Dont put a metal washer on the back of your mobo as u would short it out, if u do that its the same way u did on the first place. Finds some plastic ones, and do with them

U are overtightening those spacers, as u dont need that amount of presure to be applied.

I dont have any plastic spacers... but the screws that hold the mobo onto the case dont have plastic spacers under them...
how will i know its tightened down enough?

Dkev, are your washers behind the mobo metal or plastic?

Correct?

Here is what the spacer looks like now (left) and the spacer with 2 holes is on the right. Is it still okay to use the one on the left?

its a metal washer on the back of the mobo in front of the screw head, but theres that ring around the hole.. and it doesnt go beyond that hole so im fine
Nut-washer-spacer-mobo-washer-screw. The one you smashed a little should be ok...but you over tightened it. You just need it snugg. Like I said..if you cant keep the spacer out of the hole, get some rubber washers. And leave the torque wrench in you tool box..lol.

Just tighten them up untill u hit mobo with spacer. If u dont use washer on the back there is possibility that u would scratch mobo as the screw would circle. Where do u live, cant u just go and buy some plastic ones in HD or lowes?+


There is no way possible that ur holes around cpu are bigger than corsair spacers.

If the veins start to bulge out of your neck from cranking on the wrench...your over tightening it. Really just turn it till it feels snug then give it another quarter turn. That's it.
post #1066 of 28247
all of the spacers look like that. and I didnt use a torque wrench, I just used a normal socket and my hand. So it is okay to use those bent spacers then?
Ya i could go to HD or Lowes... Gah, i want to get this thing done haha.

Okay ill keep that in mind next time.

Just tighten it untill u hit mobo with those spacers, when u hit it, it is a sign that u are done and need to stop to prevent doing same thing u did to that one spacer.

Well my results are in. I ran 1 hour of Prime 95 with and without a shroud.

First test was with shroud, push/pull (fan--> shroud --> rad --> fan)


The next test was same config minus the shroud.


Do not pay attention to the difference in Value temps. Its bc the time from when I stopped prime to when I took the screenshot's are not identical.
Its very obvious tho that it did help if only very slightly .
Take from my tests what you will, I know Ill be using a shroud from now on tho.

Coolermaster R-4 (led version) . My digital therm. read a steady 71* F in my room during both tests. 25mm shroud (gutted old Xion fan) also I'm using this setup as Intake as Corsair reccommends.
