    I'm thinking of putting a higher CFM or quieter on my S3. It looks like it's a 70 mm fan.

    I'm wondering if it'd be possible to rig it to blow at full speed.

    Tap into a 12 volt line on the power supply.

    My question is why? Constant temperatures are more important than "colder." If the fan speed settings are working properly then the Tivo should be able to keep the temp constant regardless of ambient changes.

    I just don't feel comfortable with it running at 50C.

    Takes 1 minute to change the fan out.

    Maybe I enjoy doing this sort of thing?

    I have a perfect question for you. Are you also the type of person who removes or would want to remove the thermostat from the car because you don't feel comfortable with it running at 82C?
