    I need help finding black pc screws

    I would like large box of black pc screws that are labelled. I've searched on amazon but can't seem to find any that are decent. Any help would be great.

    Re: I need help finding black pc screws

    I read it as a tray with them sorted and labelled. similar to the packs you get for woodscrews. If he means stencilled/embossed on the screw, I wouldn't think an M3 has enough space? If there was they'd have shoved RGB LEDs on it by now

    Re: I need help finding black pc screws

    I just would it it seperated out it doesn't need to be engraved on each screw but atleast bagged with each bag labelled.

    Ideally I would like something like the second link but all black screws. Its odd that every case comes with it but no ones seem to have thought to make an assortment of them.

    There are packets of screws/bolts on E bay so you could make up your own selection.

    132pcs Personal Computer PC Screw Standoff Kit Set For Motherboard Fan SSD HDD - £7.99 (ships from China)

    Alternatively search AliExpess for each srew type/size and order a bag worth of each. As for storing them, I use Raaco adjustable storage boxes and old pickled gherkin jars for keeping things tidy.

    More than enough compartments for the screws/bolts you would need for most system builds!

    Re: I need help finding black pc screws

    PC screws only come in a couple of types, and they're really easy to distinguish just by looking at them. Doesn't answer your question, but might provide a workaround. I put the 6-32 (bigger) screws in a different plastic bag to the M3 screws, but it's no great deal if they get mixed up.

    M3 screws fall out of the 6-32 slots, and the otherway round doesn't really fit, so it's obvious.

    Re: I need help finding black pc screws

    In case you need some more these look like a proper bargain.

    SET OF 3 TACTIX INTERLOCKING STORAGE BOXES - £3 instore @ Homebase

    Might be worth popping in-store just to see what else they are flogging cheaply.
