  1. Screws too big for holes!!!

    Hello everybody, I have an issue with my brand new Hyper 212x. I have a prebuild Lenovo y700-34ish with a socket LGA 1151. The problem is that the screws that i have to mount the cooler do not fit in the mobo. They are too big for the holes the mobo has. Is this natural? I did not even know that there is another requirement other than the socket and dimensions i had to look up to. Does anybody have a solution? Maybe buy some other screws from somewhere? Thank you for your answers.
  2. Where can I buy spare parts?

    The CM USA online store is down. Does anyone know where spare parts can be purchased until the online store is back up? I tried calling Cooler Master and they don't answer their phones or respond to their voicemails.
  3. Additional Screws #6-32

    Has anyone found additional #6-32 flat head screws anywhere online? I could use some more. I am modding my case and the screws with the low profile heads seem to be rather custom.
  4. How does a 28mm fan screw, ( thread tip to scew head ) attatch a 28mm thick fan and your 1mm thick grommet into one of your radiators? I only just see the screw thread while inside the fan, but the grommet means that I would need to squash the fan by at least 5mm to attatch each screw! Am I supposed to cut off the rubber ontop of the fan? But then what happend if I want to change to a push pull and I have already hacked the fans to bits. I have tried forcing the thick head of the screw into the rubber but then the screw no longer turns. The screw is not long enough to go through the fan!
  5. All the things I need (good airflow and ATX + long GPU support) with the least things I don't want (leds and acrylic windows), but it is giving me so many problems... Bought it on August 20th (but waited til September 6th for all the components to arrive at the shop for a single trip), once I started installing (following the manual) I hit the... First problem, the screws don't fit! The manual says to use the M3*5 screws (small round head screw) to hold the MB in place, problem is, it really doesn't fit. So, thinking I needed to use a little force (this is my first build) I ended with: The screw won't move anymore, any atempt will simply make it rotate with the standoff, speaking of it, I tried to hold it down using a pliers... bad idea: Will probably need a small spanner to get that thing off now. The M3*5 screws supplied with the case are totally useless, as they can't be used to hold the MB nor install drives. Ended using the flatheads for the HDD and hex shaped for the MB and SSD. Second problem, using an ATX MB, the SATA connectors have part of it obstructed by the case (looking from the front of the case, you can see the MB placed a little deeper to the right), the cables don't have a straight access to the SATA ports and become a extremely tight fit, stressing the MB ports up: Probably can be fixed by using a pair of left angle sata cables, but I'm not sure, it seems it's the connector body that is placing pressure against the case, not the cable itself. Will probably try to sand it down... Third problem, trying to register it under "My Products" results in a "Invalid Serial" error: I tried supplying the serial located in the back of the case, small sticker with a serial string and barcode, but the system doesn't accept it. But overall, the case is very nice, just these issues bugging me... aargh So, any help or advice?
