Fan from car + mac = whoa - 11/29/06 09:48 PM

I had a spare raiditor fan from a 95 corolla and out of boredem I wired it up to my system and it scared the crap out of me when the fan kicked on. This would be a nice fan to use on a 5 volt connection instead of 12 volts and with a controller. Make all of th air in the system get sucked out. Since the fan makes such a force it can suck air out from the outside and suck it back out in seconds. Right now im testing it on my gaming PC that has a water cooler and it has droped 10 degrees in 11 minutes so far.

Sounds sick!  I just started looking into cooling, and some people talk about not going too cold...

As long as you don't go to below 40*F it should be fine.
