Im wondering, i would like to link 2 extra fans together and power through the mains, they both are 12v. How can i power the fans. I tried using a normal 12v power cord which was for a ps2 lool but i got no power. I think i need to convert the mains power from ac to dc but im not 100%. I am new to technology. Sorry for my newbieness :(

The fans are powered by DC motors. Do not apply AC.

Why dont you plug the extra fans into a spare molex line?
