OK so I built PC a couple months ago with a hyper 212+ cooler and i had an extra 120mm LED fan laying around so ima put it in for mostly case lighting but also cooling but the QUESTION IS...
the additional screws that came with the hyper 212+ (along with the extra brackets) will not go into the holes on the fan. They are just too tight to go down all the way, but the heads are perfect for the brackets. What do.

Do i just need to force them in?

They should fit just fine, you screw the brackets to the fan and it just snaps onto the heatsink. Did the same with some antec fans. Coolermaster also sells a matched fan for that heatsink, but you need your own splitter for it

got a picture of this misalignment?

If the fan has not have screws on that side, since it is a pulling fan(thereby may only be threaded on the other side). Some force to turn the screws will be needed as they cut there own way into the plastic.

good to know it works, check the temps. generally it is better to use matched fans for a push/pull setup.

Does it require a PWM fan?

No. You can use any fan type you want. The stock fan is PWM and will also run on a 3 pin board/power connector(lowering voltage slows down a pwm fan as well).

PWM is just one way to control fan speed.
