I just got 30$ (5$ of which I spent, haha) for selling a cheap computer, (Lol, I know), so, I decided to spend it on something new for my computer.

My fan controller on my Phantom went out in a hilarious sleeving accident (explained at the bottom)

But I'd also like a new fan for my heatsink.

I'd prefer the fan controller, but what would most be worth 25$ out of these items?

For the fan controllers, the Sentry 2 would be cool, but I have a Delta Fan as my rear exhaust, so 10 watts may not be enough.
And my heatsink uses 120mm fans.



*Sleeving Accident*

I was just sleeving the molex plug that supplies power to the fan controller. So I get all the pins out, sleeve it, and then because the wires are NOT color coded, they're all black, my first reaction was, *Crap, how do I know which order these go into?* So I just decided to man up and take the risk in putting the wires in the exact order they came down. Well, they were wrong. The wire went up in smoke, and the PCB on the fan controller melted a little. LOL. That ended my sleeving extravaganza lol
