NF-A4x20 5V PWM mounting options

so i have the jetson nano 2GB version [with the type c connector]
and i’m using it for machine learning and so it heats quick and loose performance and so i bought myself the NF-A4x20 5V PWM fan that was recommended from nvidia. and it has arrived and saw that the screws wont fit because they were meant for mounting on a case. but i saw that there were some rubber sticks that came with the fan, so i followed the instructions, and put the rubber sticks thru the fan according to the instructions and then when i wanted to put the rubber sticks thru the holes in the heatsink that is on the jetson nano, i noticed that the holes were just too small. and so i though that if i will pull the rubber sticks strong enough they will fir as the rubber shrinks. but it didn’t happen, i almost couldn’t even pull them because the holes were too small … so they broke.

in the end [after almost two hours] i just used zip ties as i was soo mad that nvidia could have made the holes a little bigger, or at least ship screws with the jetson nano so i could mount a fan there without those weird rubber sticks that didn’t even fit.

Hi, not sure why this happened, but according to description of NF-A4x20 5V PWM in Supported Components List “The fan can be mounted to the developer kit heatsink with M3 self-tapping screws, which should be at least 12.5mm long”, it should not be a issue.
