M17X R3 heatsink screw size?

Recommended Posts

I need to replace the screws on a m17x r3 heatsink. I found a site that has screws but I don't know the exact measurement of the screw. Anybody happen to know and can help me out?

Thanks a bunch!

I've bought a pack of screws from China and found ones that fit perfect.

that does not meet the definition of "useful"!

Not helpful unfortunately. Purchased a set of different sized screws off eBay a couple days after posting this. Didn't work as all of them have heads that are too small.

Well, it worked for me. I got the pack and found screws that fit with heads. They are not as original, but hey, they do their job - which is to hold the heatsink in the place. Works for me.

Have you managed to secure it?

Oh I was criticizing your method. 😏

No, I haven't been able to find any screws to fit. I was close but the head of it was just a bit too small. I'm honestly about to find a tiny washer to fill in the spot I need. I don't know if that will harm it though.
