30mm assuming you are a 25mm fan and a fan grill.

I highly suggest taking a look at the Koolance mounting bolts though. They make things so easy.
Koolance Radiator Mounting Screw & Nut, 25mm Products Model: BLT-HX025 [BLT-HX025] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

EDIT: Although you would need to tape the radiator to M4.

It's a typo, he means "tap". The fan mount threads on Swiftech rads are 6-32.
