I have two JMC/DATECH DS9238-12HBTL fans that I am using on a Thermaltake CL-P0024 Copper Cooling Heatsink. These fans have a thermal diode located just above the center mount. The hotter the temps the faster the fan spins. Thing is, at full speed these 92X25MM fans are supposed to move about 121 CFM of air. I want to run them both at full speed regardless of the C-130 level of noise. How can I mod/remove the diode so that the fan gets 100% power 100% of the time?

Good question. Use a regular resistor that gets hot end glue that to the diode? Find out if the diode is a short at high temperatures?
