Quote:
Lamptron has just launched the new FC5V3 fan controller, which is not only a revision of the FC5V2 but it is a real step forward in the evolution of this kind of products. This fan controller is positioned to become the new datum point in the cooling domain. In fact, the Lamptron FC5V3 has 6 channels and can handle up to 30 W per channel. The new wide LCD display shows all the information (RPM, temperature and voltage) for every channel.

If you have low amp fans, a single channel can run many fans, 2 3 4 easily. So a 4-channel controller can run 6 fans without even breathing hard, if you have fans that only pull .05A, .08A,.13Amps, like the Noctua NF-F12s and the Sanyo-Denki 9S series.

I ordered these two fan controllers today after reading the article, upgrading from my Lamptron FC5V2, not sure which one will work better in my rig, but both looked so awesome, it will be fun trying them out.

Not certain what it was, but the idea of vacuum tubes with a remote control just pulled me in.

I have a $15 controller, 3 channels, 30w each, running 14 fans thumb.gif, varying from 800rpm to 2100rpm, 2 years strong and it works perfectly, would love one of this though, too expensive for just a fan controller.
post #7 of 40
You dont really need 30W channels. My GT-15 pull like 1W each. $90 is way too much. Personally i am not upgrading until there is something you can customize with temps and such.

Someone on a different forum said that all fan controllers should have at least 60W channels, mentioning that he has 30W fans and ~57W fans. Different strokes for different folks!

I just bought a v2 last week. D'oh!

Still should suit my needs just fine running 5 helix fans per channel.

Yea, I think some enthusiasts are still running the high Amp Delta class fans, so they may need high watt capacity per channel. Just from my limited experience, 30Watts per channel is more than enough for a silent work rig. smile.gif
