The only problem I see is that if you are running high wattage fans like Delta's, the lower the fan speed, the more heat you'll be dumping into the case from that controller. On fans that are only 1-5 watts it won't make a difference. But if you have 4 - 20w Delta's on there it would be like having a mid range GPU in a 5.25" bay.
Do I smell a new product possibility for your business, CD? How about custom heavy duty fan controllers capable of handling the wattage of those monstrous 120mm Deltas & Tornados? Not only that, but instead of making them just as bay devices, integrate them into the entire front panel, to whatever panel you're making..... maybe even integrate them into side panel window kits.

There are PVM controllers which cycle between 0 and 12v many times a second depending on the required voltage/speed. The problem that these have however, is that LED fans and some high performance fans will not work on them. I can't get my $1.29 Rosewill 80mm's to work on my $40 Kamameter. However, they work wonderfully on my Vantec Nexus $12 controller. From my travels with a dozen or so fan controllers, I've decided that controllers without an LCD are best. Rheostats are great because they work with everything and aren't easy to kill. They do dump heat however, espeically at lower fan speeds which is very counterproductive.

In CyberDruid's application of this fan controller, there might not actually be excess heat from the rheostats. There is theory and then real world 'benchmarks'. I would be interested to see the actually amount that they release, because I haven't seen any tests on it yet.

Witchfire, the problem comes from high wattage fans. The rheostat cuts some voltage out and transfers it via those heatsinks you can see in the picture. If the fan is going at 12v, 100%, then there will be no heat coming from the heatsinks. If the fans are at 5v, ~50%, about half of the power that the fan normally draws is turned into heat and dumped into the case. Lower fan speed, more heat.

I said about half, because the Amp draw of a fan is not linear with the voltage. Take a fan that is normally 12v, 1A. At 5v, it won't draw 1A, but more likely around 1.5A. At 100% the fan would draw 12w, and at 42% (5v) the fan would draw about 7.5w, or about 63% of the full speed usage.

The SilenX are really low amp...nothing to worry about--they spin so slow that the controller has to be just about where the LED turns blue to even start turning...

Took a little bit to get the rig together as I wanted to use this old Ultra I bought from someone..... And it is a real PITA...the cbales are all too long for the application so it's the usal snarl of spaghetti--shiny, UV reactive spaghetti...

The fan controller really makes the front panel glow...

RE RAID on this board--it only allows two disks per array--but it has two controllers so I have RAID array for the OS and a RAID array for something...I dunno what.

Wierd...

I got several code 92 beeps and failures to POST at first--but it is fine now-- I cleared CMOS and when it would start that crap I just hit reset.

I think it's the Ultra

I got some pics to upload but right now I am bringing the beast online. The Rpators are making a helluva improvement on the load times as you might imagine...

Overall it looks good.

I like the fan filters--if someone else were to put this on their Antec 900 they could run without filters--put aerocool streamliners in it with nosecones--there are a number of choices;

Ditto the Optical drive--most people are going to use a tray drive--it's about 1/4 the price of a slot load. So obviously I should develop that as well--the problem is that the tray comes so close to the edge of the panel that I am concerned about cracking during routing it.

And ditto the fan controller--I like the SunBeam compared to most I have seen because it has massive heatsinks and nice hardware in it...it actually looks like a piece of equipment insteaf of some sort of tinsel on the tree...

I'll get the pics up in a minute.

BTW I found a great place to mount the Floppy drive--I screwed it to the side of the Optical bay behind the door...fits perfect.

How about right now...I need to make something...

BTW RAID rocks--that WD cav was killing me yesterday at 59 mbs...

I have run these Raptors on a lot of boards but this one is SMOKING.

130 MB/s average read with 241 Burst. That's a ton better than ICE or Velocitor or WaterClocker or Claw--that's just amazing. I finally feel like I am getting the bandwidth I deserve

Edit--and the X1950pro is much easier on my eyes than the 7800GT.

The 7800GT did crack off a 5042 in 3DMark05 though

But TBH is had a crappy look on the desktop--digital vibrance makes me want to pluck out my eyes.

Plus the ATI card is (you guessed it)red...
