Good fan control, for 3 fans on rad?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I saw this one, was thinking about it.

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=30057

Really only care about controlling the 3 fans on the radiator which are 5400 rpm fans, there going to be loud without a controller. And when I go to work, sleep etc will want to tone down there noise without completely shutting them down.

Any advice.

3 of these.

But only one radiator because I want to keep my loop simple for 2600k and dual 580s. So will want the airflow in my HAF X case so that the rad stays nice and cool.

Though as I said when I go to work or sleep or whatever will want to turn the voltage down.

I assume your referring to AP-31's each pulling about ~15-18w per channel, so you're good to go.

Well the fan controller listed in OP, the RPM knobs control voltage correct?

Or just specific RPMs? Ive never used a fan controller before, just stuck them in there and let them do there thing.

They look good,

I've been looking at the 6 Channel version of that for my HAF X and Rasa water kit (bought but not yet installed)

the Looks are bang on for a HAF X and the 30W per channel will mean you can run 3 fans of the one channel, if a 3 fan to one header cable can be found.
