Fan Controller that can fit behind a case door.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've been wanting a fan controller for a while now, but I've been scared to get one and have the knobs get in the way of closing the door on my case (NZXT TRINITY)

Anybody know of a good fan controller (preferably with blue LEDS somewhere...on it) that would allow me to still close the door when it is installed? That would be great

That first one looks pretty nice. I'm not lookin' to spend too much money...maybe like 30 bucks or around there. The second one is a little too big for me. I don't wanna have a fan controller take up 2 bays. I'm sure it works great, but not my type.

I actually really like the first one...it will go on the list as a possible choice. The LCD display would be awesome to have instead of knobs.

Thanks for the reply 8)

I have the aerocool gatewatch 2 but did not install it yet, due to having to wait for some more parts for the build

The only thing that I don't like about the blue LCD one is that it would be so low...I would have to practically get out of my chair and sit on the floor to be able to read/adjust what it said.

Well, the Aerocool Gatewatch 2 comes with a magnifier lense that is attached to the front and thus magnifies the entire screen, making the readings more clear and bigger

I have always wanted one that had "push in" style knobs. Like some of the older car stereos. You know, push in and release to get them to pop out, adjust, and push back in. I have even looked for the knobs seperately, but no luck.

Sounds like the knob to adjust watches... Pull out to unlock it, turn to set, then push back in. That would be cool...

How much room is there behind the case door once its closed? Most fan controllers shouldn't be a problem...
