Exclamation Punctured Rad

So i was taking some fans off to clean my rad, and see how quiet it would be in pull, instead of push-pull, and compare temps... I have a modded bitfenix Shinobi with a xspc 240rx rad in the front. Well, I was putting a screw in, and went too far i guess. I use prestone coolant, so when i smelled something sweet, i knew something was wrong. Sure enough, theres a little puncture. Its not leaking quickly, but a leak is a leak. I havent turned the system on yet either. Ive got tissue paper pluggin it at the moment.. We'll see how long that holds up..

Is there any way to fix a **** up like this? Or can i just consider the rad junk, and go back to air cooling until i have the money to buy a new rad?

If i need to throw the rad out, i may need a donation 1155 cooler lol.

:curses: I wish I could leave "good enough" alone...

Edit: As I wait for the rad to get fixed....

Minus the rad, thats in a shop lmao
