the screws i got with my ek rads also would touch the fins, but i went out and bout washers for every hole (40 in all) for ike 45 cents and now they arent even close to the fins and i can rest at ease.

Yes, exactly, i also use black washers to be 100% sure.

Well i tested to make sure the screws werent too long and after screwing the fan down I still have like a mm of clearance left so Im pretty sure the one I had was faulty. Honeslty it looked like its been used once. It had scratches near the screw holes to begin with and the gold color was starting to show around the barb fittings area.

Well i just read performance pcs return policy and I have a feeling it would take a months to get anything back so I guess I will try to come up with the money to buy another one. Does anyone have a used 240mm rad that they want to get rid of?

Try your luck with performance pc's, they are great tho this is kinda a sketchy situation, as they could easily blame you. Just say you leak tested it before you mounted it and it leaked.

When i first was ordering my first wc'ing stuff in the spring i got a set of swiftech rads ( a 120 and 360 ) and for the love of (deity) i could not get ANY 120 mm fans to mount all 4 screw holes. i explained, they replied and said they couldnt replace them directly becaus it had been more than 30 days (still havent finished my build, just been collecting the stuff) so they contacted swftech for me and set up the whole return, swiftech sent me ew ones WHICH WERE MISMATCHED! hahah two different styles of font on the side, and i wasnt having any of that crap but then wehn i tried to mount them they wouldnt line up with my case either.
swiftech was like well we tested it and i was like well... i tested it too and it doesnt work so give me my money back.But swiftech couldnt give me money because i didnt buy it from them so i sent back all rads and they told ppcs to refund me and everyone was happy smile.gif

i have much respect for ppcs after that. plus their shipping is top notch biggrin.gif

I'm not sure if the unit I got had a leak in it already and not sure if performance pc will take care of me or not.

take the fans off, dry the rad out completely, apply some jb weld to the leak spot, wait about 24-48 hours for total curing, enjoy a leak-less radiator thumb.gif

Just a quick question would a double 140mm rad (280mm rad) be enough to cool a GTX 680 and a i5 2500K? I don't need super low temps just low enough.

The cool thing is that once you are bored with the glitter effect or if you need to clean out your loop ... you can easily reuse the Aurora

well first i would really try and find out EXACTLY where the leak is. you may just have to put some water inside and swish it around to find out where, then when you find out exactly where, drain it out and get it as dry as you can. get some jb weld, get a toothpick, dab it in the jb weld and "spot weld" where the leak is coming from. you'll have to let it cure for 24-48 hours. after that you leak WILL be gone - assuming you plugged up the leak completely, as jb weld is very very good at what it does.

yeah it will be enough but you might have to run your fans at 80%+ to get decent cooling , we usually say 120mm rad per block plus an extra 120mm for more silent or a bit lower temps ..That rule however is really really basic , it depends on fans and rad thickness , fins per inch .. But 280 is definitely enough for 2 blocks and paired with decent fans it would be no problem !
