Be very carful using Cyanoacrylate adhesives on plastics, it can attack some plastics causing them to become very brittle and break easily. There are specific formulas of Cyanoacrylate adhesives that are plastic safe.

The original cyanoacrylates were developed early on in WW twice to fabricate clear gun sights on fighter aircraft.

That is a good add on Gary and me I always keep a bottle of acetone in the computer room in a large 1 litre container and some in a small eye dropper bottle for such occasions.
NB It is also good for cleaning those stubborn stains from whiteboards

Nice 1 Gary!
I had a similar issue with the H50. When trying to screw in the screws they kept lifting out of the back plate while i was trying to screw them in so would just keep turning..

Thanks Ryan. For installing the screws I don't put any down pressure on them thinking I might push the grommets out. I didn't use the glues foam pads to hold the backplate on either, that stuff is nearly impossible to take off.

Yeah I used the sticky pads on my first build and they were a right royal pita to remove off the back of my mobo. Luckilly the H100 uses the stock back plate so you don't get that problem. I found the easiest way to remove those sticky pad's from any surface is to just rub them with your thumb. Just keep pushing them in the same direction and the whole thing just roll's up

Gary mate the thermal compound remover form Arctic Silver will loosen that muck and I think you will find any manufacturer that produces a product containing orange oil (they extract it from the skins). Also if you are very careful acetone will rip it off too. I use stuff at work that we use for removing sticking plasters with - painlessly that does this too. In fact any oil left on for a while while eat into the goo

I just know I shall get a hiding to nothing for this but hey I'm used to it LOL!!

My problem was getting the backplate loose to get to the foam pads, after that it was easy.
