    Default Finding Screws For Antec H2o 920 Cooler?

    Hello Guys,

    Some help would really be appreciated please please .

    I borrowed a friend my antec h2o 920 cooler to test it out, but he ... unfortunatley lost the screws that holds the fans and rad to the pc.

    I've tried getting replacements at builders, robot, but they don't have anything. I've even chanced it at the computer shops near us, but as you guessed it, they don't have anything.

    Do anyone of you owning this cooler, know where I might get the screws from?

    Thanks in advance,

    Regards,

    I noticed they are a funny size, probably imperial. Acorn fasteners in Centurion are likely to have them, but it might be a bit far for you...

    Another option is to tap them one size bigger.

    Most pc review sites say that you can find them at hardware stores. I'm prone to agree, as screws generally subscribe to a standard. I've definitely seen the ones on my Corsair WC (Same manufacturer therefore probably same screws) at hardware stores before. Maybe take a look at Mica or some other hardware stores?

    You might have trouble finding them locally if they have imperial threads. This guide to PC case screws may help to identify the type of thread ...

    Hi guys,

    @p924, not sure what you mean when you say:
    "Another option is to tap them one size bigger."
    Thanks for telling me of Acorn fasteners, will probably have to go there since I can't find anything where I am. Yep, they are imperial.

    @froot, thanks for the reply,
    Have tried going to Mica, builders warehouse, robot hardware as well as special tools but nothing of the type I'm looking for.

    @yotch,
    yay, if I don't find anything, then I guess I have to try contact antec.

    Thanks all for the replies thus far.

    Regards,

    According to these links you are presumably looking for 6-32 screws. Apparently Boltfast (Acorn?) may be able to help - just measure the shaft length and decide on the type of head that you require. Telephone first to make sure that they sell something suitable.

    Holy crap, it's only a few screws. Improvise.
