Hey guys, I'm having trouble with the front fan mounts for the Corsair 300R. The mounting holes are too small for the screws I have and I seem to have lost the ones the case came with for the front mount (it's been over a year and replacing fans). 
It seems the ones it came with were long (30mm?) and thin (thinner than standard 6-32?). Is there anywhere I can get more of these screws or am I just SOL? I have checked all the corsair accessories and I haven't seen any of the screws I need. Anyone know where to get some replacement ones?

I have found this as I am not sure what you have seen when you checked all the corsair accessories:


http://www.corsair.com/en-us/carbide-300r-accessory-kit  - It is hard to see, but there looks to be longer screws in the package.


I also have found a forum here: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=131899

that says:


Fans normally use screws designed specifically for fans but, in a pinch, you usually can get by with #6 sheet metal screws. The length of the screw and the type of head will depend on where you are mounting the fan.


Hope this helps, or at least puts you on the right track!


Edit: I also found this on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Carbide-300R-Accessory-Product/dp/B00V5HSPD6/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1462770333&sr=8-10&keywords=corsair+300r+accessories

It is a bit expensive just for the screws... but these may be the screws you are looking for.
