Home built UST cabinet cooling.
I need some advice on running/wiring ventilation fans in a (Ikea) cabinet that houses a UST and gaming console.
My plan was to increase the air flow through the cabinet using 2 x quiet PC fans and if possible use a thermostat to controll the fans coming on/off.
Be grateful if you guys could look at the gear I have ordered from Amazon to see if I am heading in the right direction.
I have purchased.
W1209 LED Digital Thermostat Controller Temperature Temp Control Switch Module Board 12V DC -50-110°C with Waterproof Sensor Probe (Blue LED+Acrylic Case)
ARCTIC F12 - 120 mm Standard Case Fan, Ultra Low Noise Cooler, Silent Cooler with Standard Case, Push- or Pull Configuration possible, Fan Speed: 1350 RPM

From what I understand the digital thermostat controller will power both fans from the same relay so that they come on in unison to draw air in and vent air out of the cabinet. I plan to house them in the back of the cabinet positioned eother side so that the air flows in around/across the equipment and then out the other side.
The thermostat can be powered by the voltage regulator that draws power from a USB. I plan to use a USB on a power extension so that the cabinet temperature can be regulated for either piece of equipment in the cabinet
If this set up works I may add another pair of fans so that I could ensure top and bottom of the cabinet are cooled effectively. I could also think about an additional thermostat probe so that each piece of equipment has its tem monitored independently...???
What am I talking about, I'm a complete noob when it comes to electronics, wiring or anything else associated with AV to be perfectly honest... but I am enthusiastic...!!!
Any help gratefully received.
