Fan Grill + Fan Screw Size

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am going to mod a few 120mm fan holes and was wondering what dimension screws I need. I need like normal fan screws but longer, just enough to fit through a grill, the case, and the fan.

TBH I haven't the foggiest... I know the case, PSU, PCI are 6-32's and then the mobo/cdrom etc are M3's.
Funnily enough nobody on dikipedia seems to know either.

edit:
Bill at mnpctech sells #10 x 5/8" Stainless Steel Phillips Pan Head screws, with 6/32 thread, but they aren't self tapping screws.
I'm guessing they would the be correct size though.

For something to fit the case fan and grill I'd suggest a 5/8 about 16-20mm long(0.62" - 0.78") nut/bolt and some grommets so it doesn't rattle at all.
