sadly for my scout...most of the front is taken up by a card reader and a fan controller...so no room to mount the rad in the front

WOW that great drop.

I have to say with drops like you must be happy with your H50.

I'm hearing from some people that the radiator is hitting the top exhaust fan if I mount it on the rear exhaust area.
Its a tight fit but it does work. I installed one in my old system.

yea with it there I was pulling about 48-50c when P95ing and before it was between 52-55c eventho all this does depend on room temp as I have seen it get down as low as 38-39 with a load of around 70-80% when I opened the window late one night.

So, I am screwing my fans and shroud into the H70 rad, and I realize the screws I am using are likely a wee bit too long. ( insert epic face-palm here ).

I remove the works, and sure enough......the screws have done a bit of a mangle-job on the fins. 3 of the 4 look pretty bad, with 1 of them completely going into the fins, squishing it's way through (not fixable by any means).

So, the burning question....just how badly did I wreck it ? Is it potentially toast ? I realize there's no liquid inside the fins, so I am not worried about leaks or anything, just how badly it will effect it's efficiency, I suppose.

I should know better than to work on hardware when sleep-deprived.....oh well.....
Thanks for any advice.

Okay do yourself a favor. If you can pull your MoBo w/o removing your Cooler I would remove both as a single unit. Lay your MoBo flat on a cardboard box. If you have the original MoBo box handy use that. Then lay the Cooler in a bowl and fire it up like you would as though your running in a Case. Your temps will increase here so no worries unless they get too high.

What you're doing in this test is doing a leakdown test. Run it until you're absolutely certain you have no leaks as revealed in the bowl. Once you've figured it out one way or the other you'll be able to move on from there. You might get lucky and not have damaged the coolant tubes in the Radiator.

I wish you well.

Hi, and thanks very much for the good advice. I was debating some kind of test, but removing it and the mobo will not be done easily.
Yeah, I am definately hoping that I might be lucky with my stupidity. Quick question.... if I damaged the coolant tubes, would it not be leaking already ? (The worst one is on a bottom corner.)

Also, are there even any coolant tubes located along the outer wall (the last row) of fins ? It doesn't appear to be, at least as far as I can see.

(Yes, I am trying to figure out if it's likely okay without resorting to yanking the whole works out...... but I know the potential disaster from a leak..)

Anyone else fubared some fins with screws ????

Not necessarily. You might not be leaking because the Radiator isn't yet hot enough to do so. If it's not I suggest running something like Prime95 for a bit til your H70 starts warming up. If you can get your system running hot w/o hitting max temp specs for your CPU and no leaks you should be fine. The reason you do so with it out and the Rad in a bowl is pretty obvious but doing it this way also protects the rest of your system from leak damage.

I apologize for getting back to you late I'm in the process of trying to get my 4.0 24/7 stable.
