Re: micro fan (Re: [APD] Re: Re: failed CF Retro)

I was going to write up a journal tonight on installing computer fans on AHSupply hoods.  Snagged the info from nano-reef and aquaticquotient, since they have problems with overheating.  Basically, all you have to do it rip out some fans out of an old computer, and then go through your electrical junk and find any 12V transformer from a old cordless phone or whatever.  I should have step by step instructions by tomorrow.

You can get computer fans of various sizes (usually 60, 80, and 120mm) 
at any 
online computer store. You can also get them at local computer stores 
places like Best Buy, but you will pay about 3 times more. I like 
shopping at 
www.newegg.com . They have great products, always the lowest prices (or 
least within a dollar or two), inexpensive shipping, and awesome 
service. Honestly, I DON'T work for them, but I do build a lot of 
and ALWAYS buy my parts from them. You can pick up an 80mm fan for 
about $5 
after shipping from them. They also sell nice looking fan guards if you 
them (both plain and fancy laser cut ones). You can also get clear 
fans with various colored LEDs in them... they work well as moon 
lights. Keep 
in mind all computer fans operate at 12v.
