The fan speed is automatically controlled by the internal component temperature (speeds up as the combined load and temperature increases) via an onboard controller.  The 135mm, 9 blade Globe Fan (RL4Z-B1352512LB-3M) is rated for .28A when operating on 12 VDC.  The low speed fan incorporates dual ball bearings and runs between 700 to 1500 rpm depending on load.
