I bought the 11, I think either would work fine though. The 12 is bigger, but I'll try the smaller first, then decide if I need to go bigger.

Where can u get one of those magnets if u don't have an old hard drive? All the ones on eBay do not look like the ones you guys are using.

I got my 11 today and if I could do it again I'd get the larger one. The 11 will be fine for my 2000ml flask but I wanted this one for my 5000ml. I may order the order also.

How about your magnet for the fan. Where did you get that?
