Default Thin Fans

I'm looking for 12cm or 14cm fans that are 2cm thick or less.

Thanks.

Yate Loon has some 120 x 20mm fans on the cheap (~$6).

And so does Scythe in the 120x12mm format.

For the record, the Scythe 12mm thick fans barely move any air. I have 80mm (normal thickness though) Panaflos that move more air and is quieter than this 12mm thick 120mm.
If you can fit a 20mm fan, the Yates are probably much better than the Scythes.

Agree, but I squeeze one of those in my lower chamber of my P182 and keep it under 700 RPM and that's enough to bring my HDD's temperature from lower 50's to lower 40's Celsius (temps from last summer).
Me very happy with my slim Scythe.
