D-Tek Fuzion mount mounting?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I have the Fuzion block and the Quick mount and Pro Mount (bought both just in case, not sure which I will use yet, likely Pro). Neither mount came with instructions and I am a bit confused on how to attach the mount to the water block.

I believe I need to pull the Allen screws out of the water block and attach it
with those, right?

The main reason I'm confused is that the mount comes with 4 new screws. Do I
need to use those or can I use the originals? I hate to replace good Allen head
screws with Phillips head unless I have to. Are they a tad longer to account for
the mount or are the screws for some other purpose entirely???

Thanks for any tips!

Yeah I think they're slightly longer. I used the hex screws personally.

Btw, be sure to open up the waterblock and make sure the o-ring is clean. Mine had a lot of extra material hanging off.

So I am right about the basic method of attaching it, it goes on the 4 screws that hold the block together. Didn't see any other way but have never done it before and don't want to screw it up...

I cleaned the slag off the seals yesterday, glad I had seen something about that earlier, it was really bad.

Thanks much for the reply!

I am not sure what you have exactly, but I think the pro mount is like the older mount. Mine has 4 machine screws that I run up from underneath the mobo with plastic washers on each side of the mobo. I then use 4 thumb screws to secure the machione screws to the mobo.

After the mobo is back in the case, I put the mounting plate over the 4 machine screws and secure with springs, inserts, plastic washers and 4 more thumb screws.



edit: You can see in the pics that the screws come up from the under the mobo and pass through the mounting plate. The only difference in the pic is that he is using machine nuts instead of thumbscrew/spring combination.

I thought about that but I found that the Quick Mount kit, which doesn't use a backplate, comes with the same 4 screws. I think I need to look at the ends of the mount legs more closely tonight and see if they are screws (which I assumed) or actually nuts (which would bear out what you are saying).

Thanks much!

OK, mystery solved, at least mostly. Should have looked at the legs before I asked. The legs are screws, they screw directly into the backplate. Therefor the 4 screws, which are identical to the stock screws except they are Phillips head instead of Allen head, are apparently just "extras".They are no longer so no reason that I can see to use them. Mounted the mount with the original screws.

Thanks for letting me pick your brains
