In this instructable I took a USB cable and a old computer fan and made the fan USB compatable.
Cut the USB cable to the desired length. Then Strip the cable so you see 4 wires. Cut or isolate the green and white wires. Now strip the red and blac...
Twist the red wires with each other and the black wires with each other. Now your done, plug in and be cooled down.

Thanks. This is exactly what I was looking for. I have an old liquid cooling cpu unit that I used to make a makeshift airconditioning coil to put in front of a fan. the unit is 4 pin and i wanted to power it with the computer via usb so it can pump the liquid through my coil.
It's great! I made it, though instead of a USB Cable, I used a power cable that goes strait into the socket.
I don't feel like taking a picture, but I made it! It's actually pretty nice for cooling off my hand as I use my computer because one of the corners gets hot.
Made this to help keep my ASUS laptop cool! Thanks for the help! Hooked it up to my cookie cooler stand! :) Geek Chic! LOL
