For lower speeds the controller sends out a voltage pulse with a longer time interval between each pulse, something like that, this is not ideal. I don't have drive bays so simply putting in a drive bay controller is out of the question and I would like to be able to controll all fans with one "knob" or a system like what is built into the trooper. Any ideas? I can get a drive bay controller, but what drive bay controller can run 8 fans controlled on a single "knob"/ push buttons

This one for 8 fans

This Lian Li PT-FN05B controls only 4 fans but it's with 1 knob

You'd loose the two 3.5\5.25 combo cages, but depending on the height of the rad with the fittings I think you'd probably be able to keep the top 5.25 slot open for a optical drive.

 

Ya I know that the rad should fit in the bays but it's a matter of how tall the bays are compared to the rad. My current rad is 460mm long. so it's only ~60mm longer than a most 360 rads and those seem to fit just fine. I'm not affraid of some carving but I want to avoid heavy modding. My current build has just been dragging along for the last year and half or so and I have a lot more I want to do but Have just lost the steam and am trying to decide if dumping/selling the project and buying a different case may save me money and frustration.

I'm having a small problem with the fan Led switch on the top of the case. I have some Bitfenix Led lights connected to it so that i can switch them on and off. It's been working fine since i first put them in (about 4 weeks ago) but not now. The problem is that when i press the button to turn them off, all it does is dim them slightly which is very strange.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

Also no fans are connected to the controller. Just 2 sets of Led strips.

Ehhhh, 460MM would be pushing it. You could get it to fit I think, but you'd lose all three 5.25 bays up top. I haven't really done any case modding before so I can't say for sure, but it's there is any measurements or pictures you want just let me know. smile.gif


EDIT: @Forgeign03: What res is that? The build looks killer!

I'm new, but here's my current build. I haven't placed the CPU in because I haven't purchased the cooling system I want. I also still need GPU and RAM.

Edit: Led lights connected to this no longer even light up. I think the controller may be defective.
