picked up some fan screws on ebay, too small?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
wasted 6 bucks on 50 of these. but just got them but turned out too small?

further research showes that modern fan takes 5.5mm screws. i got these are 4mm. ***. why?

i got 25 120mm fans and need screws and got these and junk.

what's the 4mm for?

got 100 of 5mm screws off ebay for 6 bucks all painted black. these ones works. so problem solved.

crappy 4mm. so yeah always bigg is better. too small won't fit and too big just make the hole bigger.
