gotto radio shack and get a 12 volt adapter....one that goes from ac current to dc current...cut the end off and connect the wires...positive to positive and negative to negavite......if you were to get an adapter with different settings ie. 6v 9v 12v you could control the rate of air transfer even more

Buy a computer power supply, plug that into the wall, and plug in the fans to the power supply.

They don't come in less thatn 250W, because they're used to power a computer. Depending on what kind of power supply you get, You should be able to hook up at least 10 computer fans.

if a computer fan is rated at 12v and you hook it up to 250w do you think it will still work after you burn it out in 3 seconds....

go to radio shack and get the computer fans 12.99 to 19.99 each here I don't know what they would cost where your at. They run off 120V outlet I use them in my Incubator then get a cheap cord put it together and plug it in and your done.



here a picture of the bigger fan they have the smaller ones run off 120V too.

and even if you had 10 or 20 fans hooked up to it....which is just rediculous....each fan would be getting an equal amount of energy which would be 250 watts...which would blow every fan out and end up costing you more money...its just not practical

That isn't how it works. lets say you have a computer, and it had a 250w power supply. If you switch in a 550w power supply will the computer burn out? No. Each of the power outputs only have so much it can supply. The higher the wattage the more the outputs.

why make something more difficult than it has to be..sorry dude but computer power supplies are for computers...first off you wouldnt hook up a 550w power supply to your computer if its recomended to have a 250w one..the extra power will actually increase the processor speed causing the computer to generate more heat which the computer fan cant get rid of which will burn out your mother board eventually...thats like substituting alcohol for gasoline in your car...in time something will go wrong.....and a 250w power supply will most definatley burn out a tiny 12v fan....it just isnt practical...its kinda like unhooking your car battery and connecting it to a 9 v enegizer

Heh, afraid this statement doesn't quite add up. Imagine volts as being little fishies swimming by in single file, and amperes as being how fast these fish can swim. Now imagine your computer fan as being a fishing net. Say your "net" can hold 20 little fishies and there are 60 little fishies swimming past in a stream. Now if these fish are very slow swimmers you could simply net them 20 by 20 until you have all 60, but if they happen to be lightning-fast swimmers there's no way you'll be able to catch them all. By the time you dump the first netful into your bucket 20 more will already be long gone.

Wattage is calculated by multiplying your volts by amperes (fishies X speed) and therefore as it is being used, available wattage drops. If you catch all 60 fish (watts) and you have a family of 5 to feed you can't very well give each of them 60 fish (unless you're Jesus Christ!), and therefore there would be only 12 fish available to each family member (unless some eat more than others).

:laugh: Anyway, just wanted to clear this up and have a little fun while I was at it.

Get a 12v. power converter, i.e. power adaptor, preferably one you don't need anymore and hook it up as long as the output is less mA than the fan can take.

Sorry, can't let you get away with that either. Ever checked the voltage of a car battery? It's only 12 volts, but it can supply a hell of a lot more power than the aforementioned common 9-volt battery because the amperes are something like 300 times higher. You most definitely can use a 550W power supply with a motherboard which recommends a 250W power supply. Any power supply recommendations for computers are minimums, and for most users a higher-wattage supply is definitely better as it allows for more hard drives, floppy disk drives, and any other sort of powered peripherals.

that doesnt make sense because i cant follow you ..but the point to my argument is that it isnt practical...which it isnt...and which is why most people if not all of them use an extention cord or a 12v power supply which both cost less than 10 dollars ....if you like making you life more difficult and have alot of money to waste on something you dont need than thats fine too

My point wasn't that any of the set-ups mentioned by anyone else were practical - the reason for my posts were to point out that your assumptions about the way electricity works are not correct. This may be a mushroom site, but I see no reason to let misinformation dealing with other fields to slide by any more than mycological misinformation.

