Maybe this. Both look like they have a yellowish stripe on top.

So i started using my new lights today, and realized how hot they run. I am in need of a cooling fan. I have heard of people using cooling fans from computers, but i dont know how they have been wired. Does anyone use this idea? or are there better ideas? I would appreciate any help as always. thank you in advance.

The computer fans work fine. Unfortunately, they do need DC current, so you need to get an AC to DC inverter from Radio Shack or such store. I like the variable voltage versions (generally 3v-12v), because you can adjust the sound of the fan with the voltage. Basically, just splice the wires together. That's it!
