Where to get long case fan screws

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've check on newegg and amazon... all I get are automatic gun cases.  And screws is a terrible word to search for.... even on this forum :P

 

I'm looking to buy the long case screws that are only threaded at the end (Not threaded for plastic, but regular fine thread), and that goes from one end to the other of a 140mm case fan screw hole.  I had 2 that came with my case, but I need 6 more.  Is there a special name for these screws???

Typically these are meant to mount radiators (long screws) - and you can get the equivalent at your local Hardware store - just google Radiator Fan screws (assuming 25mm thick fans)

 

Heres an example (threaded but they are the same size in length and numbers)

You can get them at your typical local hardware store.

I got the same screws there were listed above at my local hardware store for 3$ CAD in a pack of 20 screws.

The boxes of screws are clearly labelled, just look for the ones that says "#6-32 x *length* machine screw" on it and there should be multiple of them in various length. The ones I listed above are 1½ inch, or 38mm, which is basically what you want if you want to mount a radiation and a fan through a case, maybe with a washer or two as well.

And on the plus side, you don't have to wait for them to arrive by mail.

To put a final note on this:

 

I have gone to my local hardware store, and got some #6-32 screws and they worked just fine... 15 cents CAD... a whopping 1.38$ with taxes.

 

I've got 1 1/4 long screws (know metric screws with imperial length... that's Canada for ya 😋), I think if you get these for a radiator, 1 inch would have been better (so you don't pierce your rad)

 

In my case it didn't matter, I'm screws in the front of my Phantek case, it doesn't matter if I go 1/4 inch to far, but for your rad, it might be different.
