Default Need a 12V Powersupply

I need a 12V powersupply just to power a few fans.... and hopefully rather small... Any ideas? basically, I killed the fan header on my Xbox 360's board.... Right now I am using a jumped 450W antec, but I think it is a little ugly and overkill...

just get one of those radio shack specials and adapt it, how many mA you need?

I might have a few...

I'm using a small one that plugs into a wall socket to run a 120mm fan for circulation around my woodstove, I dunno what it was off of ( phone charger?) but it puts out 12v @ 2 amps so it should run a few...
I think any 9v or 12 one should work well enuff.

Exactly what I was going to suggest. I'm sure you could pick up a cheap 12v or even 9v adapter, solder it to a header or something.
