I'm having an entertainment center built that will house my receiver, DirecTV box, and DVD player. I'm installing 80mm fans (Enermax UC-8EB) to create airflow through the cabinet. I'm wondering if there's an easy way to install in in-line thermal sensor that would switch the fans on and off at a given temp. The fans themselves are already really quiet, but I'm assuming that the baffles they'll be blowing over will create some noise. Ideas?

Just let the fans run. The equipment needs airflow at all times. Don't block the cooling vents, anywhere.
For fans there must be an intake and exhaust.
