, i think having that on the side would allow for a cleaner look.

Only thing is its all cracked up for some reason, been like that for years doesn't leak or anything just looks kinda bad.

Stop telling it jokes smile.gif

Perchance it has some form of alcohol / glycol on the loop ?
