Default Fan grills

Hello,

I am looking for some pretty basic fan grill. The only requirements are: 120mm and must distance itself a bit from the fan.

Not sure if the last one is clear. Basicly it can't be perfectly flat, it needs to be higher where the blades are compared to where its screwed. Sorry for the terrible language, usually I manage with english, but I have no clue how to explain this in an intelligible way.

Any fan grill does that ? Such as this nGear one. Any other suggestion is welcomed.

You want the ones with the offset, like these: 120mm Chrome Jumbo Metal Fan Guard

I can't tell you if the ngear ones are offset or not.

The Ngear ones are offset by about 1.5mm, I'm rough eyeballing my caliper, might be a bit off. If you need any significant offset, look elsewhere.

These ones come with the mounting screws, but unfortunately aren't a lot in stock...... NCIX.com - Buy Nexus 120MM Case Fan Wire Protective Grill - WG-120 In Canada.

If you need some form of stand-off, you could use some form of spacer (any plastic tubing would do the trick) and cut to the proper length.
