Default Looking for 5.25 bay fans (1 or 2 slot size)

I am trying to find a GOOD front 5.25 bay fan that blows straight back (not up or down).... I have up to 2 bays open... I found a 3 bay fan but like I said, thats too many bays... The fan can be slotted in 1 bay, but then the air flow is up or down again.... Anyone know of a good cheap single or double bay fan that INTAKES air straight back...

you could make one...... two 60mm or maybe two 80mm by modding the fans so that they're slightly smaller as my 5.25" bay is only 151mm wide

You wont be able to fit a 120mm fan in anything less than three 5.25" bays. I havent seen a product for two 5.25" bays, just three bays or one bay.

You say you've seen one for a ONE bay, does it blow straight through in a line or is it one of those ones with the fans that blow up or down??

How can they not have a device for front bay for cooling (not made for hard drive, but for pc cooling)...?
