If you are using them with 25mm thick fans, get M4 x 30mm length screws from eBay. There are US based sellers also who will sell it at a higher price if you don't want to wait for sellers in Asia to ship it.

Reading all the bad luck people have been having even after receiving the new rev 1.1s is just terrible. Ive been waiting myself for my RMA to come through for 3 weeks now. Submitted the ticket and had it referred to EK North America and has been with them for 2 weeks. I am so tempted to just go back to corsair, having my PC torn apart for the replacement of this item for 3 weeks now is just bad.

Well, I tightened the hex screws, the small ones, on the gpu block. I mean, by the tinest of turns, and leak stopped.

I have been stressing my system rendering something for 4hrs, no leaks, and CPU temp never over 70c, averaging about 65c with GPU idle. GPU R9 290x showing about 42c idle. Fans almost silent.

So far so good.

What about 40mm length M4? would that work for Radiator? Cuase I wanna get some from MNPCTech website, but they only have these in length of 6mm, 16mm, 40mm, and longer. So I don't get it, I thought 30mm is the right length for Radiator + 120mm fan?

Well found another hardware screw that had some m4 screws, packing all the cables from the 3 extra vardars and the splitters required a little finesse but wasnt too difficult, I tried using NZXT's CAM software and pre push-pull I was idling around 38-39* and with AIDA 64 hottest core was around 68-70*

Now idling around 34-35* havent run AIDA 64 yet but I wouldnt be surprised to see the load temp drop a couple degrees.

I don't know why they have 40mm long screws, or even 16mm long screws. You will have to ask them. But like you said, for this case you need 30mm long screws with a standard 25mm thick fan.

Here's a couple of pictures of the pushpull set up in a Define S as you can see its a pretty tight fit but it fits.

Didn't have another venturi fan so for the time being one of my GT's is doing just fine, disregard the little 750ti its a temp solution for now.

So I don't get why all these AIO coolers always use these black rubber tubing? Can't they just use a clear good brand tubing? Like they're so cheap.
