Default Fan Screws?

hello, I was just wondering if anyone knows whether newegg sells fan screws, not the thumb screws but just normal ones that "usually" come with fans. I could not find them which is a shame because I was going to buy some other stuff from them as well, hoped to save on shipping.

Probably not, they usually don't sell just one part of a whole product.

IMO your best bet would be like an Ace hardware.

Radio Shack. I got a nice hardware kit from there for $5. Fan Screws, case screws, brass mobo mounts and all sorts of things.

Go down a decent hardware (diy) store with an example screw and they should be able to match it if Maks solution doesn't work out.

Thanks for the advise, Ill have to keep an eye out for a kit like that next time im there. Its strange newegg doesn't sell them, they sell a lot of fans that don't come with any screws so most my fans are held on with zip ties.

I usually only put 2 screws in each fan. 4 isn't really necessary, it's not gonna fall out.

I have a jar full of fan screws that way. I also salvage them from old PC's and PSU's.
