    Told you all i would be asking questions. What direction is best for the fan to blow? Toward the wall or toward the inside of the bator.
    Also is it best for the fan to be on the other end from the light?
    Thank You 4est

    the one I made is actually an induction fan. Sucks air from across the bator and exhausts across the sides sending a swirling effect without making a cold spot. used a fan from the bottom of a junked out laptop and left in the 6" long heat sink to make this work.
