What fans do you suggest?

Also, does anyone know how many fans I can connect to this controller? I see 4 3-pin connectors but will everything work fine with a Y-Splitter to control up to 8?

I like the Corsair SP120/AF120 fans. They don't rattle and make noise like cheaper fans do. When I had the trooper I used Y-Splitters on my fan controller, it will be perfectly fine.

anything thats quiet and moves a decent amount of air is fine with me, im gonna get a few of the bitfenix spectre pros to try out, ive heard theyre pretty good and they dont look too bad either.

my current fans sound like i fell inside a high powered rocket engine every time i turn on my computer lol.


also, get a http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=34_82&products_id=29694

i have 2 in my case atm and they are an amazing product, add more if needed tongue.gif nice price on them also, comes pre sleeved aswell, but you might have to heat up the heatshrink on them a bit, theyre pretty loose and can slip down if youre pulling them around to get cables in position.

made small change
old setup (with older gpu)

and current (I removed the Phobya G-changer 120 rad), maybe later I'll add 2 xtra fans (push/pull)


Now I'm just waiting for my 2 gifts so I can continue with my fav trooper

i would say not to connect more than 6 fans in total to the fan controller... i burned something on the PCB running eight SP120 HP's on y spliters. and that fan controller is not that very good. it uses pulse voltage to control the speed of the fan. it comes on and off at a certain frequency that is why you see the led's blink when you slow down the fans. for the LED's not to blink you need fans like the stock ones that have 2 connectors on them

Anyone have any luck with replacing the front fans under warranty? It costs 12 bucks to ship it back to them. It would make more sense to just buy two new fans.

yeah i would just ugrade to some nice bitfenix led pro and put ina nice bitfenix recon controller while you are at it what i did., recon is nice
