Hi All!

I have a Deep Cool Multi Core x8 Cooler Pad. It runs at 1300RPM, but i am not satisfied in the cooling that i get.

Is there a way of increasing the cooler pad's RPM?

here are the Specs

Rated Voltage: 5VDC
Operating Voltage: 4.5~5VDC
Staring Voltage: 4VDC
Rated Current: 0.2±10%~0.4±10%A#sthash.UJWrnd5W.dpuf
Power Input: 1~2W
Fan Speed: 1300±10%RPM

For a 5V fan (which is what voltage is supplied via USB), there's not much you can do. I suppose it's possible to modify them to run from a higher voltage power source (12v)- and control it with a rheostat... It will work well for a little while, but you will certainly destroy the fans if they are only rated to 5V. :)
