I have no idea how you lost your screws with springs, but check your manual and see if they mention anything about the size of the screws.

Well that is sucky. I wouldn't recommend going to a Hardware Store to try and furnish a solution, sure the spring might fit, but what's the right tension in the spring? That's something that is factory tested to a "T". I would hate for you to do that and then SPROING, your friggen heatsink/fan flies off mid game.

IMO, try calling gigabyte and seeing if you can order that part. Even if it's a few bucks, better than buying a new card and better than wondering if an outside solution is safe.

Or just buy an aftermarket HSF like a Zalman VF900 which comes with screws and is a lot better than the original.
