Need help finding long 6-32 screws!
 
Hey guys I recently bought a couple of TFC Xtenders and while I was going about installing it to my H70 I realized that the supplied M3 and M4 screws don't fit!

The exact size I need is 6-32x 2.5" but I haven't had any luck finding it at this length from Canadian Tire or Home Hardware.

In fact the only place I've been able to find them is on Frozen CPU, but just to ship these things would cost $20 and that's not including whatever customs fees that might incur.

6-32 x 2.5" Radiator Mount Screws - 4-Pack (55mm Fans)(CoolIt / Corsair / XSPC) - FrozenCPU.com

So yeah if anyone knows where I can find some long 6-32 screws or would sell some to me, I'd appreciate it :biggrin:

edit: grammar lol, also I'm in North York, Ontario (Yonge and Steeles)

I got my long 6-32 screws at Rona. Check there or a Home Depot near you. Also Fastenal if there's one near you.

Yeah, either Kent or Home Depot have them for sure. More than likely they'll be in a package as opposed to loose. Don't forget that you can buy them extra long and then use the screw cutting feature of a good set of wire strippers to cut them to length. The only problem with buying them in Canada is that more than likely they'll be robertson head machine screws.

edit again with your location, so can direct close store

Awesome thanks guys...totally forgot about Home Depot, but I'm going to check out Fastenal tomorrow as there's one not too far off from where I live. I checked out their website and they seem like a pretty specialized store so I'm betting they'll have some for sure. It seems most of the regular hardware stores only stock 6-32 screws up to 2" in length though, what's the deal with that? :blarg:

Fastnal FTW, cheaper then home depot or canadian tire. They also have higher grade stuff instead of the dirty leaded chinese steel deck bolts they will sell you.

Fastenal usually wants to sell you stuff in quantities..

I've sen 6x32 @ canadian tire and home depot in 3" lengths.

Nice thing about machine screws.. Buy long cut them down. its easy to thread them.

Don't tell me you've seen them that long in Peace River? I went to every hardware store in town here and couldn't find any for my 38mm fans.

I actually haven't looked in this area.. but I'm sure they are around.

I heard Fastenal out in Clairmont is supposed to be good for oddball stuff.
