Careful how many fans you add to one USB port, they are only meant to support a certain amount of voltage and current.

Nicely done. Always wanted to make one for my dad's laptop but decided to get him a 1tb drive instead.

Yes, USB are 5v. you can't get more than that through USB efficiently. If you want a 12v supply, I'd have to suggest an external.

What I meant was.... you can use a 12v adapter to run the fans, rather than USB. You'd be able to run the fan(s) at full speed, and you wouldn't be drawing from the laptop. The only drawback to this, is that it's not really portable in a sense that you can just power it off the laptop. You could add a USB end to the supply, and run the fan off that when you're at home/near mains power, and then just plug it into the laptop when you're out and about (if you really wanted to), but you'd just have to make sure not to plug any other USB devices into the 12v supply, as they'll most likely melt.
