Default 110mm fan mod?

Wondering if it was possible to mod a 110mm case fan to run on 110 so I can plug it into an outlet. want to put more cooling in an inclosed desk.
Thanks,
Hefe

You mean 110 volt?

Yeah it's possible, just solder on your 110 volt line properly and your set. However I dont recomend this to the average person.

You will fry a 12 volt fan in one second, you need to use a proper motor
