Corsair Watercooler H60 lack of screws
Here is the problem, because of the lack of screws supplied with the H60 I was a limited in how I could attach it to the HAF XM case I have. Ideally I wanted it attached to the top of the case but the standard screws I had were just not long enough. I thought of putting the fan on the top but then the four pin connector to the motherboard got in the way.
I was a bit cheesed off and not really happy with the way that I had to put the cooler into the case and it kept on bugging me. I was looking through the bags of various screws I have and I had a weird thought. It looked like the brass motherboard spacers had the right thread. So I unmounted the H60 and tried them out. Lo and behold they fit! Unfortunately the brass spacers went through the cutouts for the screw holes at the top of the case. The cure for this was two washers to each brass spacer, one between the spacer and the top of the case and another one on top of the case to prevent the screw from going through.
So a big one finger salute (or if you prefer, a digital representation of binary four) to Corsair, I got it where I wanted it in spite of them.
Would it kill them to add a few more screws just to make mounting the radiator a bit more flexible?
