just make a splitter cable to take some power from the floppy connector. you can make a temperature sensor quite easily if you've had soldering experience to make the fans quiet when not needed. someone else on here has done just that.
Thx for your reply. I don't have any soldering skills, but squeezing a fan inside the A1200 might be possible. I still have a cable which connected to the floppy drive and the same cable has a connector to power a 3,5 inch HD. But I'm using cf-hd's now. Could I use this cable for powering a small fan? And can you give me any tips on where to get this fan?
Can you post a picture btw? I'm curious to see how this looks like.
