      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Biggest computer fan you can purchase is 140mm. I would assume a cheap Vex battery should run the fan? Without doing much research I can't test / confirm this claim smile

Check into the fan power requirements. Amazon / newegg should have what you need.

I would focus more on the quietness of the fans, and look arounf the 80mm+ sizes.

Most 80mm fans that push any decent amount of air will be noisy as well. Look for a 120mm or 140mm. They will run on 12v and sometimes as low as 7v or 5v. You can add resistors to your connection with the vex style battery to run lower voltage and lower speed if you like. Or set up a rheostat for a knob you can turn.

I would try "The AxeMan" either on University or the other location. Usually good prices for darn near anything!

Newegg.com or amazon.com

Just type in 120mm fan or 140mm fan as a search term.

I hooked a few up last night to my vex battery after rummaging thru a bin. I had a sunon 80mm hooked up and it was a tornado, but it moved some serious air.

22-28decibles is a quiet noise range.

92mm or 120mm is the best i think, and one will not be sufficient. Get two at minimum.
