However, after taping up the wires you notice the fan is actually running in reverse (blowing air out the way the air should be taken in, etc).
Think anything bad can come from that?
And as opposed to just using the tie up/electrical tape method do you think I should go the full monty and try to solder it?

From what I know, as long as the voltage of the adapter isn't more than the voltage of the fan, you're good. So as most fans are 12volt, you can use adapters that are 12v on down, but the lower the voltage of the adapter the less power the fan gets and hence the slower it'll spin.
So you cut the end off of an AC adapter, and the end off of a fan wire. Then tie the positives together and negatives together, make sure it runs, then use electrical tape to tape everything up. Then you're good.

haha, I'm on some mad scientist rampage. The fans aren't for my computer. I'd tell you, but then I'd have to...steal your 16 cpu core rig and use it to power my neighborhood!

Does anyone have the number to Homeland Insecurity. This definitely sounds like something they would be interested in knowing...talker.
