I was thinking about air testing.. But it would be too much hassle to do with my S3, especially when I have almost no time for it frown.gif

This is especially a problem with the EK Coolstream rads, as they are tapped for 6-32 threads and, let me tell you, it's not easy finding 6-32 screws in a 35mm length. Even then I'd probably use a washer or two, but it seems like most of the screws I'm seeing jump from 1-1/4" to 1-1/2" which is way too long. What have you guys done?

Maybe I can help: I ordered replacement M4 bolts from ProBolt in the UK. If you are USA, ProBolt is an automotive nut / bolt supplier. There might be an equivalent in the USA that has similar products.

Sure. That works easy. I just stripped two ends of a short run of AWG 24 wire, plugged one end into the PS_ON and one end into the Ground next to it and used the on/off on the PSU to switch the pump on an off. It was running overnight like that. No problems at all. Just be sure to get the correct pins in your 24 pin connector. Check online references. (If you are doing it the ATX / MB side they are standard locations.)

I ordered from ProBolt USA screws are nice but quite pricey

I had the same issue with m4 screws. Interestingly, the cheap ebay (Chinese ) wouldn't grab but the mcmastercarr did. I would say keep it to an extra 5mm and careful if your rads don't have a blocking plate.

I went to Ace hardware and picked up mine. You said you were looking for 6-32, right? The 1-1/4in were fine for me.

Just like you, I need 6-32 and M4/8-32. Glad to know 1-1/4" works!

Hahah yes!! My last name is Kramer, too. Does anyone know how expensive it would be to air test leaking my system?

I got the PNs for McMasterCarr off the pressure testing thread. That specific gauge is sub-optimal - mine started leaking out of the front face. I suggest finding a different one - shouldn't be hard
