Calling all electricans...

I wonder if you can buy these "thermal sensors" at a store like Radio Shack? Fans

I like the idea of the variable speeds but sont like the idea of being charged 10x what the part really costs :D

Thanks in advance....

You can buy thermisters a Radio Shack but for that price I would'nt. You can also use a nsc LM348 and an intelligent controller to control fans, heater lighs or whatever.

I have mine from IceCap, I leave it on 24/7 no problems. Honestly I can't say which would be better, that seems like a good price for thermal control, but if you want to DIY then I see nothing wrong with just going down to the Shaq & pick up a couple fans and set up your own control on them.
