Lamptron FC6 fan controller with AP-15s.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, ive just purchased four AP-15s and the Lamptron FC6 fan controller to use with them. They are (hopefully if they fit) going to be doing a push/pull config with my rx240 rad.

I just thought of something though, the fans are capable of 1850rpm and then on the FC6 fan controller specs here , as they are 20W per channel, it states that its capable of powering fan speed range of 500 to 7,500 rpm?

Does this mean i wont be able to get the full rpm from the AP-15s? Should i have gone for a 30W per channel one?

Thanks guys

I think 20W per channel just means it will fully support a 20W fan.

By that logic if you plug a 30W fan into it, supposedly it would only do 2/3 the maximum speed at the max setting.

I think that's how it works. Hope that helps.

20w per channel means you can have a max of 20w being drawn from each channel by a fan or fans

you can actually daisy chain all 4 of your fans together to one channel and it should be fine if my math is correct

Ive heard good things about lamptron but the FC5v2 and FC6 ive read issues regarding the fans buzzing and the rpm being wierd? I searched this forum and found the threads regarding this.

I will look at the touch. I have looked at the FC8 but that pretty expensive.

FC6 would've worked just fine, 20w is plenty.

I use the FC5 v2 also mounted 4 GT's AP-15 on it. No buzzing, no problems even i cannot hear the sound of the fan. My Silverstone AP-181 as intake are louder compare to AP-15..
