Question Can I use computer fans in my TV cabinet?

I know, weird question. But my home theatre system is all enclosed inside a cabinet downstairs, and airflow is minimal. I was thinking of buying two 90mm or 120mm computer case fans and mounting them inside the cabinet, but how would I power them? Is there another alternative that I can use that might use batteries or an electrical outlet?

The reason I'm considering case fans is because of their low profile design and relative flatness, which is a must for my cabinet.


Intel Q6600 @ 3204Mhz ~ Tuniq Tower 120 ~Corsair XMS2 5GB ~ WD VelociRaptor 150GB Main ~ WD 1TB Black ~ EVGA 8800GTS 640MB ~ 7 Home Premium (64-Bit)

yep there is no reason why you cant do that,

they can be powered by batteries and will obviously require some cutting of wires, jus check the voltage of the fans and but the correct resitors and youd be fine
