    I was wondering here I have a MIC502 which is a fan IC, my fan is a 12V 60mA fan but I was looking at the spec sheets and it says the max output (sink) is 10mA... If that's the case the chip is going to burn up? and If it does not my airflow is hardly going to be anything..

    Sounds about right? I'm thinking about doing away with that now.

    Thanks I must of missed that one, all I have on hand is a IRF510 which should be good.
