So my Xbox one PSU died and microsoft doesn't sell official ones yet, so I bought a third party one and the fan that is in it is a 12V blower fan with 2 wires running right to the board (it says 12V right on the fan). So obviously one of the wires is ground and the other is 12V. So I need help determining what would be the best method to lower the voltage to around 7-9V.
(The reason I'm trying to drop it is because this thing is extremely loud and pretty much unbearable, it runs cold all the time so I do not think heat will be an issue here, if it is I'll buy a new PSU)
So here is a photo of the set up: Album with pictures in it
How do you think I should go about doing this (resistors, diodes, I have no problem installing or trying anything, I was thinking a 25 ohms resistor with a rating of at least 5 watts).
