    I picked up the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX with accepts 1x 200mm, 2x 140mm or 2x 120mm in the front.

    The mounting is a bit confusing as I can't use the normal fan screws.
    What kind of hardware do I need to mount two of these?

    I was searching eBay and not finding anything suitable.
    I did find rubber mounting screws but they are probably too big.

    You need 6-32 x 1" 1/4 screws, according to the interewebs the holes for 140mm fans are too small for normal course thread fan screws.

    I am not sure what thread you need.

    Will I also need washers and bolts?
    I would think these would be easier to find on eBay.

    Not sure, I only did a quick Google search and found multiple posts with people all doing it differently. Some used self tapping screws, some used bolts, washers and nuts and some used zip ties.

    I deally you need either someone here who has done it with their own Evolve case or to find a detailed explanation online.

    I've been looking and found a few people asking this question but none that posted what they did in the end.

    will 30mm screws like this work or do I need washers and bolts?

    I honestly don't know, it will depend if you can screw the screws/bolts into the metal directly, I don't know if it is thick enough to hold a screw thread without nuts.

    I seem to recall coming across this before and if you contact Phanteks they should be able to post you thinner screws free of charge.

    Alternatively I think I have some 6-32 x 1" 1/4 screws in the loft. They are cap headed though so you'll need an allen key driver of some description.
