Hope that helped
I tried that, but the screws won't fit in there, they're either too long or the plastic of the fan gets in the way.

is M4 the type of screw I need? because I found this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/M4-HANDLE-SCRE...item6b1aca10bf

the screws I have that almost fit are 30mm long, so if I get 35mm long ones then I should be good right?

No you need M4x10 MM

They will fit , as you need to go inbetween the fans and through the rad

Also what fans have you got ?

fans I have are gentle typhoons and aerocool sharks.
pretty sure 35mm ones will work nicely and go right through the case>fan>and into the rad. if they end up a bit too long I can use some washers or rubber grommets

Well yeah i suppose you could do that,

Did the fans come with the standard fan screws that you have as what i was saying was use the 10mm bolts and and then use the std case screw fans to mount the fan +rad to the case
