Case fan thinner than 25mm?

Hi guys, Just wondering if anyone has seen like a "slim line" 120mm case fan? usually dimensions are 120 x 120 x 25 mm, but im hoping for something skinnier.

I already have to cut and shut some mesh/panels to fit a fan, but life would be so much easier if it was thinner than 25mm. Wishful thinking or does someone make them?

Hmm - Had a look, and cant seem to find any - More than likely Im looking in the wrong spot

Why Im posting though is: Maybe get 4 x 60mm thin fans and make up a little array? Dunno - You may want the look of a 120mm

if its thin enough if can stay hidden behind black mesh facia. if not. itll have to be cut to fit, and then some sort of cover made to cover the extrusion of the fan. This could be made from the spare 5.25inch bay drive covers since i wont be needed them, but fixing three of them together and having them held in place will be a lot tricker than it first looks.

Ill keep looking for skinny fans before i make the move to looking for covers for extruding fans. hopefully something will come up!

EDIT: only thing i have found that comes close; Scythe Kaze Jyu Slim 100mm Fan 1000rpm. Not a 120mm, but may have to do.

looks good, i have something like that on the front of my case, hence the spare drive bay covers. I think ill have to do some measure to see what will fit on and what wont.

Its going on the top of the case at the rear as an exhaust fan. the standard mounts are inside that case but my cpu cooler is ridiculously humongous and takes up that space. So, im trying to fit a fan on top of the chassis but under the plastic and mesh facia that sits on top. some plastic grid stuff will have to be cut away for a fan to fit, but a slim fan will still fit underneath the mesh, whereas a standard 25mm fan means the mesh will have to go aswell, and the fan will be exposed.

oh, i should have mentioned its on a CM690. apologies!
