Actually, I just re-measured it. It's exactly 90mm so I guess that's what I'm gonna be getting.

Yeah I was gonna say it doesn't look like the tape is correctly lined up and that it looks closer to 90mm.

Yeah, but wtf is it 2mm smaller for?
I can't imagine how many people bought 92mm fans and they wouldn't fit.

Annoying stuff I agree haha. Good thing I checked it out before rushing and buying one, saves a few bucks.

Decided to go with

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999966

as I couldn't find any with LEDs and it's cheap and has good reviews.

What ever you do exorcise extreme caution when mounting it. If you use the standard fan screws they have a annoying way of not wanting to go down easy. A slip of the screw driver can leave a nasty gash in the side window.
I would recommend running the screws down in the fan first cutting the threads, then it will be easier to get them in when you mount the fan to the window.
