Default Fan for tower?

I have been seeing threads around about putting a fan in a tower. I am just finishing up converting my Sanyo 4912 (and i just found out my friend had one he would have sold to me for $10! ) and wondering if i would really need one of these in my tower. How much would one help me?

Those that have them installed swear by them. I didn't install one and I get great pours and good beer.

Yes. and a lot.

I use a little 1.5" or 2" computer fan. The type often used for things like video cards. 12v power pack of some lost electronic item to power it. Just ran the 2 little wires into the fridge to the fan.

Something like these would work: http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g36/c15/s70/list/p1/Fans-12_Volt_Fans-40mm_x_10mm_Fans-Page1.html?id=mhzj3WhE


I may not be an expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express........ 6 months ago.
