well the power it'll just plug straight into the wall via AC i think or DC iono maybe neither but its just a standard plug and the noise i dont really care man
im in a band and im half deaf so its all good :) my pop is getting me a new blade tommorow :)

wow those things have some high CFM ratings.. you can destench a bathroom in a few minutes and think of how many cubic feet a bathroom is.. :)

Hahah sounds pretty ghetto to me. Gonna be loud but I bet it moves alot of air. Even if it was DC it would prolly suck alot of power so its probably a good thing its AC.

they're AC, and noisy. if you could get one of a high enough rating, you could probably use a light dimmer for a speed controller. they are noisy, but sometimes have a filter on it. a quick at lowes.com shows that they arent all that much air flow, 130 cfm is the biggest ive seen.

hmm... well still better than a 120 mm :) its aleast 4 inches

Buy one of the Lubic kits on wheels and make an airboat case :clap:
LOL I wanna see pics pics pics!! If its at least like the one in my house, its gonna be loud very loud lol
if they aren't pushing much more then 100cfm you might as well get a high output 120 or maybe 150mm if you can find one. those ceiling fans are not designed to be on the side of a computer (obviously). you may run into problems with vibrations shaking components loose, worst thing that will happen is you'll have a big useless hole in your case, sounds like an excuse to intall a window if you ask me. good luck with that anyways.

We have this box fan thing.. well its more or less round. 2ft diamater that thing is insanely high cfm, its over 2000, I know that much. It would vent a level 5 bio hazard in 2 minuts LOL!!!!

Sorry double post.
Where are the pics!?
level five in 2 minutes? not quite, but that is some crazy airflow, although i think it has been established that using insane airflow (over 1000cfm) is not going to change the temps in a well ventilated case. i had to watch a biohazard video for my job btw.
