i'm trying to decide on whether or not to use two fans at the top for exhaust or one fan for intake at the bottom and one for exhaust at the top. if i use two fans powered by one adjustable 12v power supply, are there any particular specs i need to look for to power two fans, or would any old adjustable 12v PS do the trick?
i'm really leaning towards two exhaust fans at the top though, b/c of the limited amount of airspace above the DVR. i would imagine two would move twice the air and keep it cool.
also pondering the thermostatically controlled fans for efficiency, but i'm not try to dump a lot of money into the fan setup, like the $100 pre-made units you can buy. after all, they're just fans for God's sake.
lastly, Scythe, or artic cool? dual 80's turned down with the PS, or a single 120?
