How to connect a 10v dc fan to the raspberry pi 2

So i've been thinking, based on the GPIO layout that is used on the pi 2, I can see that there are 2 5v outputs and one ground. Is there a way that I could connect one of those larger 10v DC fans to the raspberry pi instead of this small and noisy 5v fans?. The goal of this would be to increase airf...

So I've been thinking, I'm planning on using my pi 2 on the maximum setting for overclocking 24/7. And based on what I've observed so far, the pi does get pretty hot :oops: at maximum processing power. Now, I don't own a case yet for my pi, and i do plan on getting one and, most of the cases i've se...
