Interchangeable Fans (continuing from Thermaltake thread)

I've seen cases that can fit different size fans, but the problem I see with these cases is that it obstructs airflow when you have extra mounts for an 80mm fan when you are using a 120mm fan. And having something that slides in and on or something removable would be flimsy and create extra vibrations.

the extra vibrations are remmoved by the little rubber feet on each screw. It wouldn't be flimsy if you know what your making it out of.. a strong material.

Well, I was more talking about the cheaper cases I've seen with this implemented.

But you make a good point that the vibrations are eliminated by rubber and it can be made out of something like 2mm aluminum.

Considering it hasn't been done before though, I imagine that there isn't much demand for stuff like this. I mean, I'd shell out the extra $10 or so to get a low dB high CFM 120mm fan instead of a whiny 80mm fan. If the space can allow, why not?
