My System Specs

Default Thin exhaust fan?

I own a Dell XPS 730X desk top with not much room in it for add on interior fans etc. Of all those fans that I have looked at, none are thin enough to install for rear exhaust, They are all about 1 inch thick. A half inch would fit perfectly. Anyone ever heard of one? Thanks.

What's the width of the opening? 120mm? 92mm? 80mm?

25mm thickness is standard for all case fans, and there are 15mm variants which might fit.

Here you go.
I have one (1200 RPM model and kept @800 RPM by SpeedFan) in front on my P182 bottom HDD cage and they're OK.

+1 to burebista's recommendation. I have used those fans as well and for tight spaces, they are a good choice. Definitely good at lower speeds too :)

I second that opinion, they use that same fan on one of their downdraft coolers and they are really good.
