I've been presented with a problem and I've come up a few solutions...
First of all, my problem is that i need a detachable 10-12v power source.
Ya, it's not an everyday thing that you see on the forums. I don't want to set up 2 USB ports from the front in parallel to grab 10v. But, would that be possible? I could just cut and split the wires of two USB ports to grab 5v a piece. Then put them in parallel to the fans I wish to power. Would two power sources of the same voltage (pressure difference) create a combined voltage of 10v?
Crap, I don't remember this stuff! LOL!
If not, how else would I make an external detachable power source? I'm completely stumped on this one. My only other idea was to grab 12v from the DVD drive and run it out one of the fan holes.
But then, im still left with how I'm going to make it detachable! AHH!
My main purpose is to make it cosmetically pleasing. THANKS for all ideas submitted. I really need 'em. BTW this topic concerns with two special order fans that I'm gonna make a quick tut for. I'm looking for a high voltage source because my xbox is overheating from all the extra devices I put in it (fans, LOTS of lights, tape, hot glue, ect.).
Can't wait to see the feedback This post has been edited by Sloppy Fat Dump: Mar 16 2006, 04:14 AM
