Fan controller for HAF X

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm looking for a pretty much basic fan controllere which supports 5 fans. I want the computer to be silent when I'm not gaming.
The cables need to be long enough so I don't have to buy extension cables.

I've been looking at ZALMAN MFC1 PLUS and NZXT Sentry Mesh. The NZXT is out of stock and I pretty much need to place a order on monday.

I appreciate any recommendations.

I would steer clear of the MFC-1. I've had that and it had issues controlling some fans. Bad experience with NZXT as well but not that model athough I think the sentry mes is fine.

This Sunbeam Rheosmart is the one I currently use which looks very in keeping with the HAF X. Has 30W per channel and can handle lots of fans.

I have the Sentry Mesh on my Haf 922...no problems for me. Was also considering the Sunbeam linked above but I just went with cheaper since I didn't really need one.

Looks pretty nice. Can't seem to find it in Sweden though.

I couldnt get it here in NZ either so I imported from US.

I got mine from FrozenCPU.

Can also get from Amazon.

Lamptron FC5V2 , Awesome cooler with display and different colors and monitoring volt or temperature sensors.
Supports several fans per channel

I'll import if I can't get a decent fan controller available in Sweden.

Looks like it supports 4 fans only?


I'll order the zalman I think. If it doesn't work I'll just return it.

Scythe Kaze master Pro is what I have on my HAF X. Only thing is it's blue backlit etc. So doesn't go with the red scheme. Unless you have a blue HAF X colour scheme.
