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.
