screws supplied with Deepcool and coolermaster fans

I have tried to fix Deepcool and coolermaster 80mm cabby led fans.
Ofcourse they are good in performence, the screws supplied with them are poor. I need to apply too much pressure to fasten them..
Is there way to get rid of such screws?

Problem is not with screws..
Its the holes...
Generally selftipping screws provided with fans create threads for themselves when tightened for 1st time. You may use a drill (~1mm smaller than screws dia) to expand holes.

For the first time it will be tight afterwards it will be ok,dont worry but dont apply too much pressure the edges may break.

I find absolutely no issue with the screws supplied with fans - they may not be very sleek to work with but they are god enough and gives your hand a really good exercise .

One Tip - is not to hold the fan too tightly with the vents - just hold the fans gently with t=cabinet vents - secure all of the screws loosely first and then tighten them one by one.

No fan have pre-cut thread in them. At the time of first installation you need to create that with the supplied screws, and that's why you need to apply more pressure.
