Hoping I can get some help from Corsair to. Lost a thumbscrew and some socket 1155 mounting screws when I took it out to clean it frown.gif

The only real parts they sell are things like screws and washers, and then they are ridiculously expensive. You're always better off getting things like that online.

But also, the thumbscrews with the H100 are not conventional thumbscrews like you'd find securing your case's side panel or PCI cards. Their threads are on the inside - they look like this:

The part on the left goes through the motherboard from the front/top so that one end of it screws into the bracket. Then the thumbscrew screws onto the other end to hold the heatsink in place.

Perhaps this type of thumbscrew is used elsewhere, but personally I haven't seen one before and so my first port of call was Corsair themselves - and I'm very happy with their response! Always liked their stuff and the first time I had a minor problem (which wasn't at all their fault and they were under no obligation to do anything about it), this is what they do. Now I feel bad for going with a Coolermaster PSU over a Corsair and for not being to afford the 650D case I wanted...

The part on the left broke when i tried to screw it.... is there any place except corsairs store to get one? i am in europe and i bought my h100 off ebay...
