They're plastic.

Thx guys. So ... good enough to use as plugs? Or not and should be replaced?

Personally I'd replace them all with proper plugs, I don't trust Acetal, I've stripped too many threads. Also a few people have reported leaks and them stripping easily.

You have to be really careful with the stock plugs/caps whatever you want to call them . . . I usually refer to them with 4 letter expletives . . .

They are not hard to overtighten, but the worst aspect of them is that they come with very very soft O-rings, and when you tighten them, the o rings shred, and you get these little mystery leaks.

Also, the port threads are not always cut well or cleanly, and using a metal plug doesn't go In far enough without running a G1/4 tap into the port first.

I love my SR2 MPs, but truthfully, they don't measure up to the usual quality of fit and material that I have come to expect from HWL.

When did you get yours? They've changed the process from stamping to broaching recently and the SR2 560 MP I have here has no issues with the port threads, and the stop plugs are not going to strip easily. I hear you on the O-rings though- mine haven't shredded or anything but it is easy to get a flat spot on them.

post #18088 of 22421
I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I need some screws for my EK vardars on my rads using the caselabs 140.4 side mound in the SMA8. What length size screws did you use?

I'm having as issue where I bought I certain lenth (I forgot was size), and they work. However, some reason I can only screw in 1, 2, or 3 into the radiator because those others wont fit. I don't know what the problem is. I know I have at least 1 or 2 cm left before I hit the fins or screw stopper on my 560GTS. I think I need longer screws.

Has anyone had an issue where they can only screw in less than the 4 screws?

Correct me here, but you already bought longer screws for the rads? If so, then that is different from your issues of not all the fan holes lining up. When did this happen? I thought you had the 560GTS with fans in operation for a while now/

I did buy longer screws and I do have the fans installed. However, the holes don't seem to be lining up, so I can only put in 1-3 screws per fan. One of my fans only has 1 screw in because the others don't seem to line up. I only have 11 screws screwed in. I couldn't fit the other 5. Let me upload a picture and show you what I mean. What type of screws should I buy for M4? The stores around here don't exactly sell that type.



Actually let me reword that. The holes do line up, but once I have the fan In place, I can't seem to screw in some screws.
