    Quick question regarding the included wifi parts

    silly question.. but does anyone know what size the hexagon bolts are that come with the wireless card? the ones you use to attach the connectors to the back panel? I need to buy a mini wrench so I can tighten them properly but no idea how they're measured or what size they will be, and the wrench will need to be small enough to fit through all my watercooling so an adjustable large one isn't really a good idea

    I used my mechanics toolset by Craftsman with the smallest rachet, forgot what size. If you have, just grab that...Hold onto back with hand and tighten, doesn't take much. Socket is your best bet.

    would it be easier to tighten them if I remove the washers? or are they there for some kind of electronic circuit protection, grounding them or something?

    I used all the included parts, as I said, doesn't take much force, and don't over-do it.

    I am attaching custom antenna to them and with the card in the way right below where they screw it's hard even for my small fingers to turn it with any strength, so when I move the antenna around they become loose, so I need to know the size so I can get a wrench and tighten it hard

    I don't know the exact size of the bolts but if you need a tool to aid you in tightening them, you could probably use a long nose plier to twist them in.
