apogee screw size?

hi

im trying to find out what size are the screws in the old apogee.

the 4 screws that goes from the top, pass the hold down plate, pass the housing and into the copper.

im ordering some new scews and bits later, and remember i've rounded one of them so i couldnt take the block apart...

it'll be great is someone know before i have to take the loop apart....

thanks.

Although saying that they are made in the states and on that particular block is has 1/4" NPSM threads rather than the G1/4" we all know and love.

Could be a strange american size thread bud...... i would give M3 a go though first!

Think Robs spot on, most bolts on watercooling seem to be M3

They won't sell to us Direct mate, god knows why but i know a few retailers who have had the same problems going direct with them..

We certainly can get Swiftech gear, but with it being from a Distributor or even a Reseller i may be shooting myself in the foot to compete on prices.

I think the only peeps in the UK who they sell direct to are SpecialTech and Over-Clock but i could be wrong!

All swiftech stuff is via distro - which does limit there sales some what.
