4-fan controller mod?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
is there any way that I can get my Lamptron FC5V2 (only controls up to 4 fans) to be able to control all 6 fans on my radiator?

/e FWIW, i'm using 6 AP-15's

Use a fan splitter cable like this?

Yep, either use a fan splitter like captvizcenzo said, or a Fan Hub PCB Just make sure that your 6 fans won't exceed the rated wattage of 30w per channel (for start up or running wattage), which in your case, 6 AP-15's are fine (~24w start up and ~8.5w running). I have wiring diagrams drawn up in MS Paint for my own personal build using the same fan controller and fans as you, so let me know if you want them to help you figure out the wiring. Hope this helps. thumb.gif

Where did you get those numbers? The Scythe web site specs the AP 15 at .083 Amp each. X 6 = .498 Amp. X 12 volts = 5.976 Watts

I have never seen start up power specced. Is there a formula? That would be awesome.

Is there a website you found that lists these obscure details? That would be most handy.

Nidec-Servco Website, these are the full specs for the GT's.


Edit: Looks like mm67 was a bit faster than me, that's what I get for not having my coffee yet at 5am. tongue.gif

The 30w model? Seems perfectly feasible, but man that would make me nervous on start up. tongue.gif

It sits under one of my rads so the heatsinks get plenty of air. thumb.gif

Well that would most definitely help while running. thumb.gif I would still be frightened of the surge during start up, but that is just because of some of the experiences in my life with electricity. I play it very safe because my father actually lost his arms while doing electrical work. Granted, it was high voltage, but electricity is electricity as far as I'm concerned. tongue.gif
