I wanna make a central hold down for my waterblock. I'm gonna search for spring to use and would like to know how strong a spring I can get. How many lbs should it be?
You might be able to send an email to Dan over at DangerDen as he has a hold down that uses the socket lugs for the maze1C that uses a central spring for tension. I would guess that he'd tell you what spring rate to use.
Yeah, but he's a busy guy so I wouldn't want to bother him with this unless I can't get any answers at the forums.
