that ain't far off a simple 120mm fan, is it? Probably would be best to mount a filter of some kind behind it. (Without getting kinky a fine black silk stocking, doubled up would do the job)

never seen one in the pc world, I'm sure they exist but you'll need to think outside the box to find one, and it might not be 12V

I would go with a 140mm you could go bigger but then your getting into AC fans . That's OK I have a 10" ac fan I'm using it produces 665 cfm and if you put it on a ac fan speed controller you can adjust it. If you have eany other questions give me a ha-la I have done a lot of research on case fans both ac and dc. Do you want it for looks or cooling power and is sound an issue?

I don't care how loud it is at the moment, because an idle jump of 10*C just by putting the side panel on is NOT cool. So sound is not an issue :D Performance and cost...they are the issues.

Check out this fan Aerocool Streamliner 140mm LED Case Fan I think this fan would look good with your case. you mite have to make a custom mounting bracket.

Just looked on newegg and found a 120mm fan and bracket fits in 3 5 1/4 in bays for $15.95 fan it comes with not that great but you can upgrade it. this mite be a easier solution
