I'm making a list of fans that are not really intended/marketed for PC cooling purposes but which can be good choices for high-performance applications. Especially larger, powerful, high-CFM/static-pressure fans for case mounting, radiators, and other custom fabrication.

So for just a minute, forget about 80mm LED bling, I'm looking for real fans here! Post anything you've used that's outside of the mainstream for computer use, what you used it for, and how you adapted/mounted it to fit your needs.

Haha I considered for a moment adding a "please no leaf blower setups and the like" clause to the OP, but oh well.
