Best Fan Controller for NZXT Switch 810 (Fully Loaded)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I'm trying to find a good fan controller for my new NZXT Switch 810 case, but can't find anything to settle on.

This Case is FILLED with all BitFenix Spectre Pro Blue LED fans (Even mix of 120's and 140's)

I've got 5 120's in the top of the case, 4 are being used on my H100, and 1 as another exhaust
I've got 5 140's in case, 2 are in the front for intake, another 2 140's on the HDD cages pointing up, and the last 140 as exhaust.

I want something to control all of my fans, but doesn't have to be have precise control over every individual fan. (though preferred) If I have to control the fans in sections, I'm ok with that. (I.E, Top exhaust fans as a group, front exhaust as a group, HDD as a group, and rear exhaust.)

In the future, I plan on adding another 120mm for a 360 rad in the top, and then moving one of the 140's on the HDD cage to the bottom and adding another for a 280 rad in the bottom, and would like group control for those if I do so. In total, I plan on having a total of 12 fans in the case once it's done.

It would be nice to have individual control for every fan, but I'll settle for splitter and group control if I have to.

BONUS: If you can find a way to include fan controllers for my two Kingston HyperX Memory fans, ontop of the 12 case fans, you will win so much. I do not mind having 2 controllers instead of just one. Taking up two 5.25 slots is no issue to me.

I hate being so picky, but I've spent a lot of money and time on my build, and I just want it done right... biggrin.gif


Thank you everyone for your advice and recommendations, I'm truly grateful.

As always, thanks again, and let me know what you think thumb.gif

Thank you so much! smile.gif any idea on the first one? It looks like it would be touch, but I don't see any mention if it being one.

BitFenix Hydra Pro, 5 channels @ 30W each, and since you have the Spectre Pro LED fans, you can control the LEDs as well. The SofTouch finish is a 99.9 percent perfect match for the trim on the Switch 810 as well. I really couldn't be happier with mine!

I have touch myself, and it works really well, but honestly I would get FC5V2 (not fan of resistive touch screens) if my case could handle knobs.
