Nice job, looks really cool!
I see that the fans are connected to each other with zip ties, but how are the two fans connected to the side grill of the console?
Also, if one takes two fans and tie the two positive wires together and the two ground wires together and connect them to a 12 volt ac adapter, will the fans run at full speed or only half speed each?
Also how would one calculate the number of fans one can connect to a single ac adapter without running into any problems. Does the total amps have to be less than the total amps the adapter supports?
Thanks for the help in advance. I might actually do this to my console because it wouldn't require any soldering or cutting of the case.
Also, if one used an AC adapter with an adjustable voltage switch, the fan's speed could be manually adjusted?
thanks man, 1st i used 3m two sided tape, the fact that you didn't notice it makes me happy i tried to make it unnoticeable and it makes a real nice seal around the fans. 2nd with these particular fans they are 3 speed selectable so if you wire them to 12v they still are adjustable via a switch (notice the little black wire with plastic box attached to it right above the fusible link) i bought the fans just as they are from office depot. 3rd the fan package should tell you how many ma the fan requires, i think its usually around 300ma for those size fans, and it also says it on the back of the intercooler before you cut it up. I think its 500ma.
I just bought a cheap power supply from walmart it has 5 or 6 different voltage selections plus its also a usb power supply

id put a dust guard on them.
yeah that has been a concern of mine i just haven't found anything suitable yet, as far a restricting the air flow.
