They fit. They are a bit larger because they are self threading. You just need to apply a bit more pressure to get them going.

Nope. Be sure to support the fan with your hand as you screw them in.

And use the right size cross head screw driver. Otherwise it will slip.

Some fans come with larger screws and some with smaller than what your case may call for. I have seen some come with holes drilled that didn't line up with the case at all.
