Actually they wire the fan to 5V, which is just about enough to run it (some of the models can't start below 6V, but the more experienced guys know which ones to avoid). A 16" fan will spit out just...

From what I've been told, it's the price factor. Typically a radiator fan will have excellent airflow relative to the power requirements, and will cost next to nothing at a car junkyard.

In my personal experience repairing PCs, I'd say you can usually get away with a relatively crappy PSU on an "office" PC with a power draw in the 40-100W range. It's simply hard to make the PSU so...
