Smart Fans

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I bought some thermaltake smart fans, the ones that come with the panel that you can put in the back of your case, but I want to use a Zalman fan controller to control them, does anyone know how I can do this?

Thanks in advance.

If you're planning on using a Zalman controller, then there was no need for you to have bought the Thermaltake smart fans. You plug normal fans into the controller for the ability to control the speed. There's no need to control a fan that already has a built in controller.

Well the fan has nice speed/DBA, so its a good fan overall. To use the zalman, i believe all you'd have to do is NOT use the TT one, and plug the smartfan into the zalman controller
