How and where to connect the fan?

Postby aihaike » Wed Aug 06, 2014 6:14 am

Hey,

I'm wondering where should I connect the fan.
I've attached part of my setting.
Thank you,

Éric.

There are no connections specifically for a fan. You can power one via the mounting hole pads if you solder J15. Others have taken different approaches and if you do a search you will find relevant posts.

I found a nice fan that has a USB Type A connector - I then scrounged up a Type A male USB to Type A female cord and a USB phone charger, Viola! 48C max temperature. For giggles, you can find AA battery boost boards with a USB Type A female connector on them and power your fan off of that. I can run 2xAA for a whole day before having to replace batteries.

Cheers,
Ed
