RTX 2080ti strix screws and thermal pads

so I've managed to lose the screws and thermal pads for my sons RTX 2080to strix gpu after watercooling it and now he has swapped to a new case and wants the stock cooler back.

Am I able to source a new screw set and some thermal pads direct from asus or am I stuffed?

The thermal pads are easy to find, if you know what thickness they are.

The screws? it depends what they used. I doubt Asus will sell you anything like that. They're not known for being very approachable. Good luck though.

Hmm, is there a way that you can figure out the thread size of those screws? You might be able to purchase some online if you can find that out.

Just a tip for the future, screw your screws into the heatsink when you are storing it, stick the thermal pads onto it and then wrap the heatsink in cling film or something. That's what I do when I watercool.

If the screws can go back I do that. If not I just put them in a seal up baggie and masking tape it to the cooler.

Didn't think of screwing them into the cooler I just put them into a baggie with the thermal pads and put them in the box with the cooler. They went walkies at some point no idea how.

Hmmmm I was hoping Asus might be able to send me a set of screws the thermal pads don't really worry me as I can source them easily enough