There seems to be a lot of confusion here about wattage.Wattage is simply AMPS X VOLTS = WATTS.A 550w power supply won't make a device connected to it draw any more power than a 100w supply.If the fan is designed to run off 12 volts at lets say .14 amps,Then you would want to make sure that you use a supply rated at LEAST .14 amps at 12 volts. Example: a 12 volt supply capable of delivering 2 amps would be fine,but not one capable of only .09 amps. If you use a supply that has less than 12 volts output,then it will draw more current than .14 amps to deliver the same power (wattage)

In reply to:

number 2 this is the dumbest thing you said because a computer only has 1 and i reapeat 1 hard drive




Oh really? Which particular computer are you talking about? Not only did I think some people used more than one hard drive in their computer, but I thought there was more than one computer in existence as well. Silly me.


In reply to:

number 3 you dont need any more floppy drives because 1 no one uses floppys anymore 2 people use 3.5's or cd's and you can only use one at a time anyway...you cant run a 3.5 drive with a floppy drive at the same time ....and youll see the only way to do it is with a music cd already running.....and you dont need any more power than what is recomended because exces drivers such as printers and scanners have their own powersupply .....but you knew that didnt you




I used floppy drives as an example only... I currently have a CD-ROM drive, a CD-R drive, a hard drive, and a floppy drive. I also intend to get a DVD drive at some point. There are many other internal drives that many people use - ZIP Drives and other backup devices, additional fans, etc. I myself have had varied setups before, including multiple hard drives (I've had up to 3 in one computer) and multiple disk drives (perhaps you see no use for this, but then again this isn't about you or me - I was only explaining electrical formulae to begin with). Regardless of what you may think you know, there are thousands of different types of computer users out there, all with their own particular uses and desired specifications. Don't take it upon yourself to start flaming just because you don't see beyond your own little box.

OK but it was an example so stop spreading your misinformation about computers mister im running 3 hard drives at once along with 6 floppy drives ....and you can run a 12v fan on a 250 watt power supply but it will burn out....it will...ive done it thats why i use a 12v power supply because the fan is goin faster than it has to and burns out

No, you wouldn't put a 75W light into a socket rated at 40W. This is due to fire risk related to wire gauge. How does this relate at all to what I have been trying to explain? We're talking about putting a low-voltage fan on a high-wattage power supply. Volts and watts are not interchangable. Please research this a little more before making senseless comments about anyone else's knowledge.

Dude, time to quit smoking the crack. It's not actually a very complex concept - many devices can be run from one computer. Yes, even on a dinky little personal computer like yours or mine. You're just digging yourself deeper and deeper into the stupid hole. BTW: This is the cultivation forum, not the "be an ignorant prick" forum. Go to OTD or something and quit wasting our time.

Just remember the basic P.I.E chart to figure out problems like this. "P" =Power(Watts) "I"=Current (Amps) "E"=Volts.
P=IxE . There's no argument..Understand and use this formula . This is'nt my opinion,its the facts.

Please don't tell me you're a computer tech too... I happen to have 9 years experience building computers, and you most definitely, without a doubt, undeniably CAN* have multiple hard drives in any IBM compatible computer built after 1979 or so (or before - who knows). It's something I have done many times in years past with my own computer, as one hard drive fills up fast.

Oh..I beleive your fan died,really.But as for your explanation as why..I'm telling you its just not possible.Now if you were to tell me that you used an excessive voltage supply..OK, sure. Really,I'm telling you the truth.If you understood basic electronics you would laugh your ass of at the statements you made. I'm not trying to call you stupid..Just saying that your interpretation (sp?) as to why your fan died is incorrect.

Hey buddy, just read this here quote of yours over and over and over to yourself... That'll save me from having to waste any more time replying to you.

You can also check this link to read a bit about multiple hard drive installations: http://training.csd.sc.edu/bulletin/june01/bulletin/harddrive.asp

And now I'll leave this horribly ruined thread as well. Hopefully the original poster can find the help he was looking for. (And hopefully StainItBlue can get the help he needs.)

