The original Compaqs used Torx for damn near everything.

The PC (not "ANY PC", but 5150) uses Torx screws on the power supply.
"Security" Torx even! (with a tiny post up the middle)

Boring a hole up the middle of Torx bits wasn't especially easy.
Yes, I can remove those screws without the correct bit.
But I do not damage fasteners in non-emergency situations.
