VID-NX680 Screw Size and Thread Gap

Postby VirtualJealousy » Sat Dec 29, 2012 9:53 am

Does anyone know the size and thread gap of the mounting screws that come with the VID-NX680 gpu block? I recently purchased 2 of these for my EVGA GTX680 SC cards and the screws provided aren't long enough to work with the EVGA Backplate. I was able to get all but one to barely screw in, but would prefer to get some longer screws to make sure the blocks are securely mounted. I searched the boards and Koolance's product detail pages, but can't find any specs on the mounting screws.

Just a follow up for anyone else having this problem. After trial and error I was able to find 2.5mm machine screws that fit the block.

Thank you for the information

The thread pitch is the M2.5?
I also block Koolance GTX680, and EVGA with Backplate, and for 2 screws the width of the head of the screw is too large (does not fit into the hole in the BP)
I'm looking for the same screw with a head less wide

Thanks
sorry for my english :D

I finally found out that the 2.6mm screws are the ones and I ordered them.

Now I just have to worry about the screws that mount the backplate, but I will cross that bridge when
I get there. At least I will be able to mount the VID-NX680 WC Block to my card soon.

I was so worried about screw size and so many issues and it turns out that the stock
screws that came on the orig back plate were fine. The only ones I did not
use were the 4 main gpu that the water block does not get a pad, I used the
washer and screws that came stock with the NX680.

My temps were cut in half on my GPU's and I am very happy now !!!!
