    Fan overclocking results

    Well, there was some stuff recently posted at hardocp about messing around with fan voltages, and not being able to resist the opportunity to mess around with my computer I decided to do some experimentation. I used a cheapo fan rated at 12 volts from an old power supply. The logical thing would be to run it at 17V (12 and -5), but that did not sound too appealing, so I started it up directly at 24V. Holy crap this thing spins fast! This normally pathetic fan is now a high-perfomance equivalent. I've had it on for 24 hours now and it hasn't showed any problems yet. I am curious as to how far any of you have pushed your fans - 26, 28, 32 volts anyone? How many volts does it take to kill one of these things?

    Newer tried any stunt like that my self. In fact, I'm running my 12V fans at 5V and I'm afraid that if I did something like that my whole case would start hoovering...

    I've managed to ramp a 12V graphics fan to 30V, but it took off (literally) - I forgot to tie it down - and flew of the desk, and then smashed itself to bits on the floor.
    Quite an impressive airflow though......
