Hello,

The screw mount holes on the fan are not threaded. You need to drive each screw through each hole on the fan to create an internal screw thread.

You may need to use force. While creating internal screw threads on the fan, plastic shavings will fall away from the fan, so it's a good idea to do it on a table where you can easily clear away plastic shavings.

Did you check to see if your fan is pushing out air? There should be an intake and an exhaust fan. To check and see if it's pushing out the air, get a tissue paper and put it near the fan.

So still I'm concerned about case fan...

IS it good to have case fan..?
what's the advantage of having CASE fan..?


I talked to the seller of that fan about my Pc temperature, he told me that your motherboard temperature is higher while using that because it need power and that gets via motherboard so that could be the reason he told me.. so
please help me... I don't have any idea about that ..

you need that exhaust fan so that cold air can travel into your computer cooling the components, that air gets hot and is blown out of your system via that exhaust fan
