The connector from the power supply circuit board has five wires, two black, two red (5vdc) and one white wire (13.14vdc). I would definitely not put anything on the white wire 13.14vdc. The fan is 5vdc.
btw I am running a test, I am recording and plan to record for about 8 hours. So far the temperatures are such:
The hottest hole outlet I can find is where it would be expected, on a side opening of the power supply about middle of the enclosure, not on the top.
The air coming out of the openings on the processor side are only running about 8-9 degrees above ambient, not a factor at all.
The amperage rating on the hard drive I am using is .60 amps.
Here are the readings so far on the P/S side:
................. amb(in)... out
+30 min.....81.3....... 97.4
+60 min.....81.7....... 98.8
+90 min.....81.9....... 98.4
You can see the fan is keeping it cool, almost just the temperature of your hand. I doubt any of the components are over 110 degrees.
I believe the temperatures have stabilized and will not change much at all unless I let the ambient increase.
