Yes, I am running different fans off of the other channels. The whole idea is so I can control my rad temps with one channel, and specific case fans on the other channels.
What I would be more concerned about is thefact he is trying to run 8 fans off a single channel rated for 20w
First, I am running 6
fans off of one channel. Second, I honestly don't know where the 20 watts came from. 2.5A x 12V=30 watts... 3/6 fans are rated at .18 amps, and the other 3 are rated at .25. THUS, 30 watts will be more than enough? Comprendo?
If everyone else didn't read that ^^^, read it! I don't feel like answering any more fan controller questions.
Back to the orginal topic, I will making a call to frozencpu today, actually in just about 10 minutes! So, I will report back stating what they say to me! Thanks to anyone who helped regarding the power port, +REP.
