Could probably use the stock screws from the MB, would just need to check the length.You can probably get away with using just 6-32 screws (without M4 threading) if you get some 6-32 nuts.
As far as I can see in the manual, there is acutally no M4 threading in the mounting plate. The M4 threading seems to be just for the nuts. A 6-32 screw/threading is a bit smaller, so the block wont be fixed as tight as with M4 screws, but it will probably be held in place by the mounting pressure just fine.
one option is to tension them up with a torque wrench(i think my 1/2 one for head bolts might be a bit big though lol) and then remove and check the TIM spread, and note it down, get an idea of the ideal torque required then torque the screws up to that setting?
I think I will try and replicate that Ghost setup on mine with the slimmer Rad, and shorter extensions out of the block, he had a fair bit of clearance around the screws with the 10mm extensions, perhaps some of these at 8mm
