I just bought new Silentium PC Corona HP RGB 120mm fans and I try to mount them to the front of my Cooler Master Masterbox E500L case. The problem is, that the screws are too thick for the holes and when I tried to use more force the brackets started to bend. I tried to look for the dimensions of the holes, so I could buy thinner ones, but without success. Any ideas?


(Photo shows how much I was able to force it in)

you dont screw it in there... you put it in the slide portion to mount the fan.
