    Default What fans on IPV-1115 and IPV-1116 Vents?

    What fans on IPV-1115 and IPV-1116 Vents? I know these are 60mm and 80mm fans but did you all go with 2-pin or 4-pin? What fans did you find to be a good value for our applications?

    I have a Kingwin 80mm on my IPV-1116
    It has 3 wires but I only use 2 (red & black) and is connected to a thermostat to switch it on and off.
    Paid 5.00 + tax on Amazon

    Very similar to what etterm above did, but I went with just 2 pin 12V fans, wired to a programmable thermostat board. It doesn't get very hot at all here in my part of Oregon so a thermostat is probably overkill but I'd rather do that than have the fan blowing full time.

    Are there any guides on how to wire a fan to the power supply? I have a Meanwell 5v power supply but a Kulp controller with no fan header. Do I just wire the fan cables directly to the power supply like the controller is wired?

    That's the way I connected my fan. Directly to power supply.

    You mean you wired the fan to the thermostat switch and then that directly to the power supply? I was thinking of doing similar but want to make sure i don't blow anything out.

    Basically order this and wire the power supply and fan to the blue ... socket?

    Yes. That's exactly how I did mine, only I used 12V instead of 5V.

    If you are concerned with air flow drill out the holes on the vent a bit bigger, the air is so restricted it cant move much, no mater how powerful your fans are. For a normal controller you shouldn't need more then a little air flow to cover the heat load.

    I recently built a projector inclosure and needed air flow, two vents in and two vents out. I was able to double the air flow after drilling the vents holes out and sanding down the burs.

    As for a thermostat controlled fan, I use these; 5v or 12v

    This is how mine is controlled. I haven't mounted it yet as I need to make a mounting plate that I will probably end up using Velco to attach it to door side of enclosure.
