Like the idiot I am, I fried the fan control on my eBit miner when I was trying to repair a broken fan on it. (I had a bad crimp on one of the pins that I didn't notice until it was too late, saw the spark once it turned on and immediately shut it down.)

However, the miner works perfectly fine, just with no fan so it quickly gets to it's shutoff point of 70C.

I have the right kind of fan, high static pressure, all that good stuff, and I wanted to wire it externally and just run it at 100%.

Has anyone wired up something like this? It's your standard 4 pin high powered, 12v, 3amp fan - so those case fan to USB converters definitely won't power that.

Any tips from the pros on here?

I use in-line PCI-e adapters that have a fan plug wired in. Used to use them to provide extra cooling for Avalon 6's

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

That'd be exactly what I'd want - do you have a link to those, or did you just make them?
