EVGA GTX 295 co-op hydro copper
Hey guys, shot in the dark, but anyone know the exact screw specs of the screws used to hold the waterblock to the card? Previous owner lost the screws and well I need to buy new ones... Aside from going to a specialty fastener shop I was gonna see if anyone knows the specs to make it a little easier.

Did you get the manual with the block? All of my HK blocks had the screws listed in the manual :thumb: If they aren't listed there, I'd call the manufacturer directly.

Called EVGA already, apparently they dont have the specs... nor can they send me new ones >.< EVGA win on this mater..

i would bet m3 or m2.5 is the size you need

If you take the card to an RC Hobby shop they should be able to tell what size and should hopefully have them, RC cars use alot of similar type screws.

I'm rather surprised that EVGA isn't more helpful, I needed screws for a dual PCB 295 and although it took some doing I did get them to send me the screws.

Im going to give EVGA a call during normal weekday hours and see if I can talk to an RMA tech not just a tech support guy, I see no reason why they wouldnt atleast have specs on these screws, they are rather small though, a decent amount smaller then any waterblock or pc screws I have laying around.

I would definately try to talk to someone in RMA, as I said, it took some doing (bugging!) but they did send me a set for the 295. Also, RC hobby shop is your next best shot at finding the proper size, I was really shocked at the similarities in parts for RC cars and computer screws, this shop near me has everything including all the tiny plastic washers and such.
