XIGMATEK 140MM Screw Issue

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am trying to install these 140mm fans to my case on the top. But the fan screw holes don't seem to be grooved and I can't tighten the screws at all for the fan to be secure. I used the NZXT M59 fan screws for the 120mm intake fan since they were long. But these screws, the XIGMATEK ones, don't really work. Some help?

Should I just call NZXT for some extra case fans? The XIGMATEK ones blow

Most fans don't have grooved holes... Those Xigmatek fans are good, you just don't know how to screw in a fan properly. Push up on the side of the fan where you want your first screw to put pressure on it so the screw will go in. Then take the side diagonal from the first screw for your next screw and repeat. Some fans are hard to screw in but you will eventually be able get them in.

I'll try. They are damn tough, tough enough that I have to use a flat head since I don't want to strip it.
