Watercooler Configuration Question

I recently built a new gaming PC. Because of case limitations I had to either put the fans on the top or bottom of the radiator with one side above the actual internal of the case. I put the fans on top with a pull up configuration.
I would like to make sure I didn't need to use the washers in the long screws that I put through the fans and into the radiator.
The H115i I installed came with short screws and washers that were supposed to be used in unison. I just want to make sure I am good not using them because I didn't use that set of screws.

Also the case is the Be Quiet Pro 900. I could've moved the motherboard housing down, but that was a pain and I didn't feel like doing it.

  1. You don't technically "need" to use washers but they do help to tighten down properly. If everything's in place then i guess don't worry about it.

    You can also go to a home hardware store to get different screws etc if needed to do a better job of mounting.

    Ideally you want the fans to blow THROUGH the radiator as that's more efficient.

  2. You're fine. It's not going to hurt anything not having them in there. I prefer to use plastic / rubber washers on radiator mounts to reduce vibration.
