So I want to add a second fan to my ouya, and power it off the ouya, so what I am asking is, can i just splice into the existing fan wires? and run a second fan right off there?

that way it should only kick on when it needs it too, instead of always on, which is what I'm guessing would be the case if I just had to solder something to the board somewhere.

anyway, I do have a cool little mod cooking here which I will post pictures of when done.

Yes i wish to know how to add a second fan too

I cheap way of getting better ventilation is to put the ouya on top of something like this is a usb fanhttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/07/17/be4ebyge.jpg

If your not afraid to try, I'de pull the power from the usb (from the inside board) and only split the ground from the fan so they kick in in sync. Also, usb only supplies 5v if I'm not mistaking, so keep that in mind when you are shopping for your second fan.

Why not upgrade the internal one like others have done, I will be doing it soon also.
