I bought about twenty older ones when SVC.com had them on clearance for like $5. I just hacked the fan controller off, Soldered the controller wires together and boom ran as a 4 pin fan!
I have the three pin ones (led). I had all of them daisy chained w/ hubs and then to a fan controller. For the XB, im using two hubs for two sets of four fans on the rad. the internal fans (top two, front two, and rear) are hooked up to a couple of channels.
My fan controllers 12v crapped out. Its not feeding in the power right and it causes the fans to buzz. Luckily, the 5v works fine and the R4s work great @ 5v. Its actually the lowest level of the fan controller so it worked out great. I have no control but its right at the quiet noise level i want. I usually game at night w/ the headphones so the only audible noise is the pump (mcp 35x). These are the r4s I have:
I'll be selling some extras I have soon.Edited by wermad - 5/10/13 at 11:13pm
