Thanks guys.

Wow, 450ma is a lot of current for a 40mm fan. I have 120mm case fans that use less. That fan must move a lot of air. The castle fan says 160ma, but max voltage is 7.4.

I would think any 12v 40mm computer fan would work fine. They seem to range from about 1500-6000rpm at 12v. I would think 8.4v would be perfect.

Honestly doubt it's really 450mA. That is a lot, as you said.
