I've got the LED leads from the fans back in parallel and I've also got the 12V lead from molex through the switch in parallel (I think) - but the 12V to the fan LED terminals will have a 470 ohm 1/2W resistor. According to this calculator that should bring the voltage down to 5V for the fans. If this is right, I can plug as many or as few fans onto those terminals without worrying obout overvolting.

How does this look?
i just measured the voltage that goes into the fan leds
it is at 5v



that would be the safest,
if you were to use 1 = 3 diodes that you give you 11.4 -10.2 volts
to run across (5+5) 10v

most fans need 7 volts DC to actuate. 5 volts will not be enough to make it spin.

Try 7 vdc. 9 vdc and the 12 volt DC


Here is a cool fan Comparison I found with the R4 in the running. The R4 actually had the most air pressure and CFM.

Here is my Permanent Ipod..


mine is the top one.
I used to make parts for those at one of the machine shops I used to work at... The Medtronic one that is....

Wow ... thanks for the work.. Its is functioning great!!!

Ok, so this thing is inside your chest? I've always wanted to know how do they change the batteries in the internal ones?

My V.A. went pretty well too. I always get to see the head of the Neurology department and every time I tell someone about him they say he's the best in a 500 mile radius. So, they checked me out, asked questions about how the sample meds worked then they juiced me up. I'm now on 30mg of "amphetamine-salts" twice a day. Don't you love how the V.A. always uses the generic name for the meds, C'mon guys it's "Adderall", my anti-depressant is "mirtazapine", I like the brand name of "Remeron" better, makes you think it'll improve your memory or something. I thought they were going to give me time release but he said he doesn't think it works as well.

Speaking of iPods, I thought mine was cheating at Solitare because I used to win about 1 in 4 games, then they "updated" the software and I won 35 out of 158 games. Hmmph, guess what, it wasn't the software, it was my wetware, with the new meds I'm back to winning 1 in oh, about 6. I have Tetris but it sucks the battery like a hungry Vampire.
Gotta go, gotta play FEAR 2 sometime this weekend.
I'll check for your answer before I go to bed.

There are Medtronic offices all over this state... I still make parts for them from time to time... Not the parts for there products so much anymore, but tools that they use to put them together now... It keeps me employed... lol

Never thought I would see a Medronic product on OCN.....
