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.

I think you may have shifted the rad mount too much in one direction. Loosen them all, line up the extreme holes and screw in the fans at the very end then go towards the middle. See if that helps. As far as what type of screw, head aside most M4 screws come in 0.7mm pitch, so the length of the screw is really the only variable here.

Edit: I saw your edit now. If the holes line up, make sure the screws go in the rad without the fans or mount in place first.

I'm going to go to the hardware store in a few weeks and get slightly longer screws. As of now I think the screws are just barely tapping into the screw holes on the rad. I had to originally get them because the 30mm screws that came with the rad were way to short.

When I add the hard tubing to finish off the build, I will take everything down and work on the screws. I just keep running into problems. Lol

This Exactly . . . . . put the screws into all the mounting holes about 4 or 5 turns with the fans removed and see that they all stick straight up and not skewed off at some angle.

Use pliers or your thumbs to push the offending screws until they stick up straight, doing that gets the rad flange aligned properly.

Once all the screws are perfect, then the fans will go on and all the screws will line up and screw into the flanges properly.


I got my MPs in mid December, no idea how long they were in the PPCs warehouse before that.

I did notice that I had lots more screw issues like Steezy's with the MPs than any other HWL that I've had, . . and I've had a bunch.


I also found a number of the M4 holes needed to have a tap run into them . . . At the time, I just wrote it up to having the white rads and lots of paint, now I'm not so sure it wasn't just due to QC issues since so many holes were cockeyed as well.

The ones that came with my white version look plastic to me.

Although the Delrin really does feel strong like it could do the job, believe I would listen to D's advice and at the very least replace the o-rings with a higher quality rubber, some of the extra stock Delrin plugs included with my rad were completely compressed and flat, doesn't look like those flat orings are ready to provide a high pressure seal.

My configuration is probably the strangest of all since I'm running one soft tube from the front of the rad in that small 25mm space before hitting the chassis front, had to use a Bitspower 90 rotary "short edition". It's the same part as the standard rotary without the knurled area for tightening/loosening, so its only 18mm in height instead of the normal 28mm. Using the side port just as had hoped, to feed directly into the S8S left chamber to the pump/res and other radiator, although in this pic I have a full size 90 rotary, looks like a 60 degree is going to be a better angle as I have to move slightly forward to enter the rectangular cut-out and into the chamber.

Using two of the very cool looking Bitspower "gas cap" stop fittings as an aesthetic accent in the midbay of the case where they will feature looking down through the top window, and adding a Bitspower thermal probe (white arrow) might as well buy a white probe even though it won't show underneath the vertically positioned rad.

So out of the eight ports on the MP 280, that accounts for five of them, so I'll need to pick up three very low profile brass stop plugs in black to seal the remaining ports. Try to get those three for around $1.49 to $1.99 each nothing fancy, and add some new fresh never been used G1/4 o-rings have plenty of those already hanging around.

#timetogetsuedbyapplesohard

leave making copies of other peoples work to thermaltake, that is so clearly the silly trashbin case that apple made/makes, and if they dont own the patents to that design (which im sure apple owns) and didnt get licensed by apple to use (which is highly doubtfull) they are going to get destroyed in the legal battle adventure that apple is going to take them on. I mean apple sued Samsung for having a square screen with rounded edges, AND WON.

they may have discussed this in the video? I did not watch it.

I agree with you, if Apple can they will drop the hammer down on this.

Nah. Looks way too much like an Apple product. We create our own designs and will continue to innovate. Gemini will bring lots of new things as well as others families/cases after it.

The problem with a round design like that is the need for limited or proprietary hardware. We have to keep with industry standards to ensure proper fitment with the diverse amounts of watercooling and other hardware on the market.

Theirs only enough room for the side or the back. the bottom their is zero room and the front you can't gain access to.
