Fan control questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Looking at using fan control in my system but not sure if it's needed. 1). Want to know if anything will fit behind a fan control like a hd. 2) in an 80% mesh case will fan control be needed. 3). What type of fan control would you recommend?

You could fit a 5.25 fan controller and then a hdd in a 3.5 to 5.25 converter.

How many fans. And do you just want knobs or do you need a screen also.?


http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Phobya-4-Channel-Fan-Controller-Black_21100.html that will work as its slim and the cables go up over so they wont hit the hhd drive

As long as the controller and/or wires when plugged in don't exceed the first screw you will be 100% fine.
