I'm using a couple of ordinary PC fans connected to a General Temperature Machine to cool my greenhouse. To protect the rather delicate fans from rain I created this customisable shroud.

Very cool!
I will have to experiment with some greenhouse ventilation ideas I have after seeing this!

Thanks! I found these rather inexpensive (although this Noctua is a bit on the exclusive side) PC fans to work pretty well to keep the temperature down. This fan moves 130 m3/h which in this case means the entire air volume is replaced 18 times per hour. I started out simple by just connecting the fan to a solar cell (very self regulating), then I added a battery, and then I went bananas with the temperature machine ;)
