Case fan sizes

I need to order a new case fan. So that I can order the correct size , what are the measuring points on the old fan I need to use .Is it the blade size or the whole assembly. Many thanks.

you can buy a case fan in 2 sizes...80mm or 120mm...unless there are otehrs out there who say different...

Thanks but what I trying to establish is , say on an 80mm fan, is the measurement from blade tip to blade tip or is it across the whole assembly.

Size is measured across the whole assembly.

Whole assembly.

Case fans available in 60mm, 80mm, 92mm & 120mm though the 80 is the commonest. click here
