What fan controller do you use? - Page 4

post #31 of 35
The trouble with speedfan and mobo controlled fan is you have to use PWM fans and those can get expensive, especially in a build like mine with 34 fans and counting. You can get fan controllers that are automated, mine in my sig is an example.

Controlling your rad fans based on your core temps.is not the best, most efficient way, and not very effective on a GPU/CPU loop. You should use your delta T but that can be a challenge. Second best is to control your rad fans based on your water temps.

Im working on a little sensor that can make all that delta T stuff a lot better. But I dont know if I can manufacture/market it effectively. Still, it will be fun to try.

My Gigabyte Z77 boards for example have 2 PWM controlled headers, 1 voltage header and 1 header that can do both. Then again my old X58 Sabertooth has only 1 PWM header and 4 voltage controlled headers so you sure are not limited to only PWM fans

My Gigabyte UD5 board has 2 PWM and three voltage controled, but you can also change the PWM headers to voltage controlled in the BIOS.
