You would need to fit a lock nut on the end of the short part and two on the long part, in order to secure it properly.

Those wouldn't really work...unless the threads are long enough to go through the case and mount to the fan. Plus, that would have it right against your case...which the airflow isn't a problem (though not ideal), but likely it will block access to places where you will need attach cables.

I am pretty sure they are just posts to attach fans to radiators a little more neatly. So they probably won't be long enough.

Just some long 6/32 screws...I believe the ones I use are six inches (15cm) long. And some nuts. biggrin.gif

Shouldn't cost much of anything at any hardware store. I would just go the screw route if you don't got with a fancy fan box or anything like that. Because there really wouldn't be any difference.

You could go a little longer if you wanted more space in the back too...or shorter

Will this do bro ?


The description says :

Spare screw for XSPC radiators.

4x 6mm 6-32 UNC
4x 30mm 6-32 UNC


is it specific for XSPC rads or will it work on my swiftech 240mm XP rad bro ?

Thanks smile.gif

Most radiator threads are the same. You could go to a hardware store with the bolts that came with the rad to double check though.

Well, the ones I was talking about would be about a 150mm long.

They would go though the 40mm thick fan inside the case...then the case itself and the air gap (roughly 60mm)...then through another 40mm fan...then into your radiator. Just careful not to screw them in too far or you might damage your radiator.

This would be assuming a push setup on your radiator. Though you don't have to have another fan there. It is typically better to do a push setup though and the extra fan makes it seem more stable...but it is fine even without any fans at all.

I agree. Push yields slightly better temps than pull. Just measure out the distance you'll need and buy it accordingly.
