Yates + Controller

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My low speed yate loons don't seem to pull a lot of air on my rad (what a shocker ). I was thinking about puting a fan speed controller so that I can make my low speed fans run at the medium or high speed yate loons when necessary. Is this possible to do, or are the low/medium/high speed yate loons set at a specific speed and cannot be changed?

I could be wrong, but i am pretty sure that you are stuck with whatever speed you bought. There is a resistor before the motor, and this varies the speed. Over volting that would work, but a fan speed controller wouldn't do that, and you would more then likely break the fan. You could also replace the resistor, but that seems like a lot of work when those fans are so cheap. Hope that helps!

A fan speed controller gives fans more power or less power. Maybe the yate loons can somehow resist this?

Holtzman, thanks for trying to help +1

im pretty sure all u can do is make them slower not faster with a controller, try overvolting them
