Does the lowest setting on this FC actually turn the fans off?

 

In one word NO and by what I recall which is something you don't like as you want the option to turn fans off. biggrin.gif

 

It's at 7 volts I believe on the lowest setting - I have one of these installed in one of my rigs.

Yep. It is mandatory that they shut off. The only fans I have running while I'm just browsing is my CPU cooler's fans running around 600 rpm. My rig is silent. I turn the intake and exhaust up a bit when I am gaming/benching. Lamptron FC5 version 2. I love it.

Edit: And running them like this cuts down on dust. FTW

Thank you Sir! I'm pretty handy when it comes to modding so I think I'll attempt to mock one up. I also agree with your previous post in regards with this case having some much potential in modding move bays around. I have no need for the hot swap feature of this case and I'm thinking about removing those bays and adding a reservoir.

I made a cardboard template from the extended bracket, and just transfered my markings on to some scrap metal. Easy peasy.

You know (I think I mentioned once before) if you wanted to could make a few bucks selling these to people.

How much do you think it would be worth? If I could make a die, and just stamp them out, yeah it would be easy. But there is quite a bit of work in making one of these little buggers by hand.

I thought it was "easy peasy".  biggrin.gif

 

Of course after what you said, it's not worth it.

It's easy peasy to make ONE! LOL biggrin.gif The worst part (most difficult) is cutting out the void in the middle with a reciprocating saw without warping the whole darn thing into a wad of junk! LOL

EDIT: You really want to have a fine tooth bi metal blade, or a good hand with a Dremel and a cut off wheel.

I understand.

 

If someone were like you said earlier mass produce these with a die - that maybe would be different.  Maybe Cooler Master can get a cue from this discussion............................................................................................................again maybe.tongue.gif

Hey, I CAN send them a prototype. THAT would be worth doing! thumb.gif

EDIT: I am kidding of course, they already have the dimensions they need to make one. All they have to do is make a stamping die.
