I was bored and found a old car A/C fan in my garage. Well for laughs and such I did this. Wired up the fan to my test system's power supply. I made a quick video of the test, check it out.

LOL, sounded like it was gonna take off. Its louder than the RAID of 19GB scsi drives in my file server. (I have 20 19GB drives in raid 1+0)

Yea, it felt like it was going to take off. I had a heck of a time holding it, good thing I held it because if I was going to using something to hold it with, my luck it wouldn't hold and end up spinning and try to chop a body part off.

Since the fan motor is so powerful I'm thinking to use it on a car mod i've been thinking about. A electric supercharger. All of the so called electric superchargers i've seen use a standard 80 or 120mm computer fan that blows at the most 78cfms.

when you said "hell i'll just use my hand" i thought of the joke, "if right before you die you say 'hey y'all watch this' you might be a redneck"

Yea, on the play back all I could do was laugh at myself.
