Best fan controller?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi

I'm after a good fan controller that can control 6 or more fans.
Any recommendations?

Thanks

personally I use 6x 30W rheostat fan controllers from sunbeam, they're great.

but never knew lamptron made an 8 channel version (but 6 is great for my Push/Pull 360 rad setups.)

Yup Lamptron rocks, you can even get them at micro-center if you have one near by.

Define "best". Are you wanting switches or pots? What kinda of wattage/channel do you need? As wattage needs climb the number of choices plummets.

I'm loving my Scythe Ultra Q12. Controls 12 fans and really seems to do a good job of it. It's an awesome no-nonsense controller in my opinion.

NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller w/ Five 30 watts Channels $25
Has only 5, but your can use a fan splitter and plug it that way.
Lowest speed is 40%, which is enough to keep fans quiet.

Get the sunbeam, its rheostat not PWM, so you are getting constant voltages, not pulses
