    I have one sitting under my Tubelab SE and it is inaudible and moves a good lot of air.
    Thanks Morris. The 'inaudible' bit is very important as I'm gonna need 2. I'd been looking at the range but they are quite a bit I more expensive

    Made a fan controller a few weeks ago on Martin F5 turbos
    we have to use 140 mm fans due to sink size
    200mm would be much better
    speed controller is quite simple all you need is a mosfet a thermistor and a trimmer
    all info is on my thread The bug is back

    That reminded me of the “Turbulent Juice”, commercials on Rick and Morty!
