Fan Controller: How do I make one?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I need to make my own fan controller so I can fit the switches where I need them. I have the soldering skills to do it but I don't know which parts to purchase and how to wire them.

I have an old fan controller but it's a bit difficult to trace the circuits and replicate it. So what parts would I need to purchase and can anyone draw up a schematic in paint as well?

I'm looking for a simple circuit with a three prong switch for 7V, 12V, and OFF. I would also like to add a bi-color LED for the different settings of the switch.

I'll be purchasing the parts from Radio Shack. I most likely have the resistors already but I'll need to buy any other parts.

Thank you.

Looking at his schematic its seems like he just basically did the 7v mod through the PSU but added an LED and switch. From my research everyone says its a bad idea and could damage your PSU.

Thanks for the link.
