Now that is nice, but your right, its too much.

Never mind.

A Lamptron FC-2 looks like it would work, but it doesn't show RPM. What features do you want in a fan controller, and what is your budget?

Also, click this link and fill in your computer specs. I also recommend filling in what country your are in so that we can link to relevant stores. Link for that.

With Akasa PWM splitters power to fans is taken straight from PSU, only speed control comes from PWM controller. That's why you could also use a motherboard fan header for controlling.

Here's the controller I use and recommend http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12...?tl=g47c17s240 . Runs 11 fans flawlessly and the PMW feature is cool

got the lamptron in today and installed. Im not really happy with it though. I dont know if its the controller or the fans. Fans dont even turn on untill the knob hits at least half way, then the fans are up around 2000rpm. Its still too loud. Was hoping i could set them at around 1000-1200 rpm but it just doesnt work.

What i want in fan control. I want to see the rpm of the fans so it needs some kind of LCD screen, also temp display. Now im thinking about getting some different fans, non PWM. Then I wont need a 30w a ch. fan controller. There really is no limit to budget, but i dont want to spend hundreds of dollars on a fan and temp ontroller.

There is no way to just plug the fan into the mobo and control rpms via software?

Ive looked, I could use software from evga to control the fans for the gpus, but that doesnt work, they dont have fans. Still looking into software to control the speeds.
