A thread on making resistors is here
The resistor wires used for the Zalman ZM-F3 are now available individually. I'll try to find the link. The reason this is important is that the ZM-F3 draws 0.35 Amps, so that it has a fat resistor. The Noctuas draw only 0.1A, so other fans too easily make the resistor too hot. But with the Zalman drawing so much more, using other fans is usually not a problem.
Edit: Found it: ZM-RC56
(free shipping at SVC). 7V.
Edit: 10V resistor cable here
. The example they use is a fan that draws 0.33A, so it should be able to handle most fans.Edited by ehume - 8/21/11 at 4:43am
