    Let me guess, you took the cooler off to put decent Thermal compound on , and the kids found the screws?
    anywho, a couple ideas. Go to your local hardware store with GPU in hand and go down the screw and bolt ect isle (the one with all them drawers) in the machine screw section, you should find some that will work. next if you live anywhere by a Micro center, they have a good section with DIY hardware and screws.
    Next, check out Frozencpu.com accessory section. you can call them, if they don't have them, they will be able to order them, or aim you in the right direction...tell'em Greg sent ya (kidding)
    You can try these guys...I have yet to stump them (and I order some esoteric pieces)

    Hope one of them helps.

    For very tiny metric screws, you can also try a local hobby shop, particularly one that deals in RC cars and RC aircraft.
