My Vampire came from Majsta with the old 3D printed spacers and small screws, but after uninstalling the Vampire (that mobo needed a recap) and putting it on another A600, the screw holes in the spacers became too loose and I can't use them anymore.
Now, I remember I saw a video from Kipper2k showing the screws he selected to keep the V600V2 firmly attached to the motherboard.
Anybody knows which kind of screws he used?

If the holes in the spacers is to big you can't use the same screw and you can't put a bigger one because the holes in PCB are not extensible.
You can drill spacers holes and use nuts and bolts M1.6/16mm like bolts and nuts.
You can also print this spacer.

I use both and the result:

Yes the holes are not exactly in the right place.

I bought mine on aliexpress like this on. Check the length you need (I'm not remember). You can search for "HDMI cable panel mount" on ebay also.
