fan controller help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a fan controller to power a 7160 RPM Delta Mega-fast with 5 other fans.

The problem is the Delta mega-fast requires 4A, 48W, and up to 13.2V to run. Does this mean i have to find a fan controller that supports more than 48W/12V per channel?! I can't even find one on newegg or frozencpu. Newegg has a 1st PC CORP 45w/channel but i'd rather not risk it.

The Lamptron FC-2 should do fine. It's the same controller at Newegg, only sold under 1st PC Corp brand. Another options (what I would do) is run it off your PSU with either a 50w rheostat in circuit or a Lamptron Fan-Atic for better control, since I can't imagine this fan running 100% all the time. The 5 other fans would be controlled by the FC-2 or equivalent fan controller.

and it's loud

There is two fan controller I can think of, either the Sidewinder 50W Rheostat or the Lamptron Atic.

Available in frozencpu.

Hahaha that sounds awesome, definitely only running it when im pushing my cpu. The lamptron atic only supports 12v and it says the delta needs 13.2, i guess that won't be much of an issue?

I'll probably get the atic to run 5 of the fans temporarily and run the other 1 from a controller on the mobo. I can't see myself getting a rheostat, i'd have to mount it somewhere and i'm not planning on modding my 800d

edit: hell, i could probably control 2 gentle typhoons from 1 switch on the lamptron atic controller.
