On the other hand, thanks to my build log in the TX10 there are now at least 2 people who will be placing an order for the exact same configuration: TX10-D + Extended top + Pedestal

So now I feel the CaseLabs guys should get the selfies done at the very minimum as a thanks biggrin.gif

For anyone who has used ACool Rads in their cases, do they come with the right screws to mount them in the radiator mounts with fans on the other side? So the screws would have to go through 25mm fans, through the radiator mount, and into the rad.

Just trying to purchase any last minute accessories before my case gets here. I know inevitably I'll have to purchase some more things once I get things situated in my case as you can't think of everything.

You get both 30mm and 35mm screws if that's what you meant. Note that they use hex head M3 screws so you may need washers depending on the case/rad mount used.

I just got my T-shirt from CaseLabs, it is very nice. Thanks XNine biggrin.gif

I tapped all my alphacool rads to M4 so I have a bunch of the stock M3 screws as extras. Though, the hex head is a tad small and may just pass through the whole for the stock M3. For my rig, even passed through the thick CL brackets, 30mm was well enough. I even managed to get through the bracket with the annoying alphacool rad's extra plugs. Mmcmastercarr.com sells the best screws imho compared to the ebay ones I've purchased as well.

The stock M3 hex screws worked fine for my with the TX10 rad mounts, no need for washers: http://i.imgur.com/Uf9rzfo.jpg (big image, click to zoom on screws). I used 30mm screws on either side as well, PPC had sent me copper versions of the screws that originally came black so I had plenty for push-pull with 30mm.

How did you manage to get the extra plugs to not hit the rad mount? It was near impossible for me so instead of getting a gasket, I put the push fans in between the rad and mount.

I'd only be concerned of the head being too small to pass through the holes of my AP-15's as that's where they be sitting. For me it's going to go screws > fans > CL radiator mount > radiator.

It pushes the rad out a bit on the plug side but it grabs with the mcmastercarr screws. for some reason, the ebay screws don't grab for this part.

I'll take at look at the ones i have and measure them.

I wasn't too impressed with how they tighten down also, some would just spin, the stock hex head screws, so I got them to a point where I knew it was secure but coming from XSPC radiators, the mounting screws were so much better with XSPC. Thought about replacing them as they're bad in my opinion, Geggeg also mentioned, they come with 30 and 35 mm. Hoping in the future it's not an issue if I ever have to remount the radiators again or change cases for some weird reason...

XSPC uses 6-32 screws with a nice philips head. Definitely better and I trust them to hold the weight more than the M3 ones that are holding my 480 Monsta with push-pull fans to be honest. So far everything seems fine, the drop-in rad mount gives some strength to the entire assembly too.
