This converts a different sized fan (25mm thick) for use on a 40mm x 10mm fan connector. By doing this your noise level and sound level can be EXTREMELY decreased while putting out more CFM than a 40mm can ever do.
For the 120mm, 92mm, and the 80mm fan mounts there are extra tall versions (30mm taller) that allow more airflow to pass.
This requires 3mm x 15mm fan mount screws for the 40mm side and 4.5mm x 30mm for the 120mm fan connection (4 of each type) and 4mm x 30mm for the others. All mounting fans need to be 25mm or adjust the length of the 4 screws for it. Use heavy infill for this since it will need it and I honestly suggest 75% to 100% due to the weight of the larger fans and the screws need the infill to really dig into.
The file is uploaded to show how it will look when mounted so flip it however you think will print the best for you and your machine but I think 180 degrees around (40mm side up the larger side down) should print better.
