    Hi,

    This is going to sound like a dumb question for some of you but I'll ask it anyway. How do you measure a fan, is it diagonal or on one side, and is it outside edge or screw holes? I just ordered a processor fan and I got the wrong size even though I thought I had measured.

    Thanks for your help!!

    I believe it is from the middle of the screw hole to the adjacent screw hole. Not diagonally across the fan.

    Thanks, I'll try that. I think I went from outside edge, middle of screw hole would make sense as to the wrong fan size that I received.
