Default 80mm 92mm 120 mm fan mounting spacing

How far apart are the mounting holes on a 92mm case fan?

I have a case that is advertized to accept an 80mm or a 120mm fan on the
rear exhaust vent. I accidentally ordered a 92mm fan instead. I didn't
notice until it was too late (it laready shipped). Am I going to need an
adapter? If so, - Well, I see all sorts of 92 to 80mm adapters out there.
I can't seem to find a 92mm to 120mm adapter any where. Is there such a
thing?

You can tape it on.

Though I'm a firm beleiver in mystic abilities of baling wire and duct tape,
I do happen to own a drill and a dremmel tool. Knowing the distance between
the mounting holes would help me make a decision between modding and
ordering another fan. If the 92mm is not suitable for my purpose, it will
find a home on one of my SLK-800s and I'll order a 120. Any idea what the
distance between the mounting holes is either diagonally, horizontally, or
vertically on a standard 92mm fan?

If the case takes 80 and 120, 90 being in between, I'd guess that you can
make holes for it. You can stand it off on rubber grommets too, or use one
of those vibration-damping gaskets.

According to the Farnell website (a large electronic component supplier
in the UK) the fixing centres for 92mm fans are 71.5mm apart. See

for details.

I typed the words *80mm 92mm fan adapter* in to Google and it magically
brought up this: http://tinyurl.com/9cnw8

Looking for a 92 to 120. There is one that is 120 to 92, but it won't suit
my purpose

I decided to reply twice.

Listen. Should we put up a sign on usenet that reads: "Just use google.
Human interaction has been replaced" ?? . If you think I don't know how
to use a search box... maybe you can just **** right off. Your "magical
appearance" (of the wrong answer anyway because you didn't read) was not my
chosen method to secure the information I desired. I chose to use usenet.
That's where I might actually find a *person* with the information I want
who is willing to share it with me.

You ****ers who always post, "Use google" and seldom contribute anything of
relavence to threads on usenet can lick my sweaty balls. To state it more
simply - **** you.

Maybe they're just tired of answering lazy, syphlitic, goat blowing
lamers such as yourself. And I mean that in a nice way.
