5.25 fan controller......but slim.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I love my Sugo-05 mini-itx case. But it only accepts a slim 5.25 drive.

Anyone know of a fan controller that would fit in a slim 5.25 bay?

slim = (like a laptop sized drive)

No, it's either 5.25 or 3.5 standard bay. For small cases, you do have other options like PCI bracket fan controller.

Mod that case and make it your own.

Get some rheostats with nice, machined knobs. Disassemble your system, measure, and drill some holes in the front left of the case (top-to-bottom) for the rheostats (note: I'm going off the NewEgg case picture, but it looks possible).

If you wanted, you probably could just buy a fan controller and use the hardware from it. With some measuring and a bit of work, you could make it really nice.

There is one possibility:-Scythe Kama Panel

It is a multi functional controller device which fits inside a regular 5.25'' single bay drive. But its 4-channel fan controller can slide out and replaced by a slim size DVD drive.
This means, the 4-fan controller can be fit into a slim size DVD bay.

Take a look and see if it fits your need.

I'm in the same boat. Built a system with the SG-06 and now wanting a fan controller. What did you end up doing?
