Is the problem the screw or the holes in the case itself? It sucks with my case because these outside holes will be used a lot, when you open and close the case. Afraid it will only get worse with wear.

Something is telling me it was the screw itself, I had spares so I managed. I haven't taken it apart it a while and built it some time ago, so I can't say for sure. It wasn't a huge deal because the rest of the case was fine, except how I sat my knee on the fan opening on the door and bent the hell out of it. I even retired my 600t recently and bought a Midi R2.

Ok because with me i think its the case. Both the upper and lower screws were not aligned correct ly.
I tried screwing the thumbscrews without the sidepanels. Even trying out the different thumbscrews. The right side was without any problems. The left one was problematic. The upperscrew is now stuck.

You have a headphone amp. Why not connect to the rear instead, that way you prevent any EFI coming from the front.
The cables are all the same with front panels on every case.
If the side panel is not properly placed the holes in the back wont be lined up and make the screw tight. That is what would have happened.
It did that on my case, till I slide to door correctly.

You can build a computer. Yet you cannot fix a screw hole?

making such a fuss over something so small is the definition of annoying.

I'm sorry your screw will not fit in your hole. Might want to get a drill and a tap and fix it.

I know it's sad. It's my first time building my own PC. Or I think it's my 2nd one.
Anyway absolutely no clue what you are talking about. I didnt use a drill or a tap when i made my last pc.Sounds like carpenting to me.. Only used a screwdriver last time.

Don't worry. I have built plenty of computers, and modded computer cases etc., but I would have no idea how to tap and thread screw holes. Getting the tools together for that sounds expensive too.

I don't think asking a case manufacturer to ship a case where the screw holes aren't messed up is asking too much. You shouldn't have to repair it fresh out of the box.
