Z790-F m.2 heatsink screws

Retired
Not applicable

Does anyone know what size the screws used to hold the m.2 heatsink on are?

I somewhat damaged the head of one of the screws while screwing in and was wondering if I could get a replacement screw or two from ebay or somewhere.

Thanks!

I don't know, but if you look at the way threads are defined on the internet, you can probably work out the thread pitch by counting them over a known distance. It's probably a standard metric thread anyway. Then measure the threaded part width to determine if it's M2, M3, M4 etc. Then measure the length of the threaded part and you can probably find something similar on eBay with an equivalent head. I don't think it will be too critical, so something close should do. 

Otherwise, Asus support might be able to tell you, or maybe even send a couple of replacements. Good luck.
