Compy PSU's are switched and notoriously noisy. That's not saying you can't run a pump off one, but if it doesn't have decent rail-to-rail performance you're gonna harm (and possibly blow) the PSU. Just a heads up.

I had thought of that HH.  Ruled it out quickly though. I ordered a PS from eBay for $3.  I'll just have to live without the pump in the meantime.  I've got carmstrong's immersion chiller.  That'll work for now.  

I was really close to ordering the chugger from hopdawgs the other day though.  Really close.

That's an awesome price.  Beats Hopdawgs.ca even with shipping from the US!

Chris, you don't have any orphaned power adapters kicking around?  I must have 7 or 8 kicking around from old modem and other broken gear.  As long as its 12v output, give or take a couple of volts, and 1A, you can just splice it on.

Unfortunately, I don't have one that fits the bill.  I even tried Digital World here.  No luck, and they had hundreds in a bin out back to look through.

You can find anything on the internet.

There's probably a site that sells only blue M&Ms too :)

Finally got another adapter by mail.  All fixed up now.  Time to think about another brew!

Just getting around to cleaning my pump and chiller. It never got cleaned from my last brew day in January. Recirculating boiling water for half an hour ought to help.

Fucking power supply crapped out on me again.  Luckily it happened just after I finished brewing.  I just ordered a chugger. Not dealing with this shit anymore.

I'll take your little pump if you're not going to use it :)  I have a ton of spare power supplies and could use a spare pump!

That's very generous of you fakr.  I think I'm going to hang on to it for a bit though.  Who know, I may one day resurrect it.
