Mine are too long too. Inadvisedly, I tightened them down anyway (thinking that it was just a threading issue) and now I'm worried about having put stress on the radiator itself.

I'm getting increasingly annoyed with Corsair for things like this, because in my situation, I'm using the stock long screws. When I looked at it on the side, they've slammed into the stop pretty hard.

When I compared it to the long screws that came with the 570x case, they're a smidgeon longer (less than 1/16th). I've seen this with screws before. {shrug}.

You can get 1/4" shorter screws in America, but that might be too short.

Most crimping tools (like $10 out here) will have as part of them a way of cleanly snapping off bolts to the desired length.

But, I would suggest that you simply use a 1/16th inch nylon washer for each one (that's what I'm doing now, albeit an hour too late).
