plastic/metal/rubber washer for rad mount?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm changing fans on my push/pull and I noticed my 6-32 x 3/8 screws are hitting the rad fins. I was thinking to buy some washers as a solution but wasn't sure what type to get. Should I get rubber or metal washers?

I use metal, but I don't think you'll have any problems with either type. Just make sure to measure the screw and do a test fit first to make sure you won't damage the radiator.

My preference is a single spacer, be it of nylon, or zinc/stainless steel (washer, nut).
