Need help choosing a fan controller

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm on the lookout for a fan controller that looks good in my case, and can handle all my fans.

Ideally, it would be a 4 channel fan controller, that would handle 7 fans this way:

Channel 1 - 3x AP15 Gentle Typhoons
Channel 2 - 1x Corsair 140mm fan + 1x AP15 GT
Channel 3 - 1x Corsair 140mm fan
Channel 4 - 1x Corsair 140mm fan

A black faceplate is a must, so that it goes well with the Obsidian 800D. Would something like the Scythe Kaze Master be able to handle this, or do I need to look for something else?


Many thanks

I think the Scythe or any other Zalman controller could handle this. But I don't know about multiple fans plugging into a single channel, though. Check to see if you have fan headers on your MoBo.

I have a Lamptron FC-5 v2 and it can handle a few fans per channel

You can change the colour of the LCD to suit
