Hi,
I'm understand mosfet based amps throw a lot of heat. and with 7 in one chassis it gets a tad warm.. it's got plenty of space around it 5" above and 3" per side at the cabinet face and 10" at the widest points on the sides (corner cabinet), BUT I also know heat is never good for electronics..
My question is use of a fan , like a whisper quite computer fan, but what to power it and not induce noise into the cables/speaker wires/ect
or am I over thinking this. as far as the power supply and noise.
I know in car audio you never run the signal input cables/speaker wires along side the power wires, not sure if it applies to a power supply like from a computer that's basically an a/c to d/c converter

I figure with a computer based power supply I can power the fan and my radio antenna booster
