Screw preference for gpu backplates

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Ive got some screws for backplates and im unsure which to use. I have silver panheads that sit flush or black ones that sit in a bevelled hole but since the cutters cant step the holes they stick out slighty.
I know the silver ones do this but they sit flush.
What option do you say to go for

i prefer flush fitting screws. you could either paint them to match in black or just use a sharpy if you dont mind. either way i'd go for the flush look.

i thought he typed beveled hole. so i dont think either of those would apply, but we'll see how the OP says.

That's kind of what I'm asking/waiting for.

I would always go for screws that sit flat on the surface, and silver always look good on black as long as you keep all of them in the same colour. I would go with something like these if you are going to use tehm on a backplate http://www.westfieldfasteners.co.uk/A2_ScrewBolt_SHCap_M3.html. I used some similar ones to fit the backplate on my 7950, and personally I think they look great.
