    Aerogate3 Cooling Fan Controller

    Hi all! Noob question here. I'd like to use the aerogate3 to monitor and cool my car audio amps, and I'm trying to figure out how best/safe to kook the controller (comes with 4-pin molex PS connector) to the car battery. Do I need the DC-DC Regulator? Thanks!

    I'm not familiar with the aerogate3 (quick search shows it's a temp/fan monitor/controller?) but if it's expecting clean power from a PSU, you should regulate the car power. Also, if it uses 5V (4-pin molex carries both 12V and 5V), you would need to use a voltage step-down.

    I'd ask why you're connecting it directly to the battery rather than the PSU (you do/will have a computer, right? ), but I'm sure you have your reasons.
