post #12851 of 28252
Thanks for all the input on the screws guys. Now you got me scared about peircing the rad, I did try to put one screw in pretty deep when I was mounting the rad to the exhaust but screwing into it from the rear of the case. So there was no fan in between on that side.

I'm going to have a look now just in case.

Ok so question for you guys. I have one fan as a push fan, and the rad is mounted to the rear of my case where the exhaust fan normally goes.

I have 2 of the corsair screws holding the fan to the rad. And 2 corsair screws coming in from the rear of the case into the rad to hold it there. But one screw would not go in all the way so I stopped in fear of breaking something (now I read you could peirce it.) The bottom screw went in fine so I think its ok.

So what would be the proper way to mount this? I guess I should just get more machine screws that are short and screw them all in from the rear of the case.


EDIT I set it up in push pull with both fans mounted inside the case, only 2 fan screws from the rear of the case holding the whole thiing on though, it feels solid but king d of scares me, don't really see any other way to do it.

That's what i was told anyway, never actually done it or heard of someone doing it heh =) probably takes a pretty sharp screw(instead of bolt that should be used) and a great deal of pressure but I feel like you can't be too safe when you place liquid inside your pc case, heh.

Well proper way would be go to the hardware store and purchase 6/32 diamater bolts with whatever length you need to reach through your components and 3-5mm about? into the rad. Stock ones are 1"1/4 i think...
In the meantime use the corsair screws diagonally 2 on each side covering opposite corners to give the best temporary stability.

If you're that worried put a washer on the back screws, you would probably freak if you saw how i have mounted by sandwiching the metal bay covering (the piece you twist/break off to install bay devices for first time)inbetween the very bottoms of my fan filter and shroud =)

yah i'm using the 2 screw diaganol method. each fan is held on either side of the rad by the stock screws. but it the must be mounted in the case. so i used 2 fan acrews to go in the 2 remaining holes in the oull fan to mount it to the case. i will need to stop by homw depit to make it a little more secure

When testing a push pull with the crapy screw up fans i got from my builder i used some wood screws and sheared them off with a big set of pliers, lol. I shall have to go to lowes and grab some proper screws for my new panaflos. i just wish they would get here already.

Just received my H50 and installed it yesterday.

The good news: It was fairly easy to install and brought my idle temps down 5c and load down about 10c.

The bad news: The pump has a loud buzzing noise. Since I bought this to help quiet things down, the noise is unacceptable. I'm going to give it a couple of days to see if it just needs to work itself loose and then I'll RMA it. Hopefully the next one will be quiet.
