*HELP* XSPC Raystorm stripped hole - Page 3

post #21 of 52
I wouldn't risk it personally. I'd drill it out and put the next size screw in place.

This. Acetal is very easy to tap once you drill the old threads. McMaster-Carr should have you covered for oddball machine screws and taps. Rather than buying a thread gauge, I bet if you shot a friendly email to XSPC they could give you existing thread and screw dimensions.

At the very least use a sealant. No sense in rolling the dice on a pricey purchase.

The only thing is, I don't want to use the sealant and then have the stripped out screw not hold enlighten into the sealant so it just leaks anyway. At least now it's staying. I'll see how it is after these 48 hours of continuous running

So after some thinking, I might just buy a whole new block. Any recommendations? I was thinking one of th EK Supremacy ones. I don't even know knkw what site to order from since FrozenCPU went to ****.

Like I said put a small. Amount of jb weld. In the broken thread then put the screw in leave it over night then tighten it the day after as I make my own water blocks and I drilled the wrong size hole in the middle and I just used abit of epoxy around the threads on the screw then left it over night then screwed it tight the day after and I've undone it around 5 times to clean the block and it works very time screwing it back in there

Won't that make the screw unable to come back out?

The best thing to do it don't clean the screw and put a small amount on the treads so the screw can go in and out but will stick inside the block technically it just add to the block making new threads as most epoxy glues you can actually drill and tap

So just use a tooth pick to put a little bit on the threads and screw if in like 70% of the way. Then the next day screw it down tight? Should I do this with the block assembled or only the acetal top

Just put it on the bolt then screw it in just before the threads jump leave it then tighten it up should be fine

Wouldn't the epoxy run out of the hole and cause the copper part of the block to stick to the acetal?
