Screws lost holding the PCB of the Akitio Thunder2, where to find replacement?

Hi everyone,

Back in 2015 I bought a Thunder2 and removed the Thunderbolt controller and put it into a Mini-ITX case to house a bigger GPU.
But since there are smaller GPUs now that fit in the original Thunder2 case I decided that I wanted to get a smaller GPU that fits as my next GPU. 
Problem now is that I can't find the screws that hold the PCB in the Thunder2 case anymore. So does anyone know where to get the replacement screws?

Any help is appreciated!

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

I want to say that they're just short M5 size machine screws but I'd have to check to make sure.

Edit:
Ok I checked and it looks like #4-40 screws (metric M3x0.5) were the ones that worked for me.
