    As long as it outputs voltage to match and current to match or exceed the specs of the fan, so 12V and probably 200mA. Unless you want to run the fan on, say, 5V and have it run slower/quieter... then use a 5V adapter.

    If you don't have a voltmeter, Heli, check the fans, they usually have arrows on the sides ponting to rotation of the blades and direction of the air. This can help you figure out which wire goes where.

    You won't blow it up or anything... that's all I was trying to get at haha. But yes, thanks for clarifying!

    Woot! I just finished mine, here it is:

    The reservoir is a little cramped



    Any tips on how I can make it better would be awesome, I am running it now to see how cold the air gets.

    I also seem to have an issue of not enought air movement. Should I try to get the fan pretty much directly into the tank?

    Also, i got this stuff.. not sure whether I could use it

    Nice work! Let me know what kind of temperatures your cooler gets the water down to. Do you have a thermometer you can stick into the reservoir? My cooler gets water down to about 40 degrees, and I'm curious as to whether your larger cooler also gets the water colder.

    Anyway, you only need antifreeze if you can get your water below freezing when you max out the thermostat. My cooler doesn't. Yours might. I suppose you could also use the eyeball test... if there's ice in the reservoir, you need antifreeze!

    I am kind of having some weird air movement. It doesnt seem to push the air all around the tank. Is there some way I can make the water cooler constantly running.
