Hi Gang

This might be a little off the norm for this secion, but I have a Thermaltake Shark PC case and I am needing some parts for it. I bought a used one and some of the parts are missing, like screws, HD mounts, etc. An ideas.?

Screws are easy, go to your local hardware store (Lowes(t) or Home Despot will suffice, but try to find an actual hardware store, their employees actually know something about "hardware")

You'll need:
6-32x0.25 (#6 screw with 32 threads per inch one quarter inch long)
M3x5 (M= Metric so they are 3mm diameter and 5mm long)

the #6's fit almost everything except the hard drives and some motherboards

the M3's fit hard drives and the remaining motherboards

(Bonus style points awarded for using black oxide and either Torx or Allen(hex) headed screws :) )

for the outside of the Case and the PSU I usually use thumb screws for ease since those are parts I'm fond of removing but they are just the #6's I listed earlier.

Chrome Thumbscrews

Black Anodized Thumbscrews

If you are missing Motherboard standoffs you'll need a set

For the Hard Drive mounts most likely you'll have to get them directly from Thermaltake but their website is currently down so I cannot get part numbers for you

I wish I had a Home Despot nearby! ;-)

Many of the parts inside a case are standard and, if you know the exact size and type of what you need, are fairly easy to come by. Newegg sells stand-offs and hard drive screws are easy to obtain as well depending on your case and/or drive cage.

You can buy screws and standoffs on newegg, I often find them on ebay. . .either that or dig through the garbage bin at your local computer store-their notorious for throwing away old computers, that have loads of good screws and other parts.
