These are now deprecated and replaced by version 2 - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:469928

This converts a different sized fan (25mm thick) for use on an 80mm x 10mm fan connector. By doing this your noise level and sound level can be EXTREMELY decreased while putting out more CFM than an 80mm can do.
There are extra tall versions (30mm taller) that allow more airflow to pass.


This requires 4mm x 15mm fan mount screws for the 80mm side and 4.5mm x 30mm for the 120mm fan connection (4 of each type) and 4mm x 30mm for the other size. All mounting fans need to be 25mm or adjust the length of the 4 screws it uses. 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 (80mm side up the larger side down) should print better.
