Canopy Fans

I want to add 4 fans to my canopy to help cool my VHO's and PC's. I've seen people use those small computer case fans, but what do you use to power them?

Any recomendations?


TIA

they use a appropriate ac/dc convertiter, the block looking adapters.. an adjustable one would work.. are you going with the 50mm fans and how many total volts will they need to operate?

If you want the 50mm fans (2"X2"), wich alot of people use in there strip lights, you would need to look for them online there rare for Personal Computers. If you have the room in your canopy you could go with 80mm or 120mm fans.. If you have a big canopy you could go with the 120mm fans there about 4.72" square..
