Default Re: Running DC brushless PC cooling fans

@MerlinM, good point. I hadn't thought of it as an overhead rather than current drawn.

@Chris - good to know. I'll rustle up a PWM controller and go for one of these more powerful fans that you recommend. I had a very powerful and beautifully engineered muffin fan from Papst - solid brand indeed.

Cheers.
