    or

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811998019


    most computer stores should sell them either as rubber fan mounts/screws or anti vibration
  4. I can not use newegg.com site because i am outside US and i am from other country

    some body give me great clue to use the 3M Scotch Heavy Duty Mounting Tape

    I can found it in lots of places
  5. Best answer
    not sure what country your in but go to a local computer site in your country and do a search for rubber fan mounts
  6. And just for future reference, those grub screws are normal fan screws - they're self-tapping, so they're designed to cut into the plastic as you screw them in for the first time. It shouldn't take much force, and certainly shouldn't damage the rest of the fan.
