WTB: Fan for old PC case
 
I'm after a fan to fit a '98-vintage case housing a '06-vintage
system. The case has room for a fan at bottom front but it must either be
a '2 screw' fan or fit in a plastic cage. Pics available or perhaps
someone knows what I'm on about already...

Cage will take an 80mm x 80mm assembly (which I'm guessing means a blade
diameter of less than 80mm...). This 'clips' into the cage which then
clips onto the case.

These are still 2 a penny. The 80 by 80 by 25mm fans. You might need to
ask Heath Robinson how to phyically fix it tough.

Good grief, he was an artist! The term Heath Robinson means to me that
something is rather basic, yet functional.

He was to the Brits what Rube Goldberg was to the Yanks. Rather than "basic,
yet functional", the term refers to the use of incredibly convoluted and
complicated mechanisms to perform very simple tasks.

Disambiguation much appreciated guys... and I'm not averse to reaching for
the #8 wire... (or icosahedral carbon-ytterbium nanostructures as need be)
but I can't believe that an 'off the (dusty, probably) shelf' solution
does not exist given that the cage was presumably designed to hold
_something_ (either in existence or soon to be so)!!! And presumably hold
it with the required force...
