Need help on screws

Which of the screws here can I use to mount a rad grill and radiator along with fans

Your standard case fans are 25mm thick. For my rads, I always use 30mm to account for the grill as well. Any longer and you'll puncture into the rad. Be sure to double check while you're screwing in.

Also, you can get those M3 screws dirt cheap at your local hardware store.

I haven't been to the hardware store lol, do they come in black as well?

so I should just get some 10mm and 30mm. 10mm for the rad grill into the rad and then the 30 to be used underneath where the fans will go ?

I'd say most hardware stores will just carry the silver/grey screws... at least my local Home Depot only carries those. Nothing a can of paint can't fix though.

Hi. Depending on the radiator in question, these or these should work, provided they are long enough. We have access to many more sizees and lengths, just not everything is listed, as we don't want to clutter up the site. If you need any help, please don't hesitate to shoot me a PM. I'll do everything in my power to lend a hand.

Your local hardware store, rather than a big chain like The Depot or Lowe's, should have them in black. Bring your rad and a fan with you. That's what I did. The people there should be able to help you. I've also got them from here:
