the controller is powered via sata, via the motherboard(at least, i think that's what that sata is for) But more specifically, yes you can run any 3 pin fan you want in place of the other ones, i would guess you can daisy chain a few extra on there, but iv'e never tried to see just how many it can handle. I run my case fans via the built in controller, and my rad fans via aftermarket controller.

sata? no, just a 4 pin molex and a maximum of 7 fans (officially) can be hooked up to them (1 A max per grey connector, 2x 0.5A max for the browns)
And it uses pulse power, so don't use LED fans (unless it's this or this) on it unless you set the controller on full speed but that kinda defeats the purpose of a fan controller

So the fan controller included only works for CM fans? If I want to use Spectre pro fans for example (as these also have 2pins LED connectors), they won't work on it?

no, it works with all fans, but because the fan controller uses pulse rather than constant power most LED fans blink unless set at highest speed. I'm 100% sure the Spectre fans work, as for the LED connector idk about that.. What I mean is I never used the LED connectors of the fan controller with any other fans

That sata must be for the hot ports or something then.

The controller will work for any 3 pin fan, the 2pin should also work with any 2pin led fan.

not true.
i have seen 1 after market non cooler master fan with the correct leds idr which though some 2 pin fans you will ruin either fan or led controller or both.... the reason is some just use it as a switch ( on or off but it is just a piece of metal bridging 2 contacts. the led controller actually provides 5v

Yes, it's for the hot swap bay (X-Dock)

Agreed. Be careful for that because the power from the fan can fry the controller.

Much to Coolermaster's support credit as well as the reseller's, I received a new replacement case in about a week thumb.gif. Works perfectly this time: no broken standoffs and no loosen ones either.
I was so much in a hurry I bough a brand new one biggrin.gif while the first was on RMA: works perfectly as well.
Now I got 2 x Storm Strykers without any issue wink.gif. Seems like I really was very unlucky with the first one.

Anyway ... Very good support from Coolermaster thumb.gif

hmm, interesting. If i hadn't cut off my LED leads I would do some experimenting with this.

I do know that corsair, scythe, and a few other random CompUSA fan's work fine in the 3pin.
