Cooler Master Sniper Broke Stanoffs and Stripped Screws
so i know im an idiot, and i used the wrong screws and i broke most of my stand offs and stripped alot of my motherboard screws, would my best option be doing a "part request" through the cooler master website, i think its still under warranty because i only got it about 4 months ago, or would a beter option be to buy a acessory kit for a different cooler master case?
thanks for all the help

I would imagine you could pay Cooler Master for new ones. I personally wouldnt claim warranty as you broke them though.Should I R0 my SSD? / Sandy/Ivybridge Overclocking Guide / Haswell Overclocking Guide / AMD Overclocking Guide / Power Supply Guide

You could buy the accessory kit, or you could look at your back plane holes to determine fine or course thread and order a hardware kit that all the sites seem to carry.
I just ordered a small one for $6 cause I'm building a new case from scratch.
I'm with EarthDog on the warranty thing...user caused warranty claims cost us all. It might even cost you shipping the case both ways if they turn it down...Rig1: C2D E8400 @3510 Ф Asus P5G41T-M-LX Plus mobo Ф 8 Gigs Ballistix DDR3 1333 Ф Asus GT520 Silent Ф 4 Deep Cool 92mm case fans Ф FSP 1U 460 Watt PSUExternal Watercooling: QP-320-Res w/Gentle Typhoon's and metal screen filters Ф Cooling modded MCP350 & MCP355 W/Swiftech white dual pump top Ф D-Tek Fuzion V2 Ф 1/4" Norprene tubing

When I damaged my standoffs I had new ones and just epoxied them to the mobo tray. No retapping needed
