Sorry you cant find these screws.
Try on-line at Home Depot or Lowes. They may ship to Canada.
Not in the context that you used... is it just because I'm shopping online for screws? What's wrong with that lol.

I've already checked my local Home Depot but if I can find a Lowes nearby I'll give it a shot, thanks.

edit: Finally had a chance to take a pic of my rig

I got a question for you guys. According to the set up in my sig (click spoiler). (I'm also going ot be using AP-15s on the H50 for a push/pull configuration) Should I have the H50 in exhaust or intake?
post #14063 of 28252
I would say it depends on your Case layout, but i would think that as intake(factors to be involved) you would get cooler temps.

I would also recommend a shroud on the push side of your h50

A shroud moves the face of the hub away from the radiator face thereby eliminating the "dead-spot" that the fan hub would otherwise create.

The dead-spot is the area that receives no direct air flow.

Hello fellow H50/H70 Owners! I just got my H70 unit this afternoon and installed it, at the moment im not sure if its that good or not compared to the previous one i had which is a mega shadow.

i have it in a push/pull config, 1800fan pushing and 1400 pulling, is this the best set up? im using xigmatek and one of the stock corsair fans that came with the h70 while scouting for fans i can buy.

At the moment, i'm getting an idle temp of 40-41C :S. I tried reseating twice, and applied different amounts of TIM but to no avail...

I have a feeling its the setup of my fans at the moment? I have it on top as an exhaust... ** if you know what a FT02 looks like. any suggestions?

thanks ^_^

will post pic when i get this sorted... I r wanting 2 be in clubz 2!

Nice choice for top exhaust! That's how mine is (H50) and I get great temps.

I suggest using matching, good quality, fans. This make the push/pull "work better" since the air is being moved at the same speed.

Edit: Did you remove stock TIM? It's good Shin Etsu that comes with it so it's recommended by many to leave it on there. If you did remove it what did you replace it with?

Depends what kind of TIM you used. Did you leave the stock TIM your first try? Depending on the TIM used there may be a cure time and temps shouldn't be counted final until that cure time is passed.

Oh I get it. So the shroud goes between the push fan and the radiator giving it space for me air, right?

Another question I have is that one I get my build together is it recommended I use a different thermal paste or stick with the one that's already applied to the H50?
post #14070 of 28252
i used a dab of AS5

ahh.. so fans that has an equal speed is better than having a fast/slow one?
