Solved!

Z400: What's the screw that fastens the frame to the case?

HP Recommended
Z400

I'm trying to disassemble a Z400 case so that I can access the sheet hosting the motherboard tray. I got most screws undone except 4 of them at the four corners, circled in the following picture. They look like they are Torx screws. The smallest bit I have is a T10, which doesn't fit. Does anyone know the exact size of them? I hate to go out and buy a tool just to find it doesn't fit. Thanks!

A CR-VT-8 star bit WILL work. I'm thinking that a #8 Torx is what you really want.

Thanks! They are indeed T8 screws. After I got them out, I replaced them with philip screws. Fortunately the threads are standard 6-32.
