No the thread wasn't stripped but the hole had expanded slightly. I got my case from a hardware reviewer so it had been taken apart before I got it and I think they had either put the wrong screw in the hole first or not put the screw in straight, which distorted the hole slightly. It was very easy to reshape it with the tip of the pliers. I noticed when I first got the case that they had not tightened the screws up fully so the panels were a little loose which I was pleased with as small threads are very easily stripped if you are heavy handed with a screwdriver.

I thought of looking for some of those clips you mentioned, in the UK they are known as 'Spire Nuts' but they need to be used with different type of screws that have a course thread like self tapping screws, also I am not aware if they make them for such small screws.

Because money. Why include an accessory when you can charge for it?

Is that a SLI/Xfire Support bracker?

The case comes with a rubber sticker to put on top of the drive cage which provides support for one GPU (was nice for my 6990) but mine didn't come with that bracket either.

Hi Indigo

It appears that Spire Nuts and Speed clips are the same. Just a different name dependent on which country they are purchased. Yes, they usually take a self tapping type screw but fortunately I had one in stock that was just the right size for the original 3mm screw to be re used. I had the top off a couple of times later and it goes through by a couple of threads and still grips and tightens fine.

Cheers

It's only a minor problem really and most people would be satisfied with a simple repair like that but I feel it's a design flaw as those threads really ought to be more substantial in the first place. I am sure that if I remove and replace to top cover a couple more times then I am going to need to either get some spire nuts or hexagon nuts that fit which really lets the case down in my opinion. One problem with spire nuts is that they are made from a very hard metal alloy which is harder than the material the screws are made from and have a different thread pitch so each time you put the screw in and take it out it will damage the thread, this will mean you will have to replace the screws in time too.

It's not a deal breaker and I wouldn't choose a different case just over this issue but it would be nice if Silverstone had put a little more thought into this minor flaw. Thicker metal in that area would help a lot but captive nuts would be perfect and not expensive. I wish Silverstone would offer an updated top cover, maybe as an exchange item (return your old one with damaged threads for reduced price), I would definitely get one and it would also show that Silverstone respects their customers.
