So yes, everything he is saying is correct. Just as another point of reference, the technology they are using is technically known as PWM which stands for pulse width modulation. This technology is commonly used in car stereo amplifiers and electric fan systems such as the electric fan under the hood of your real car. Companies like Flexalite and Spal figured out that they were doing damage to their fans using a ramp up of voltage with a potentiometer. Volume controls still use ramp up technology, but it is done differently in 2010, but that is an entirely different topic of discussion.

The way the old technology worked was that lets say a car runs at 13 volts for easy discussion. To run a fan at low speed, they would put resistors and heatsinks in place to drop the voltage to 6 volts, then another option at maybe 8 volts, maybe another one for 10 volts and then high speed would have no resistor. You could adjust the speed of the fan by voltage. Hopefully this sounds familiar as it is how most of the inside air and heat systems work for climate control in a car.... The problem is that a fan designed to run at a higher voltage does not like to run at a lower voltage. It will do it, but it is not optimum. So what they figured out was if you sent a burst signal to the fan controller at full voltage, it was much less damaging than doing lower voltage. You want to control the rpm of the fan, control the speed of the pulses.

I should really go work for Tekin or Castle or Speedpassion.....

who decides what thread is "important"?... devils advocate here, but is it really necessary to have these 4 threads at the top of the screen, on every screen, all the time?
