    What rad screws do you keep on hand?

    I'll be building a new rig soon in something like a caselabs M8. Those things can hold a rediculus amount of radiators, I was just wondering what screws I should get to keep "on hand" if you will.... I don't mind going and buying too many, mcmaster sells most screws in packs of 100 for $7 or...
