    Is there anyway you can change a 80mm fan to a 120 mm.

    yes.. if you use a 120mm to 80mm adatpor.

    I can't give you a actual link as i'd suspect this would be useless...i'm in the uk..But the image should give you an idea.I simple search from where you are is not difficult to find.

    This might not be the most practical way....it's going to depend on what you are changing and the position of whatever,if ti's for a cpu this will depend on the motherboards positioning of the slot.and the psu within the system case.

    Those things don't work all that well, as it restricting flow.

    Get a new case or cut a bigger hole

    TBH I'd just get a more powerful 80MM fan

    Tulc aslong as you keep the fan at a reasonable low rpm it should be right, roughly the same airflow at a lower noise level

    Ever taken physics?

    You wouldn't get much air coming in and the actual CFM rating would be way lower then what the fan specifies.

    http://www.overclockers.com/tips336/ has something to do with explaining it.

    It all has to do with static air pressure and variances in air pressure etc.
