These automotive fans usually have multiple speeds, ranging from ~1000 rpms to as high as ~5000 rpms. Since your going to be running it off of some sort of power supply your going to need to figure out how much amperage its going to draw. You might be able to use a computer psu, but its more then likely going to have to be dedicated. Send info on the fan and we will go from there.
On a second thought, your going to need to also rethink your reducer for your radiator. Is that a barb wrapped in pluming tape? Its kinda hard to tell. Im not sure if thats going to be strong enough to hold pressure.
It is called a va18-ap10/c-41a 12v low profile puller. It has a waterproof motor & and is balanced like a wheel, with a little weight. I think at 2200cfm you need 24v; 1330 at 13v , 8.5a , 7.5psi static pressure.
The spec sheet pdf:
At 13v 15psi-0cfm-8a, 7.5psi-1330cfm-8.5a, 0psi-2200cfm-7.5a
The power supply is an Antec Truepower 2.0 550w. Dual 12v rails 19a max each, 36a combined total, 530watt combined total.
Can I just splice it into the one of the 12v rails?
I also have a D5 running on this, but no other fans, I have a 10" Honeywell normal "table" fan, which seems to have very high static pressure pointed at the rad on the wall socket. Hottest core on the 920 d0 is 47c at 3.6GHz so it was fine for the moment.
The plumbers tape is over rtv sealant which had a small weeping leak, it stopped it. I have already been using it, it works fine for the moment, but it needs to be improved upon greatly, yes.
Edit: The highest indicated
temperature on any one core was 47c at 3.6 GHz. If there is anything that the "Truth about voltages & TjMax" thread, it's that an indicated temp of 47c can only be considered "under 50c" according to Intel, so it could be even cooler, but probably
not much warmer imo.Edited by Clockadile Dundee - 8/16/09 at 5:00pm
