Default A great fan if you need help cooling your amp

I know some people have issues cooling their amps so thought I would share this.

I bought the AC Infinity MULTIFAN S4, Quiet 140mm USB Fan for Receiver DVR Playstation Xbox Computer Cabinet Cooling off of Amazon.

It sits on rubber feet, has Low/Med/High settings from an off fan control and runs off a USB plug (could be wired direct of course).

This thing puts out a huge amount of air and is so very quiet you don't know it is on on the first two settings and I have to get my ear next to the amp to hear the high setting and that's with the amp off. It sits 1" high so you don't need a huge amount of vertical space for it. I believe they do a smaller footprint 120mm fan too.

I built my TSE with some space underneath the PCB to help airflow and some vents in the top plate to let the heat out (I also used larger than recommended heatsinks where required). The air from the fan can be felt on the low setting passing through the vents on the top plate.
