Raystorm PRO with no instructions

Hi everyone,

Just got back from Microcenter with my new Aorus Master Z390!

I also received from Amazon an XSPC Raystorm Pro. The only problem is that for whatever reason, no instructions were included.

I found the manual online:
https://static1.squarespace.com/stat...-pro-intel.pdf

In step 4, it says to screw the posts directly against the motherboard without using any of the included nylon washers. My motherboard has a bunch of traces right next to most H/S holes, there's no way in hell I'm rubbing them with metal.

I haven't installed the block yet but I did screw in the posts with nylon washers in between. I attached a picture, let me know your thoughts. It does elevate the posts by 1mm approximately.

Thanks

I have raystorm pro for AM4, I don't recall I put nylon washer on those 4 holes, ill double check. but its good to be safe, nylon washer doesn't hurt anything, so should be fine.

the nylon washers are SOP for pegs on most blocks. They're to prevent any sort of conduction/shorting issues.

Thanks for the replies. I built my PC with the washers placed like in the picture, no issues at all and at least I'm not scratching the board. Temps are great with a pretty tight spread across all cores.

scratching and warping boards are greatly over stated.

I used to remove stock back plates & strap dynatron 1u CPU coolers on instead, using nothing but washers, nuts, & bolts. never scratched, cracked, arced, or warped a thing.

glad you got it sorted.
