The screws are roughly 2.25" in length. I couldn't find that exact length so I had to buy 3" screws in 6-32 tp and a small bag of hex nuts. I threaded 2 of them per screwas close to the head as I could get and screwed them into the Radiator. Then I tightened one nut to the fan then the other to the first one.

I used a Sharpie to mark the thread that was to be cut and used a pair of pliers that have the wire cutter and snapped off the heads at the mark so that the nuts remained and the head did not. Moved the nuts to the marked end and screwed them into the Rad one at a time. Once I was satisfied with the results I painted them satin black up to the Radiator threads.

Another thing you could do, which is what I ended up doing because I couldn't find 3" 6-32 screws, is use fan screws. They're long enough to screw 2 fans together and then you don't have to worry about washers or anything. Then just use like 1/2" 6-32 screws to screw the shroud to the radiator.

Hi all,I posted this over at the H50/H70 club but no reply yet.
I have had the H50 for about a year now, Did a little mod on the pump cover now I was thinking of replacing the tubes. Is it possable to reuse the fluid that is in it and add distilled water to top it off?
I was thinking of putting my rad in the top of my case and the tubes are to short to put it there. I do not plan to put a res on it as I am planing to get a XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Kit soon with the new build.

I'm sure you could reuse it if you capture it and filter it so no debris gets in, but how do you intend to top it off without a res?

Thanks for the information. This may be way off topic, but for fan silencers, is there a differences between one made of silicon and silica gel? Is one better than the other? Thanks

Pretty sure there isn't. It's just another way to describe the product.

The only thing I can think of that may be different is the end result. One type may be opaque the other one not.

Thanks for the fast reply, I do plane to filterthe fluid as for topping it off there is a screw under the cover that plugs the internal res this is how Corsair fills them. Here is some pics of refilling it they are from a thread over at EVGA forms.

And proof that these things are not "submerged in a coolant bath" as some people have speculated. With the exposed PCB it makes no sense for Acetek to expose them to the acidic properties of the coolant.

It smells like antifreeze correct?

In any case +Rep for the useful information. Extremely helpful for anyone who is looking to Mod one of these.

Maybe Killhouse can add a link to it in OP?
