I got a sunbeam. It's awesome, handles a high speed panaflo easily, along with some cathodes, and 3 other fans. One of which is a 90 cfm 80mm fan running at 6000 RPM. Hold on a sec while i get you a newegg linky

Edit: They're discontinued Here's essentially what I have but from vantec,

For the 5.25" fan controllers:

Thermaltake XController $17


Otherwise the Sunbeam Rheobus is great.

Get a Sunbeam Rhoebus, it fits in one of your 5.25" drive bays. It can control 4 fans, and can handle 20 watts per channel which is enough to power basically any fan besides 200+ CFM deltas. And, it only costs $13!

I just started running a Vantec Nexus on my system - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813999504

So far, it has worked great with my 3 fans I have attached to it. The only drawback is that I find myself wishing it had the option to turn off any of the fans connected.

Awesome fan controller!
quoted for great pick.
im really happy with mine. it can handle 7W on the first 4 channels, and the last 2 should be able to handle just about anything, as long as your PSU can handle it.
besides that it looks awesome.
quite cheap too.

I'm looking for a fan controller to control 3 80mm Atrix Fanciblue fans, a Silverstone FM121, and my Rosewill CPU cooler.

My CPU cooler fan can be on all the time at full blast. My mom's HP drowns my computer out right now. The Thermaltake controller looks so good but a lot lot LOT of bad reviews on Newegg. A lot of analog knob fan controllers do actually.

That Zalman ZM-MFC1 is looking like the controller to get for me right now. I just need someone to explain what I need to do to run 5 fans on it.

:/
