What size screws do I need to attach a 120mm X 120mm X 38mm fan with a 120mm X 120mm X 25mm shroud to a H70? I will make a really rough "mock" drawing in MS Paint and attach it so you can see exactly what I am asking for so that there is no question at all. Basically the questions that I need answers to is as follows:

1) What size do screws 1, 2, 3, and 4 need to be ( I think they need to be slightly longer by a fraction of a mm because of the thickness of the wall of the case but I might be wrong too)

2) What size washers do I need for screws 1, 2, 3, and 4?

3) What size do screws 5, 6, 7, and 8 need to be?

4) What size washers do I need for screws 5, 6, 7, and 8?

5) What would the screw and washer sizes be for all of the screws (basically answer the above questions but with the following parameter) if both the fans and the shrouds were the same size ( Fan 1=120mm x 120mm x 25mm, Shroud 1=120mm x 120mm x 25mm, Shroud 2=120mm x 120mm x 25mm, fan 2=120mm x 120mm x 25mm)? Please let me know if you need further clarification but if you still do with a diagram and 5 paraphrased questions then I don't know what to say lol.

What i did to hook up my shrouds was: i got the shortest screws i could find, and attached the shroud to the radiator using the inner fan hole (the one that sits against the radiator) and attached the shroud to it, and the a grabbed those short fat screwa use to attach fans streight to the case, and attached the fan to the shroud. Just do the same for the other side and voila.

I just installed the H50. I connected the fan power connector (CPU) to the PWR fan on my Gigabyte GA790XT mother board and not the CPU_Fan connector. Instead, I connected the radiator fan in the CPU_Fan connector. The radiator fan had a three prong connector, which fit perfectly and the fan power connector had a four prong connector which fit into the PWR fan connector perfectly. Is this going to be a problem? My CPU is six degrees cooler after installation.

I'm a bit confused...but I think I know what you are saying. You can basically plug these anywhere they fit. The only thing you need to be concerned with, is where or not the pump is running at full RPM. When you refer to the fan power connector, I assume you mean the pump (CPU end of the H50). Please correct me if I am wrong. Just double check in your BIOS that whichever connector your pump is connected to does not have any type of power saving/throttling enabled. The pump should always be running at full power/speed. To check this, your BIOS should be reporting it at approx. 1400 RPM.

it should be fine, not sure about older motherboards, but i think corsair mentions that plugging the pump into the CPU fan is better because it will control the speed with temperature. if its the other way around i think it wold run at full speed all the time, just a thought i may be wrong

Yes, that is correct....CPU end of the H50. I checked the Bio, the fan speed fluctuates between 1347 and 1400 RPM. I disabled Smart Fan, if that makes any difference.

That is an acceptible fluctuation in speed. Yes, that makes perfect sense, keep it disabled. Sounds like you've got a good setup going with your h50.

If you plug it into the cpu header, make sure you go into BIOS and set the header to be on 100% all the time. The H60 has a five year warranty, so I would expect the pump to last quite a few years. Plugging it directly into the psu via a molex connector should be just fine. Using the PSU or Chassis FAN header is also fine as long as they run it at maximum speed. Having said that, some people actually turn the H50 pump down from 1400 RPM to 1000 RPM and say they notice no difference in cooling. I have no idea what the long term effect of this may be (if any).

I agree. If you have a skinny enough screwdriver, you can put it through one fan screw hole to drive a screw in the hole behind it. I did the same thing with the case mod I'm doing with an older mini tower case.

Actually, it's exactly the opposite of what you put here. The pump should not be controlled and should be operating at 100% all the time. The fan can be temp controlled. Since the fan is a PWM fan, it should plug into the CPU 4 pin header and the pump into a 3 or four pin header or the power supply. Wherever you plug the pump in, make sire that BIOS runs it at 100% all the time.

ok so i have my h60 pump plugged into the mobob called CPU_OPT thats what it says on the board, there is also (next to the 4 pin CPU power connection) a 4 pin connectro called CPU_FAN. i also have other named fans obviously, so witch one is the correct one, so i need to change this asap

Neither one. Look for PWR. That is the correct header to connect to.

The pump plugs into a "chassis_fan" connector and the radiator fans plug into the "cpu_fan" connector. Set your chassis fan in the bios to max...
