I have a question. I upgraded my rig and sent the old parts off to my mom to help reduce the costs of replacing her 10y old pc. Id run a H70 which did not require the stock bracket. Over the years id missplaced the screws to hold the front mount to the backplate and it has caused issues when she when to complete her build and could not attach the bracket as its needed to mount the new H80 she purchased to cool the cpu.
As a short term solution she has used zipstraps to attach the bracket by using the "knuckle" end as the screw head and pulled the rest of the zipstrap through the mobo and backplate. The other end coming through the backplate has a second zipstrap slid onto it as a locker and repeated it on the remaing three corners. It is working well for now keeping her oc 1055t (4ghz) at 20c idle and 24c load but she is hoping for a proper mounting applications and would like to buy the screws to replace the zipstraps with.
Does anyone know the thread size of the screws so she can go to Home Depot and purchase the proper screws for replacing the zipstraps with.
Thanks for the help all, hope we can figure this out soon.
