Lol thanks for the suggestions! 120mm/12cm, it's all good! You knew what I meant anyway heh. But, yeah 120mm.

Thanks again.

Yeah, that's an idea actually. I may try that before I decide whether to purchase one or not.

Thanks.

not sure of the strength of the resistor, lol they cost 2c each you might need to buy a few and test them. Coz you dont want it too low or it will stall.

Yeah, I'll just put a variable resistor in there, if I do it. That way I can control the speed (i.e. a home-made fan controller).

make sure the variable resistor isnt too low or else the fan can stall.

Hey he, sorry to plug a thread of mine, but this could very well solve some things. Or, here are some cheap fans that are quite powerful, and rather quiet as well.
