R2308GZ4GC/S2600GZ top cover screws

I've started wearing out the heads of some of the screws used to secure the top cover. What kind of screws are used there? I tried taking one to a shop specializing in screws, but they didn't have anything like it. The screws are about 6mm long including the head, 3mm across (diameter) and 5mm across the head (diameter) with a 0.8mm pitch.

Hello nomorries,

Thank you for contacting us,

First of all, I need to mention that this product is already discontinued, meaning it is out of support and information might not be up-to-date, however, here is some information I found online.

 

The server https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/r2000gz-gl/sb/R2000GZ_... Intel® Server System R2000GZ/GL Product Family Quick Installation User's Guide, scrolling down to page two you can find a quick guide on how to remove the top cover, something like this:

If you are seeing something different. Please share some pictures with us to have a better idea of what you are dealing with.

Best regards,

I want to know what screw that's used in the "Remove the Top Cover" illustration, so I can buy some replacements. It looks like this.
