Hey all,

Just looking for some opinions in a field I've never gone into. I just finished putting together an i7-3770k build with an H100, coupled with 4 SP120 fans (H100 was used, stock fans gone--SP120s are in push/pull). I got the High Performance thinking that my motherboard or the H100 could regulate the speed of the fans--I was wrong. Mobo is PWM only and H100 doesn't change speeds on the SP120s. So while they're not obnoxiously loud, I'd like to be able to tweak them.

I'd like a fan controller (Lamptron's offerings look good thus far) that can either control all 4 SP120s on one channel, or 2 push on one channel, 2 pull on another. Then I have 3 stock case fans currently managed by the Ard Midi R2's fan controller, but would move those to this new controller as well. After that I just have one YL medium fan intake on the bottom, and maybe one more up top at some point.

FC2 looks like a good option, although I do like the looks of the ones with digital screens such as the FC3 or FC5v2 particularly. What worries me is it seems none of these controllers come with 3-pin splitters, which run on Amazon for $4-5 at least for a 2-way splitter, which means I'd need a few of those along with the cost of a fan controller. So if any of these controllers are known to come with the splitters, even better!

Thanks!
