look at those box adapters that recharge cell phones or answering machines or even a nintendo. On it you will see the input voltage and the output voltage. The output voltage has to be in dc volts. anywhere from 9 to 12 volts is needed for both fans to run with enough power. It will only run if the wires are hooked up the right way. So if you hook up the wires and it doesn't work, change your wiring around. Use tape to cover the bare wires. Be careful.

Exactly But make sure that the output voltage on the transformer is DC not AC, and at least .500 Ma.

This works pretty well pyro2006, this is how I make mine^^. Take a can of air and clean them out real well, especially if they've been sittin in an old pc. .lol It will also help cut down on the noise they can make. . . :cool027:
