Swiftech MCB-120 Included Accessories and Swifftech MCR Mounting Screw Question(s)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay so I ordered an MCR-220-QP radiator from ebay got a good price, but a LOUSY seller. Took 4 business days to ship out, and didnt receive it till a week later. . That was the least of my worries

[long story, skip ahead to bottom line if you want]
Inside the box, one edge was crushed, shouldn't affect performance, I hope and it only came with 1/2" barbs (black) and the white barb stoppers. It however did not come with any of the fan mounting screws. When I contacted the seller I fussed at him and he said he had some "fan screws" he could ship me for the cost of shipping, but I'm sorry when I buy something I expect to get everything to operate it at it's most basic functioning level. I gave in and asked how much for the shipping he never responded. A week later I asked again, and since two days ago, no response still.

Bottom line if you didnt read the above paragraph:
I need the fan mounting screws for my radiator. I found some at PTS but noticed that I would need 2 packs to mount 2 fans, and 4 packs to mount 4 fans in push pull.

I also need a radbox to secure my radiator and noticed newegg sells it with a picture of the contents. As far as I can tell there are 12 screws which look the same to the one PTS is selling.



Will these screws work for the radiator, since normal fan screws don't fit. And will I have enough left over to mount the radbox + radiator + atleast 2 fans?

I plan on mounting the radbox + radiator + fans like this 1 push/pull, 1 pull




So how many silver screws do I need?

If I remember correctly there is only enough screws in the rad-box kit to mount the rad-box to the case and to mount the box to the rad so your still going to need more for the fans...

Well I've got the same exact Swiftech Rad, MCR-220-QP. I ended up going down to the hardware store and matching up the screws that came with the box so I could purchase a few extra ones. The ones that match are 6-32 x (whatever length you need), I ended up buying 6-32 x 1-1/4. With a standart 120mm fan and a grill, they fit perfectly! If you cant find any PM me and I'll pick some up and send them to you, I know where I can get them for sure!
