My System Specs

Default A shot in the dark

Ok, so I'm hoping someone can help me out here, I'll try and make a long story short, I am in need of 26 GPU heatsink screws, the 2mm ones with tiny springs. I've exchanged emails with an EVGA rep who basically called me a liar, I sent him pics of the screws in question (which were from a current EVGA card) and he sent me back a pic of ones with no springs saying they didn't use the ones I showed him. When I replied back telling him the pic I sent were from an EVGA card he didn't even bother to reply back! I've tried looking in a few places like hobby stores etc but so far no luck. If anyone out there (watercooling members) happens to have any laying around that they can spare PLEASE PM me. I am going to follow it up further with EVGA and would gladly send replacements when I get them from EVGA or whatever other source can supply them but I am in need of these in a hurry so your help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance

To be honest gingerbee I've had VERY good experiences with EVGA in the past, they have been by far and away the best customer service I've dealt with to date, and I've dealt with MANY!...lol...that said, I think I just got the wrong person this time around and he dismissed me as some moron who didn't know what he was talking about. Thats ok though, it does happen and I will have some choices comments to make with EVGA regarding this person.

Anyhow, to get back on topic, here is pic of what I'm after, if you or anyone else can help me out I'd really appreciate it .....sorry for the bad pic

Every NVIDIA AIB used those on their 8800 series through 200 series for the reference cards. Period.

I know SKY, thats why the "gentleman" I spoke to at EVGA has me pissed off, he obviously doesn't know his own product so now I need to get someone on the phone who won't talk to me like I'm an idiot!...lol (last reply for the day..promise!...lol)
