    These things are horrible...self tapping ones, they all go in on angles, so I can't get them in all the way. I had the bright idea to use a electric screw driver on the very last screw and it worked a bit better, but I stopped for fear of breaking the fan. I want to get some more but this is just plain annoying. Any tips? or should I just buy different screw? thanks

    cpu and gpu overheat!

    I don't see a question, but if the GPU gets to 100°C, then you need to check the fans in your case (including the PSU fan) are running. If they are all working, you need to check the filters, check none of the vents are blocked and maybe install more case

    Hi Damien. I'm Greg, an installation specialist and 8 year Windows MVP, here to help you.

    It's probably a fan. Power down and open the case, set it on a desk with a bright light shining inside, then power it up again without touching anything inside. Where is the sound coming from. You can take pictures to illustrate or just describe it. Is it the
    case fan mounted to the case, or the fan on top of CPU toward center of PC? Or is it DVD drive or elsewhere.

    I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and let us know how it goes. I will keep working with you until it's resolved.

    wow, thats practically there is no way to just perfectly align the stock screws? Although, I am seriously liking this idea, thanks

    You could keep trying manually with the screwdriver, or run to your local hardware store with a screw in hand. Ask them if they have a tap that size. Google "screw tap" if you are unfamiliar with what I'm suggesting.
