Default My first thread! Cooling problems....

I'm not really that smart when it comes to computers, but I know enough to get me by...

On one of my desktop PCs that is about 3 years old, my case fan went out somehow- it just stopped workin. The PC is a Gateway "Microtower" I'm not sure what model (not the best) and I went to get a new cooling fan and it turns out that my fan is 92mm instead of 80mm like I expected....I can only find 92mm in basically the Gateway parts order section of the site and from the actual company...that makes it. I have never built my own computer so i don't know about putting everything together, but is there anyway that I could put an 80mm case fan in somehow? How would I go about doing this? I feel like such a n00b.
