Radiator Shroud Screws

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I've read on this forum that if u break the fan portion out of a cheap fan (fans that come with the case), slip it beween the actual fan and the radiator, and it becomes a great rad shroud. but the problem is i cant find anywhere that sells screws that long. Anyone have an idea wut the size of the pitch count, and how long it is and all that stuff? Thanks.

How does that work if the screws head kinda makes a gap between the shroud and the fan? wut kind of fan do u have cuz mine are closed. cant really use fan screws to attach fan to shroud.

u got any pics of the setup? maybe u got different screws than i do. mine are the panhead screws that came with the radiator and it doesnt sit inside the shroud but rather when its tightened down the head sticks out so when u throw the fan onto the shroud theres like a 1cm gap cuz the head is blockin the fan and shroud to seat next to each other.

damn you could alway cut off a bit of the ends so they fit right or put spacers on the top of the fan between the screw head

well if u do the math. 2 fans with 25mm depth is 50mm. plus that little extra to thread to the radiator. already measures out to 1.968498 inches. so a 2inch screw would be perfect. if need be i can always throw in a silencer gasket and like u said some washers. but i was hopin someone had a better idea cuz i dont wanna spend anymore money for shipping. It costs alot to ship overseas. =X
