Hi,

 

I just want to know if m3 35mm screws work like for long fan radiator screws. I need slightly longer screws to mount the fan to radiator.

Normally those are imperial rubbish.

You can install metric screws into imperial threads but that will damage it and is far from ideal.

But will it work?

Probably but is it worth destroying the screw thread?

The right one would be a UNC 6-32.

If you are unsure about length order the longer version and cut it down to size if needed.
