Corsair 800D Radiator Mounting

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I received my 800D this morning, went to install the radiator and fan to the top of the case but the screws i was supplied with the Radiator they go straight through the holes in the top of the case so i need screws with a bigger head.

Needs to be Case > Fan > Radiator

Anyone have a clue what screws to buy?

Thanks

From the sound of it you may have gotten M3 screws possibly? What radiator did you get and what fans did you get? You could just use some washers if the screws are long enough.

Wow, those must be some tiny heads! I think what I did, that also added a slick look to the top of my 800D, was use... iirc (not at my home comp) Stainless alan-headed screws. Looks great, and they should hold up against the case just fine.

Then again, washers can be quite functional as well

Use M4x10mm socket cap screws. Get them at Lowes or Home Depot. They work really good.

I have the same setup, iI just used the flat heads that came with my 700D.

Edit: unless you're going P/P in that case what TheSchlaf said.

10mm length? Hows that supposed to help the OP mount a fan and rad?

Not 100% sure this is possible for you, but the way I have my rad mounted is:

Fans screwed to the rad, then fans screwed to the case with self tapping fan screws.

You have 12 screw holes to play with so the load is pretty spread out anyway...


Edit:

otherwise go with what others have said, either washers, or your rad probably uses M4 bolts, so you could get some 30mm M4 bolts.

Most PC screws are M3 I believe, worth checking before you buy but, thinking about it, at a trade outlet, you'll prob pay £2 per pack of bolts top, so you could get some M3s and M4s and it'd prob save you the money just in the time of working out which ones you need.
