Help with 12V and 5V. - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Yeah if startup current at 12V is 1.4A that sounds pretty safe to me. I've yet to see a typical computer axial ball-bearing 12V nominal fan not start up on 5V either, but I don't really poke around the high-speed stuff much (at all), so I was just making sure.

For me, it's currently enrolled. And I don't even want to think about how much longer I'll still be enrolled. doh.gif But I haven't done any circuits, motors, or analog stuff in general since my undergrad days.

If you have a spare PSU available you can short the green wire on the 20/24pc ATX connector with an adjacent black wire and run any number of fans off it.
No need to use a PC at all.
To make a bridge, cut a piece off a colored paper clip, strip the coating off each end and bend it in two.
