wytnyt Posted January 12, 2014 Share Posted January 12, 2014 Ok, I've been building computers since 1994 (my first was a 486DX2-66 with 4 Megabytes (not Gigabytes mind you) of RAM and a 128 Megabyte HD. Don't talk to me about "overtightening" screws or not knowing how to install things. I installed a H80i and had to remove it 3 times for various reasons. After the 2nd removal, 2 screw holes in the radiator were no longer accepting of the default screws and after the 3rd removal, a 3rd screw hole was stripped. I'm almost thankful the pump has failed (rpm of ~300 max) and so Corsair has accepted an RMA on the unit. Corsair, you need to discuss this issue with your manufacturer. being that the sheet metal on a radiator is so thin there can only be a small amount of threads for the screw to thread in,care must be taken when inserting the screws. quite frankly and no offense but you answered your own question by stating they tightened twice properly so obviously there were sufficient threads initially. these screws are very small and can very easily be over tightened even by a trained installer so dont feel bad as anyone can do this Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
