help with tubing/barbs - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I use #6-32 x 1-1/4" from Home Depot to attach my fans to my xspc rx360 rad. It says exactly that on the screw package, #6-32 x 1-1/4". It works fine, but it's always good to check while screwing the fans in to see how near the tip of screw is to the rad fins. There should always be clearance between the tip of the screw and the fins. The screws should never reach the fins, if it does, it's too long. Plus, fans tend to bend at each corner where you put the screw in, too, especially when screwing them in. So, gotta becareful.

I found that using Yate Loons, an XSPC RX480 radiator and 1-1/4" screws that I had to use some washers to prevent the screw from penetrating the tubing.
