    So i got a new macpro, and i installed 3 drives in the remaining three bays and i wanted to replace the stock/factory drive withi my own, however the screws were badly stripped like the installed had a bad time trying to get it in there properly lol.

    im wondering if theres anyplace to pick up some replacement screws for the 2008 MP models. called apple said they dont have those in stock to just ship out.

    Googled "Mac Pro Parts" and found this. I hope that's what you are looking for.

    Granted, it's a 4 pk., but $17.77/4 = $4.44 per screw! :eek: Are they serious?

    You DON'T have to buy Apple spares, the HD's screws used are of a standard size M3x8mm Pan Head Philips (though they don't have to be "pan head" but they would fit better!!
