Default Half height 140mm fans?

As the title states, do they make half height 140mm case fans? Trying to work with my stupid lancool K6-2 and figuring out where to cram a MRC220 radiator.I was thinking a half height 140mm fan would fit on the radiator if I top mounted it but im not sure where or if they make them half height. My google-fu is weak today as I was up all night working.

Can you explain what you mean by a half height fan?

Yes thats exactly what I meant, I vaguely remember seeing that thread but didnt remember where. 120mm half height would work as well too.

What I plan on doing, and its worked before was to mount the rad where the stock 140mm fans are and place a set of half height fans pulling air off it and to put the 140mm fans inside the case pushing air out of the case so between the 2 low CFM sets of fans (2 x 140 pushing air over the entire rad + 2 x 120mm slim fans pulling air off it. Ive measured everything and it would appear to fit.

120mmx15mm fans if they exist will not have enough static pressure to be any use on a radiator.
