Overlooked the fact that i would need regular old fan screws and also 30mm fan screws for my 9x 25mm fans for this hardline watercooling build, found the 30mm ones at techworld in stock but what about regular fan screws i cant find any in the country, or am i having a "man look"?

If you are after particular screws (M3 or M4 Button Head Hex), I brought my screws off ebay.com.au from a Chinese company/manufacture, it was pretty cheap and got free shipping, downside is it takes a couple of weeks to get here.

I use ebay to get particular lengths screws, qty, colour type (I prefer matte black in my builds) and different head type depending on my needs. You will find it hard to try and find the exact screws you are after in hardware stores and if you do you tend to pay a lot more for them as well, in my own opinion.


Worth taking a look at if you are not in a hurry for your screws.

Hardware stores (like Mitre 10) cost a lot more. Even computer stores will be expensive. If you want to buy locally, I'd suggest you try somewhere like Blacks Fasteners – I couldn't guarantee about elsewhere in the country, but my local store seems fine doing retail cash sales. And they're not that much more expensive than buying from China, and are actually cheaper if you want less than 20 or so.


Is there anything special about fan screws? I'm guessing they're just countersink M3, M4 or 6-32 machine screws of an appropriate length.
