I know atleast 2 fit into my current computer's screws, but either those screws are attached with solder or something, or it's just slipping round, as the screws refused to come undone. Here's what I got:

Some screws can be in there pretty good. If the screw is big enough, just use a "normal" driver for some more torque. Those little drivers can be tough to grip sometimes. You actually don't need a mini set like that for over 90% of the stuff in a case.

I actually have this Stanley set that I think I got at Walmart. They're fatter and have rubber or whatever it is for grip. Those and a good normal-sized multi will get you through anything in there.

I read something about the new version not having plexiglass on the front of the case. You may can check Walmart to see if they have any of the "old" version. Or it may not matter to you at all. It isn't a big deal really. Just sayin.

Just use a size 2 Phillips. Most, if not all, screws used in building computers are Phillips.
