    I have a mini fan hooked up to my receiver so when the receiver is turned on it automatically starts. Is there anyway that a thermostat can be hooked up so when a certain temperature is reach it would turn on. I noticed that I have an extra wire on the Fan, which I think can be used for this purpose.

    You should be able to get a sensor somewhat like the old thermostats which could turn the fan on. I have a fan installed on the back of my entertainment center that is plugged into my receiver so when it is on, the fan is on. I'm still trying to tweat it quiet it down.

    The third wire on a fan (of the 12volt variety) is usually used to provide RPM feedback to a computer motherboard. Use a 7.5 or 9 volt transformer from an old cordless phone or portable radio, etc. to create a very quiet fan.
