Help on fan controller choice and other things

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

1- My current case is a HAF X with 4 fans on it plus 3 fan on 360 radiator. I'm thinking in get one or two fan controllers for all those. I want something good but not very expensive $45 max, I was thinking in something like this: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/akakfancopro.html but dunno how good it's or if exist something better.

2- The second question is, for logic reasons my mobo (AMD) doesn't came with SLI bridge and I'm thinking in add another GTX 560 Ti for SLI. where I can buy a bridge for SLI? Don't worry for my PSU, I'll change it for a decent one.

3- I want sleeve the cables inside my case, but dunno how to know which size I need. Do I need sleeve wire per wire right?

4- Please, suggest another things that you think that can be better or fit my needs. FrozenCPU, Sidewindercomputers, performancepcs and Jab-Tech are the side that ship to my country (I'm not from the USA)

Thanks for your help and advices.

1) Best fan controllers i know of are:
-Sunbeam Rhobeus
-Scythe Kaze Master
-Lamptron FC series...

2)Usually most GPUs come with SLI/CF bridges...now if u want to know where to find it the best place to look is ebay or newegg..

3)U can buy sleeving from MDPC-X which are the best sleeves there are..awesome quality and about the sizes its just as simple.
U get small sleeve to sleeve:
-ATX 24-pin Cables
-ATX 4/8-pin Cables
-PCI-E 6/8-pin Cables
-Fan Cables
-Connector cables(PWR Switch, RESET Swift, LEDs etc.)

U get Sata Sleeve to sleeve:
-Sata Cables
-Audio Cables that go in your Motherboard
-USB Cables that go in your Motherboard

Also you dont need to sleeve wire per wire, u can use bigger sleeve to sleeve all wires together but that wont look as good as wiring each wire one by one. Also sleeving one by one might be a bit painful and time consuming but trust me this is totally worth it. U wont regret it.

4)My rig right now has:
-Sleeved Cables
-Modded Case
-Lighting (UV Cold Cathodes to light up the sleeving)
-Fans
-Fan Controller
-RAM Cooling

the only thing now that in my opinion my rig misses is Watercooling and that's what im getting next..

Hi. Here's what I recommend.

1) Lamptron FC-3

2) As stated, most graphics cards come with the Crossfire / SLI bridges.

3) FTW PC has a large selection of power supply sleeving on order that is due to arrive in the next 2-3 weeks. More info on that here.

We also offer a less expensive option.

4) Don't forget all the little details. We have a large selection of products to suit your needs. Check out www.ftwpc.com.

We ship internationally, by PM only since our site isn't set up for int'l shipping yet.
