I think it is because both the radiator and screws are painted without any consideration for the extra thickness that will cause the screws to become and how much narrower the screw holes will become. Remove the paint from the surfaces and I bet they fit perfectly. This is indeed unacceptable practice. They should have protected the threads before painting them.

Yeah I just experienced this myself today and it just felt so wrong with how much force I had to use. I hate using that much force when working on someone else's computer, lol.

Next time I am recommending a large air cooler instead.
