Help with some fan stuff
Hey, I put my router and my modem as well as a few other things in my desk drawer to keep everything organized. My worry is that the devices will either get overheated or dusty. I plan on putting a fan in the drawer, because I have two holes in the back of it. I need help deciding how to set up the power control and which fan to use. I also need help finding a cheap fan. I don't want to spend a bunch of money on this project. Thanks.
P.S. I was just looking at these http://www.soselectronic.com/?str=1143 fans and they are the price range I want.

For powering the fans, most of those boxfans utilize a 12 volt DC connection through the red and black wires. The yellow wire is only for RPM monitoring.
As far as what to get, you'd want to get a fan with a high CFM rating (cubic feet per meter). Check out 12 VDC blower fans/squirrel cage fans.

Are they pretty easy to set up? I have very limited knowledge on the wiring and power.
