HELP! My EK-FC Terminal X2 S 3-slot needs longer screws!
I'm really disappointed. I tore apart my RTX2080ti's and installed all my EKWB coolers and backplates. I then installed them in my machine and took off the old terminals to install the EK-FC Terminal X2 s 3-slot arcylic component.
I could NOT get the screws to work...and then I sadly discovered that only ONE screw that I removed form the old terminals was the right length. The other five are no longer than the plexiglass elemetn is fully in width.
i'm dead in the water!!!!! EKWB, are you listening?!?!?!?!? I'm not sure where the long screw in the photo above came from, maybe as a spare in the terminal? At any rate, when I measure the length of the threaded portions of six screws that I'm supposed to reuse, they measure 21mm in length. Including the heads they measure about 23 mm in total length. The thickness of the plexiglass or acrylic unit measures 23 mm...so there's NO way that the existing screws can be used as they recess only about 3mm into the plexiglass.
It's really a difficult situation for me because I had a LOT of work I needed to get done this weekend, as a holiday weekend in USA...and now I'm sunk unless I put all the fan cooling back together on my RTX2080's...and that doesn't make ANY sense at this point.
