    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Not the aftermarket ones. If I turn mine up it makes more noise than my car [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Alot of those computer mods are pretty cool

    I don't mind if mine are weak, I don't want the plants to try survive a hurricane in my terrarium, just a little air circulation is fine for me. Yes, CHECK YOUR VOLTAGES. I assume you do not want to experience the same exploding fan situation I did when I ignorantly pluged an unknown voltage fan into the mains. Five seconds later it had given off a burning smell. Another five seconds later (just when I was wondering what the heck the smell was and wondering if this could be dangerous), the fan produced a spark 'bout the size of my head, next to my head. Phew, good thing I still have it here, but I don't want anyone to experience the same situation, or neither do I want to see headless cpers. Everyone would blame the plants you see...

    Lol, don't worry, I'll pay attention that my fan requires the same amount of voltage my adaptor outputs. ^_^

    It's a 27 gallons tank (30x12x18), so will a 12v fan do?
    (how do you know if it's a "aftermarket" fan?)

    haha.. i took one of those small honeywell fans. the CFM on average about 2,000 CFM. Before i installed it i used to get condensation on the glass, now i dont. the fan blade is about 7 inch in diameter and its right in the middle of the tank. The leave's sway a little but the air dispersed by the time it gets down to the plants. its installed on the top, pointing down. It feels like a moderate breeze. The plants seem to love it.

    Well I have another question then, the voltage is important, but what about amperes (mA)? Is it an issue as well?

    Yeah it is, think of voltage as how fast something is coming at you, and now think of an mA as how much force whatever is coming at you has. An mA is how strong that driving force will be, the fan will probably be faster the more mA's it has.

    Arrow

    So, if the mA output is too strong, it could be hazardous? Or is it just a good thing?
