I have a z68 mobo and i want to use it for an office PC but 2 screws with springs that hold the chipset down have vanished (no idea how and why and whatever, don't ask).
Does anybody know if i can order those from somewhere in the EU?

Googling "computer chipset spring screws" would be a good start.

Turned up quite a number of possibilities. Use what you find to refine your search criteria and go from there.

Could be that the spring screws are also used elsewhere.

For example:

https://www.ebay.com/i/193523965525?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-213727-13078-0&mkcid=2&itemid=193523965525&targetid=4580840328167961&device=c&mktype=&googleloc=&poi=&campaignid=403204656&mkgroupid=1235851284511226&rlsatarget=pla-4580840328167961&abcId=9300377&merchantid=51291&msclkid=8fdfce12a5211f7e058f914957d7184a

Details matter so pay close attention to the specs.

Do be careful about the sizes and threading....

You might ask around: family, friends, even any nearby computer stores. Someone may just happen to have and may give you the necessary and applicable screws.

Well i don't know anyone who has a desktop since i live in a small village in Alps, there are no computer stores, taking a bus to the nearest city that has a computer part store would cost even more since its a "rich area", and yes i found something similar that might be ok on ebay but the delivery costs more then a fresh z68 mobo cuz 1 is from murica and the other two sellers are from china. so yeah maybe ill just buy a "new and cheap" z68 and be done with it, thanks
