Or 30mm length to mount the rad with the fans directly on the case wink.gif

PS: any plan do add Predator 240 without CPU block (so you can cool a GPU)?

I used M4x10 to fit my Vardar to get my Push/Pull. Just dont over tighten then come very close to fins on rad. Add a washer and your fine. Only issue is right next to resevior. There is not much clearance due to the edge of the rad. I ended up having to use a bunch of washers, so only a couple threads from the screm stuck out the bottom. Enough to grab the threads of the hole and hold.

It says right on the EK website (https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xlc-predator-360-incl-qdc) that the EK-XLC Predator 360 uses the "CoolStream PE 360mm radiator." You're above statement seems to be contradictory.

No extra screws came with my EKWB EK-XLC Predator 360 Water Cooling System. EK should include a full set for the other side.

I just went out and bought M4 screws and they do not fit, bit 6-32 appear to fit. This is beyond annoying.



Also, some of the holes are blocked - so how are you supposed to use the holes?


My M4 fit just fine. At the end with almost zero clearance on the Rad, I just used enough washers so as 2-3 threads stuck out the bottom of the fan hole enough to grab hold and secure.

Yeah, i used that screw too. No probllem for me since the Corsair SP are wider (the height of the hole) than the Vardar

Does anyone have an EK Predator 240 in a Corsair 400C? If so, have you mounted it at the top or front, and which would be optimal?

Corsair is showing the 400C with a 240 AiO in the front in push/pull. So a Predator 240 should easily fit there.

Because 120mm fans can be mounted with an offset to the mainboard side, it should work perfectly well in the top as well:

I get cancer when I see tech sites doing cooling benchmarks on undeliddee ivy/haswell processors. I mean the thickness of IHS glue itself will make most results invalid.

Really, Cancer? Is that a typo or a weird auto correct?
Some Ivy-e procs are soldered so delidding them are not real options. I was looking into delid my 4930k but it was explained that the 4930ks are soldered on so delidding is not recommended as there is a good chance of damaging the chip in the process.

You're supposed to run cooling tests on soldered processors smile.gif because of better heat transfer. Glued ones very in thickness of glue, as well as thickness of garbage cooling paste between die and IHS.

No i just get like.. umm.. mental cancer, no auto correct there. biggrin.gif

Can the fans run at a slower speed on the radiator?
