need fan controller

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hey guys, i need a fan controller, something that can handle 9 fans, and if possible multiple fans per control <so 1 knob or w/e controls 2-4 fans>

and id like it to be manually controlled, so i can just crank the voltage all the way up and run them that way, since i wont be using it to monitor temps, it wont be able to adjust fan speed properly.

single or double bay 5.25 drive works, preferably, black

thanks

What fans exactly are do you want to control? Most fans run on 3-5w so you want to make sure each channel can handle your fans.

This looks good if you want some blue light.
You could get a couple of these.
This has 6 fan channels in i 5.25 bay.

Frozen CPU is a great place for PC parts.

Black PWM 6x Fan Controller can do 20w per channel. That is good for 2-4 fans on each knob.

The Zalman ZM-MFC1 can only do 7W per channel. Depending on the fans that you are using, you can only hook up one or two fans per.

Or...
You could get a Sunbeam Theta which manages 8 fans and 8 thermal sensors.
The only minor drawback is the external USB connection. Why they didn't also config it for an internal connection is beyond me.
It utilizes a Windows based managment GUI.
