FC Touch & SP120 High Performance- fans per channel?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Since no one could respond to my last question I will ask another:

Since this post I since have ordered the FC touch which states it has 30w per channel. Would anyone have any information if using 4 SP120High Performance edition fans per chanel be ok? Does anyone have this controller that can chime in?

1+


+4

Thanks for any input.











Original Post:

I want to control roughly ~20 Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance series fans (~16 on rads and 3-4 on the case) I newly bought for my 900d build with a single controller if possible. I currently have two Fan controllers that I've been using with no issues, but like I stated I want a single controller if possible.


2 controllers I already have:

NZXT Sentry LX - Controls 4 case fans and 1 rad fan
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992004


and

Lamptron FC2 - Controls 6 rad fans
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811997019




2 controllers I'm looking at:

FC Touch
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12285/bus-243/Lamptron_FC_Touch_-_30W_-_6_Channel_Aluminum_Rheobus_w_Touch_Screen_-_Black_FCT_HOT_ITEM.html


or

The newer (dont think its out yet) Lamptron CW611
http://www.lamptron.com/2013/02/05/introducing-the-lamptron-cw611/


Will either of these work how I want it to or do/should I run a pair of controllers? If there's another controller I should look at please let me know.

Thanks in advanced for the help.

Yes, you could easily put 4 of those per channel on a 30W/channel fan controller.

Thanks Yanks. Just wanted to have a little reassurance. +Rep

What would you think the max # fans per channel would be?

If I am not mistaken, those fans are about 3 W each, so I would say you could probably get a good 7 or 8 comfortably, but I cannot say that for certain.
