Fan in av cabinet.

I'm searching for a fan that I can cool the inside of an AV cabinet that has my cable box, AV receiver, DVD, and gaming system in it. Can anyone suggest a product that will do the job?

They make rack mounted cooling enclosures for what you are wanting.


Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?

Most people use computer case fans, the 120mm variety, to ventilate existing furniture AV cabinets. You can buy them pre-rigged for that very purpose or you can hook up your own if your handy with wiring.

These guys make a variety:

I would stick with 120mm if you have the space. They move more air and are quieter than the 80mm.
