  Fan (aficionado) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fans focus more of their time and resources intently on a specific area of interest then a non-fan would, and are not significantly concerned if non-fans (including family or friends) don't derive pleasure from the area of interest.
Fans usually have a strong enough interest that small to major changes in their lifestyles are made to accommodate devotion to the focal object.
Otakus are fans focused on anime and manga.

Fan is assumed by dictionaries to be an abbreviation of fanatic, though there seems to be no evidence of any intermediate stages of development of the one from the other.
Fanac is short for “fan activities”; and the desperately politically incorrect femmefan is a female SF fan (as in Fallen Angels by Niven, Pournelle and Flynn: “Downstairs in one of the function rooms, he found Dinsby in a circle of femmefans surrounding Gordon”).

 Review: Y.S. Tech TMD fan
Different fan manufacturers make fans with somewhat different blade profiles and somewhat different motor designs and various other points of differentiation, but all normal computer fans are similar in their basic architecture.
The mike's quite close to the fan for this recording, which means it sounds rather more like a jet car than it does in real life, at least if you don't have your ear close enough to the fan that it's trying to eat your hair.
Fan speed monitoring lets you run software that'll sound an alarm or shut down if a fan stops turning, which is better than some other systems for dealing with dud fans.

When choosing parameters for the minimum and maximum fan speed, try to set them by hand (disable all the VARIATE FANs checkboxes) and listen to the noise.

When you have properly identified which temperature sensor is which, try to lower the speed of each fan and look at reported speed and temperatures.
