You'll need a 12 volt DC power supply to drive the fan.  Your choices are to 
either build your own power supply, or buy one on the commercial market.  
Since I made a recommendation and caught flak over it, I'm going to switch my 
recommendation to simply avoid computer fans and get a 115 VAC muffin fan.  
They require no power supplies at all.  Just splice in a regular line cord 
and plug it in.
