Antec TriCool Fan with 3-Speed Switch (DIY Stir Plate, Kegerator Circulation)

Antec TriCool 92mm Cooling Fan with 3-Speed Switch

Antec TriCool 92mm Cooling Fan with 3-Speed Switch from Antec.

Possible uses include… putting together a DIY Stir Plate and using this for a recirculating fan in your kegerator – See: Kegerator Beer Line Temperatures & Reducing Foam with a Recirculating Fan  The three speed switch may come in handy for a DIY stir plate build.  Depending on your setup, it could possibly negate the need for a speed/control potentiometer in a stir plate build.

Update from HBF Reader Dave: Have used this for a stir plate setup… totally don’t need a potentiometer (speed controller) – just use the high-med-low.
