    I don't have a hovabator, but I put a PC fan in my home built. What do you want to know? Location? How to power it?

    Quote:I just pulled a fan out of an old PC then I found a call phone charger in a drawer at the house. The charger is 6 volts and the the fan is 12, but it works. I simply cut of the end that plugs into the cell phone stripped the wires and twisted it together with the fan wires. With a low voltage system like that it wont shock you so I never even bothered to tape the wires. Take a look at the video that alicefelldown linked to and it should give you ideas about where to put it and what you need to improvise to hold it in place.
