5.25 Mount For Case Fan
 
Okay, so my case is the CM 690 II Advanced. It has one 140mm intake fan in the front. I was looking at installing another somehow, but the only space left in the front of the case is my 5.25 bays. There is more than enough room in the remaining three 5.25 bays to fit a 140mm fan, but there's no way of keeping it there. I'm wondering if there are any devices out there that fit into 5.25 bays that would allow me to mount a 140mm fan to it. If so, can somebody link me to where I could possibly buy one. Thanks in advance!

Sorry about the confusing description of what I'm looking for :p

I believe this is what you're looking for: Scythe KAMA-BAY 120mm Fan for 5.25" System Cooling

Hmm...I did some Googling and it seem the max size is 120mm. Lian Li makes one just with fan (no HDD space) that takes up 3 slots.

Is there a reason why anybody would actually be able to see what the fan mount looks like? If not, how about the next best thing to duct tape.... plastic tie wraps (zap straps as I call 'em.... ). 4 through the fan mounting holes on one side, and whatever space you can find in the 5 1/4 bay will do the trick, and as an added bonus.... it'll be free-floating thus reducing the possibility of fan vibration noise.........

Might be a bit gheto, but if nobody can see it, then qui cares????? ;)

Yes, something is exactly what I'm looking for. Only thing is that I wanted to hide it behind my bay covers. Are there any products that would like that?

Readily available for ~$15 in Canada as well. Unless you didn't want the hard drive cage behind it.

I used to have a few Kama Bays, they were great, but now impossible to find....

That was going to be my first suggestion too, but now I can't find them anywhere either.
I should drop Linus a line and see if he knows if they still make them,

you should be able to just use zip ties through the screw hole and mount them to the hole in the 5.35 bay. Alternatively, you could also use double sided spongy tape.
