Most likely it's fine, but can cause uneven pressure and therefore uneven cooling performance (e.g. one core could be seeing higher temps).

 

You can use any nut, that has same diameter and thread size (looks like M4 screw maybe, don't quote me on that). I'm quite sure it's not some proprietary size, so you can find a suitable nut in any hardware store. But finding same nut as the others are, that might be a bit more difficult, not sure how easy they are to find.

You will not be able to find these particular nuts at a store, but you can find the thread for the backplate.

I can't tell if this is on an AMD or an Intel platform, and they use different threads.

 

Its very easy to jerry rig a CPU cooler. My CPU waterblock for my custom loop arrived with shitty threads on the posts, so I made my own. All it takes is the same thread as the backplate.


Cheers.

I can find them online, aliexpress etc, but what they are actually called. These nuts are same which are used in AIO from corsair.

Not of the top of my head. Or without knowing if you are on intel or amd.

 

Of course, if you bought it new, you should just be able to email NZXT support and ask for another nut.

Worst case scenario they make you pay a dollar or two for shipping.

Its intel, apologies for not telling it before. Yes i'll email them, in the meantime if anyone could tell me the name of nut would be alot helpful.

If it was AMD I could tell you it off the top of my head. I don't know the intel one.

 

Just take the nut you have to your local hardware store and look for a matching thread. Shouldn't be that hard. I had to do that.

Your best bet would be to contact NZXT for a replacement set. If you want to just run to the hardware store or ideally a fastener supply house you can use just a regular Hex nut with the same threading, it should be 6-32 thread for those.For something similar look for a thumb screw nut they will have a variety of them, as long as the thread is correct it will work. 

 

For example:

Great idea, just wondering if one missing nut wouldn't cause any issue in cooling?

It won't apply pressure evenly and will affect it's cooling performance.
