Any pics or other useful info would be appreciated. Thanks
the 3 racing fans/heatsink are 7.2volt, if you run them to the reciever (you will need to change the plug, it will run slow as and not do much and you will think you wasted your money, you need to go direct to battery power (how ever you can that is conveniet for you) it will run much better as it will have the correct voltage, (also note that the fan takes a minute or so to kick in , it will start slow and build up speed in the first 1 minute or so)
i have posted a pic of mine, (and i turned the fan around so it blows into the can , as sucking tended just to suck from the edges of heatsink not through the can, and just reversing the wires doesnt work, it will not run at all).
hope this helps
