Budget E-Fan upgrade

What do you guys think? It's compact and pretty budget oriented if you have some spare towers around. I'll let you know how it works.

We should just file this one under "Adventures in Junkyarding". It was in a Ranger too.

Makes me proud.

I have to say that if you used the right PC fans, you could truly make that work.
although it would be pretty loud as some of the fans Ive used are high in the DB range, and 20 or more would be much louder than a stock e-fan by far.
