But, I think the best way to go is using this setup :

Thanks Anrgeir

But it's 80$ for the components as i recall it plus shipping to Europe. Then the final fan would cost

Fan 25$
Standoff adapter 80$
Turbax rotor 40 $
Total 145$ minus shipping
Thats not cheap compared to a brand new
Turbax fan at 175 $

Still I am sure it would be the best solution with the standoff adapter but not cheap.
