Adding a fan to your Raspberry Pi is one of the best and easiest ways to cool your Pi project. This fan plugs right into the GPIO pins on your Pi to power up, giving you a low-cost, effective cooling solution for your favorite credit-card sized computer. Whatever your project is, it's likely that installing a fan will help increase the performance of your Raspberry Pi.
This fan comes ready to rumble, with a female connector attached that can plug directly into the 5V/GND pins on your Raspberry Pi's GPIO Pins. Just set the fan up to push/pull air in the direction you need (there are some small arrows on the side of the fan that help orient yourself). We usually see people set their fans up just above the Main SoC (the CPU) for the most effective cooling.
We've had experience with cooling Raspberry Pi's and wrote a handy guide on the methods and best practices for your to cool your own project effectively. We go over fans, heat-sinks, cases and more.
While active cooling (with a fan) is better than passive cooling, small fans have a humming noise due to the speed they operate at. If silent operation is a factor for your Raspberry Pi, then instead consider a passive cooling case.
