So uh, i just measured it incorrectly? Is it not measuring from the screw hole to the other?
What's the best way to measure the fans? (I wouldn't wanna try taking it off though)

The size is measured as the diameter of the fan blades.

Why exactly are you measuring the CPU fan?
if your looking to replace it, you should probably replace the whole heatsink.
then you just have to work out what socket your CPU is (e.g. LG1155, LG755, LG1366, AM2, AM2+, AM3 etc)
