you may be able to take this and reverse it and get it to work? just out of curiousity, why are you asking-most cases I find that come with 140 mm fan mounts (such as the CM690 I recomended to you in another thread) also have 120 mm mounts inside the 140 mm mounts.

FWIW: I don't necessarily use the screws to install/stabilize case fans...super-glue seems to work just fine for fastening.
