    Some of you may have seen my other post regarding my upcoming Incubator build. I was browsing the www and came across several Computer Fan Controllers that have built in Temp probes and readouts as well as alarms for high and or low temps. I was wondering if I pull a power supply out of an old computer if I could use one to keep an eye on temps in my incubator and control some small computer fans to help move air and raise or lower the humidity.

    I am thinking of something like this http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4146021&Sku=A406-1103
