Yep, that's kind of what I did, I cut a hole in both the back cover and the back lip of the case, you can kind of see it here where the sleeve is running to:


The fan wires are long enough to reach my molex plug on the back of the case, but I'm guessing I'll have to do some extensions to reach the fan controller. I might even try to take the fan controller apart and see if I can make it four 20watt rehostats, that way I can leave my front bays alone.

Yup thats what i wanted to do, to leave my front bays, what i might to is just mount it on the back, and leave it there lol, use some double sided tape and stick it vertically. To power that controller all it needs is a molex connected to it right?

EDIT: BTW right now i have about 4 Loons and 4 SlienX's connected in serial to just 1 mobo fan port....is that okay?

Ahh!...you've got a tough MB there, I've never burned one out but I have read several fan specs like panaflos say not to connect to a MB header. Do you have any glowing red traces.. I would switch that over to a molex.

Yeah, mounting on the back would be fine, just one molex in and it will either have molex or 3 pin outs...probaly 3 pin. I thought having control up front would be cool, but the truth is after a while of playing with settings I just left it alone anyway.

I think I'll only need three rehostats, one for each radiator and one for my exhaust/mosfet fans...all the rest of my fans are super quiet 1300 rpm style anyway.

LOL nope no glowing reds, but what i did is take them from a 3 pin and used all my molex adaptors on the fans, think that will help?
Yup i want to keep the front clean anyway. Back mount will be the best way to go for me.

Hmmm 3 reho's? you mean the sunbeam ones?dont they take 4 fans each though? im just using them for my so called silent X's! lol, the rest of my fans are nice Loons!!

Yeah, if it's a molex plugged directly to you're PSU molex that's converted to 3 pins, I would just avoid the power from the MB for anthing more than one fan at a time.

Yeah, I'm talking about the sunbeam, it essentially has 4 individual rehostats to control 4 channels and supposedly they are each good for 20 watts. Most fans are normally less than 4 watts each, so you can theoretically connect several fans on one channel if you use molex/y splitters. So my plan is to run one triple fan rad per channel, then I'll have two left over for my other case fans.

Before I had this thermaltake controller:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999137
There are no specs on the rehostat capacities, but I'll tell you that hooking up three loons on one channel was too much

Before I figured what was going on I had only one working channel left.

haha lol, hmmm so i think i have to cut a hole in the back of my case anyway, just to be safe.
Then slot the PSU molex through the back and connect it into the sunbeam.
I was going to connect a molex from a mobo fan port, but hmmm, it is aalot for that little fan port haha.
Im trying to fugure out a way not to cut the back of my case lol.hmmm

I just took a small notch out of the cover part that's bent inward, and the same thing for the case, so it's not really a hole in the side.

And you've got it easy with the aluminum, that steel on mine was some work, darn near had to break out the disk grinder..

Either way I bet you might have to make yourself an extension. Any old reasonable thickness wire and a soldering iron will do the trick. You just need to get power from one of your PSU molex connectors down to the fan controller.

My fans are almost the same (70cfm, 14dba) out in the open air they blow the same cfm as my thunderblade, yet even with my ear near the fan I can barely hear it...I guess I got lucky with my silenx's.

Ahhh thats how you did it, hmmm well, ive pluged in all my fans into that 1 fan port on the mobo, and all seems to be well, the ASUS deluxe is meant to be made with good quality parts so, im hoping it will hold up lol. I have an infra red thermometer, so i measured the area around the fan port and the plug itself, and it doesent seem to be heating up at all.
The area and the fan prt are keeping at about 33C and stable.
