Screw them down with a tool but don't over do it otherwise you might cause your mobo to bend or even break.
Also screw them down in a diagonal order. If the screws are

A---------B
| ---------|
|--------- |
C---------D

Then screw A then D then B then C to create equal pressure on the CPU.

I would hand tighten them. You reduce any chance of cracking mobo that way, and you can get them plenty tight enough.

Tightent them until there is no movement between the board and the fan. Once it feels secure, you dont have to tighten any more.

I like the common sense answer much better.