I build computers for a living and you can have two HD in one computer. I have two 120 GB in mine all you have to do is set one as a slave drive that one will hold everything like files and movies,pictures, programs you don't use much. the other is your master that has your operating system on it and the shit you use most. I have dual CPU on my too. You really don't need them but it good for video editing and other shit. All with one Power supply 400W running 3 fans. Here's what else I have in it DVD rom plus dvd burner CD-rom plus burner 3.5 floppy,250 MB aip drive.Gforce 4 video card , Sound blaster platinum,6 usb plug all work, Tv card so I can watch movies on my 53" flat screen that sweet. OH yeah my CPU are Pent 4 2.5G I have my own small business building and fixing PC. So if you never need a fast good comptuer talk to me.

Whoa!! Damn dude..That sounds like one hellofa computer. I was going to get into computer repair right after trade school,but kids came along and I was'nt willing to work as an entry level tech..Went to the factories where I had health care insurance and started out at a higher pay level. I'm sure I would be making more right now if I would of stuck with the original idea..but,oh well.  :frown:

Choose a wall adapter that has the proper voltage rating,12 volts.Make sure the amperage rating is = to or greater than the requirements of the fan. The wire coming from the adapter with the white stripe is positive(+),hook this up to the red fan wire,the other to the black. Make sure your fan is made for DC,some are AC..Sorry about jumping track,hope this helps.

Get radio shack in the computer part of the store or the electronic area they be on the bottum shelf. Or check out tattoo supply companys they have power supplies that would work. I used to do tats before I got married. had to pick tats or pussy the pussy won LOL

Some of the power supplies you can switch from DC to AC plus most come with a resistor

Ok the easy way walk in there and ask the piss ants working there where are the 12v power supplies at and if he asks you whats is that punch the moron in the head. The people are so stupid here I walked in one day and asked if they had any 35amp 10V capacitors he said they don't carry them I walked over and got two capacitors and showed him. The moron said oh thats what a capacitor is.

They always want to sell you a damn cell phone or dish LOL

Coma of Souls,
Check out my incubator post earlyer (yeaterday). I just used an old cordless phone power supply I had in the garage. On all the power supplys they should have the input and output voltages. Mine I am using is like 120V input and 9.6V @ 300ma output. It works good and it was free. I'm sure you got somthing laying around that will work.

As for the rest of you,
If you know Ohms Law great! But dont try to teach it Here!!! Most guys will never get it.

and Yes there are dual cpu boards, they have been around for a long time.

OK... technically, you can't have 2 HD's running off the same processor if it is a "common" processor (e.g. consumer processors like the intel p4 (excluding apps built and ran on a P4 HT), amd athalon xp, etc....) that can only run one process at a time. However, you can *most definitely" have more than one hard drive at a time. Any home pc can handle this. In the industry, we have this nifty thing called RAID. RAID stands for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks. The easies way to explain what this does is as follows: use many disks (connected to the same board) to maintain data integrity. e.g. in the most simple RAID setup, one disk is a mirror of the other - such that if the first disk fails, the second has the data.

But whats the point again?

I have four optical drives and three hard drives running off of a 300w Aopen power supply. While in all actuality they cannot run at the exact same time with one CPU you as a human would not be able to tell because of how fast a CPU spurts out instructions.

Oh and you can run a fan on just the powersupply but all ATX power supplies are made to only work with a motherboard connection so you will need to short the green wire on the motherboard harness to a black ground.

You can get a 250w PS for $12 shipped by checking here:

PriceWatch.com

I will not vouch for the quality of these devices but it should be just fine for a few fans. Also I would not do any of this unless you are familiar with basic electricity and computers.

One more thing is to make sure you get a pass-through molex connector for your fan if it does not already have one. These are the white connectors that plug into your harddrives and optical drives. You will need the male end so you can hook it up to the power supply. Best bet is just to buy a fan that already has these attached.

Sorry for being so vague and misleading - too high last night I gues :-) What I was trying to say is that your CPU will not be able to use 2 HDs at *exactally* the same time since most processors can only run one process/thread at a time. You can of course do things on different drives "at the same time" merely because you computer is fast enough to manage accessing both of the drives without you knowing it.
