Fan Controller Reccomendation

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i have haf x nvidia ed. case with
1 - Spectre Pro 140x25 red led
3 - Spectre Pro 200x25 red led
1 - Spectre Pro 230x25 red led
So i need a minimum of 5 channel fan controller, preferably something that has to be mounted in the drive bay and not external (like the NZXT Sentry LXE).

I've been looking at the NZXT Sentry LX but i heard that the fan controller would reset itself(which is bad for the date/time, don't really mind about it but if there's something better i would rather get that). (Or should i wait for a better 1, i don't really need it now). Any suggestions is much appreciated.
Thanks

The sentry mesh is ok for fan control but useless for anything else, couldn't put my mcp355 pumps on it

I would recommend the lamptron fc9, I know it only has 4 channels but with 50w per channel you could hook all your fans up to one channel if you wanted too

Also it is customizable to any led color you like which is cool

The Kaze Master is indeed one solid piece of hardware.

What about the Lamptron FC2? 6 channel, 30W per channel, and very affordable.

I'm in the market for a fan controller as well. Preferably a high-quality one. Price isn't really a concern. I'd like it to have a display where I can see the temps and RPMs, as well as being able to use with at least 9 fans. I'm open to buying more than one if necessary. Touch controls would be nice, but they're not required. I'd really rather not go with a basic analog controller, so I'd like to be flashy. I'd also like to be able to control the temperature, and not just the RPM, if possible.
