Hey guys so I've recently been looking into a fan controller and am probably going to buy it on Wednesday. Just wanted some advice, and recommendations on good/bad products. I've found that a lot of people have had trouble the NZXT LX and LXE controllers... I would buy the LX because only because it tells me the fan speeds and has the alarm for if one shuts off... but 90% of the time I wouldn't care for it...

so I've been looking at the BitFenix Hydra Pro ( http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=6_108&item_id=049168 )

It seems like a great controller, very powerful (5 x 30W channels apparently... so basically 150W total if ever necessary, not really believable to me not that I'd use that anyways...) I'll never use more than 10W each for a fan and even thats pushing it cause as it is my most power hungry fan is my 230mm Coolermaster and that draws around 4W and I have 3 200mm @ 3.36W each.

Also quick question is would I be able to control my CPU fan on my Arctic Freezer 13 Pro or would the Mobo have problems cause it doesn't detect a fan or something... I'd like to be able to change it on the fly...

Lastly and recommendations have to come from http://www.canadacomputers.com because I don't want to do the whole shipping/waiting tongue.gif plus if it's garbage its a big hassle returning usually xD

Thanks in advance for any help, I know a lot of you guys are crazy about having a good quality fan controller and have a lot of knowledge in the field smile.gif
