Help me choose a fan controller

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As the title says, I want to buy a fan controller and I would appreciate some help.

I will use at most 10 fans without leds (6 fans for a triple radiator and some more for the case and/or for an additional radiator).
I haven't decided which fans I will use yet, but looking at some specs I estimate that each fan will need around 2-3 watts.

This said, I am looking for a fan controller that is not too flashy, possibly with a screen (but no touchscreen) . I also prefer knobs rather than sliders.

So far, I like these two:
Lamptron FC5V2 (lowest price € 39,80 )
Lamptron FC6 (lowest price € 29,74 )
It looks like the main difference is that the first one supports 30W per channel while the second only 20W.

Will these be able to handle the fans? Any suggestion about other fan controllers would be appreciated.
