Cheers Guy's, in answer to your question ex pat I have tried to wire the fan direct to the battery and I have the same problem every now and again the fan fails to start running just twitches. If it's not 99 % reliable I won't chance using it in a HL especialy my new RX 18 boards. Not so worried about the RX 14's I am using in earlier models as I have 5v x 60mm fans onboard these blast out a lot of cool air. Thank you Tailend charlie I will be checking out the site you have found. Checked out the link Tailend charlieand found lot's of 25mm fan's as you said. Then serched some more and found 5v 17mmx17mmx10mm fan's at Maplins and all for Â£4.99 each. Hope this is of use to someone. All the best for now
