Fan Controller Questions - Page 4

post #31 of 74
Thread Starter 
Thanks to all who helped convince me that the CW611 is the controller I need now WHERE to buy one? FCPU is my normal shop for water cooling parts and I think I have a 10% off coupon for my next order with them.
I will be getting the CW611, Water temperature sensor, fan splitters and any other bits to get the installation completed.

Lol I wasn't sure if every fan needed it's own channel or something. At 36 watts/channel I was doubting it. I'll have to watch some videos to get a better understanding. And I gotta figure out how people extend their fan cables all the way to the controller. Are they just buying 3pin extension cables or are they cutting new wires to go the distance?

The CW611 comes with 6 fan cable extensions.
Still, I have my 39 fans spread across 3 channels. Channel 1# has 19 fans on it. I use this to connect them all. But read the review first, I wrote it.

I do not think they stack discounts.

Any other vendors sell the CW611 less than $90 USD

If you buy thart one, beware.

If you want your fan rpm displayed, you will have to scatch off the trace at the back of the pcb to allow only one fan rpm signal on.

If you want all the 8 fans connected to run at the same speed, you will need to snip off that stoopit cap between the 4th and 5th fan header, and solder a path to reconnect the two traces.

And the pins on each header will become loose and lose their contact. So you'll need to put epoxy on the back side to reinforce. Epoxy on the front side won't hurt either, as long as you don't get any glue on the headers.

And if you don't want/know how to pin your own cables, you'll need to get the optional cable for it.

Good to know. I'm going to just get three of these so I don't have to get out the soddering gun and to save time I'll just get the adapter cables. I can deal with spending an extra $15 to avoid the hassles. I will epoxy the backs though as you have suggested.

Still seems like a lot of trouble to use those ModMyToys PCBs. Epoxy? really?
