there are a ton of threads about this. use the search feature.

and hooking it up to the computer is ok if you use the computer, otherwise just use any ac->dc apapter that is rated for 12v. small electronics power cords, telephones charger cords, shit like that.

just make sure the air flow is the direction you want it. some computer fans will work both ways while some will not work if polaridy is wrong.

do a google search for "power supplies cuircuit" if your electoniclly inclined. building one is easy but buying a wall plung in transformer is much easier.

red wire is 12V, black is ground. Sometimes theres a third wire. Don't worry about that one, it tells the RPM of the fan.

you can also attach 3V or 5V instead of a 12V line. This will slow the fan down and make it quieter.

The airflow generally goes in the direction of the sticker. Does that make sense? If you hold the fan in your hand, and stretch out your arm, so that the sticker side is facing away from you, the air will be blowing away from you.
