    Of course it was a joke!!! I hope.
    But then again if you obey the rules I posted there would be no need for rubber gloves.

    Ok, thanks! But either way, I will wear rubber gloves, just to be on the safe side...

    Ok, since I'll be getting the PSU today, I figured that it would be best to get these things sorted out...



    Quote
    AT= old computer standard. Basically its the motherboard layout, they standardized the components for the most part (ie size, and ports) basically so you could use it in any "AT" case etc... (really short version)

    ATX= the current standard.


    The dif. in the power supply is with a newer ATX psu you will have to fool it into thinking it is connected to a motherboard.[/QUOTE]

    Is there something special to do in order to "fool" the power supply?
    I plan on just hooking it up to a timer to run for a little while every night...

    So, here is my step by step:
    1) Match up wire colors on pelt, fans
    2) Splice accordingly
    3) Tape up any extra wires
    4) Hope I have the right kind of plug
    5) If I do, plug it in.

    THANKS AGAIN!!

    I got the PSU today... I do however have some questions now that I see this thing in person...

    1) There are two black wires in the red-black-black-yellow groupings, but my fans only have one... Which one should I use, or does it matter?

    2) There are different widths of the same color pattern wire, which usually means different voltage... Which ones are correct for two small heatsink fans?

    3) My peltier cell only has two wires, a red and a black. Which thickness and which black wire should I utilize?

    Also, the thing to attatch the plug to on the back looks a little bit wierd, will a normal extension cord work, or is it something fancy?

    Ok, since I am at the office and I don't have a reference to look at, I am going to tell you how to figure it out.

    If you look on the side of your PSU it will tell you the voltage of all your wires, and specifically which is ground etc... Now, if you look at the packaging or litarature that came with your pelt, it will tell you the voltage requirements.

    Once you have all that info, post it.

    Your fans should just match up color-wise if they are built for computers.

    And there is a plug that comes with PSU's. If you didn't get one, I would advise buying one from a local store, or online, they should be pretty cheap. You might be able to rig something up. I have never had the need to try though.

It's all setup and pretty much done thanks to Casper and Ozzy. I say pretty much because although everything is working, the coldsink fan is not incredibly powerful. For that reason, I am going to put another WAY more powerful fan right underneath the original coldsink fan, that way, there is a more powerful fan blowing the cold air farther. I'll do some temp measurements and let everyone know how it goes. THANKS AGAIN!!
