Can your force them through? If you can, they would be fine and tight.

Next down would be 6-32 or 6-40. (6 is the the gauge, 32 is the threads per inch)
Once again...

Looks cleaner, especially if you have extra thick fans like panaflo or delta.
Unless you want to mod the fan, with silverstones you have to. The holes are all encased. check out the picture, you'll see what i mean.

I can't quite force them through. More than likely i'll just take the radiator to the hardware store just to make sure. My problem is I have classes until 8:00 tonight and the good hardware store is closed then I'll get it figured out.

Thanks for telling me what the numbers ment. I was pretty sure the 32 was tpi, but i didn't know the first number was gauge.
