Fan controller. (was looking @ this)

I have the antec 900 case and I heard this looks really good with it in black.

I'm looking to spend about $20 and it doesn't have to be this one if there is a better one out there.

I'd prefer 3.5" but 5.25" works too

I've never understood the use of fan controlling hardware. I use speed fan. Looks good though.

Vantec makes good stuff so you should be happy with it.

People use fan controllers when they don't have enough headers on their motherboard or don't want to run a pile of fans off of it because of the extra power the motherboard has to supply.

Nice controller.. 18 watts per channel should be plenty.

I run this sunbeam controller and love it. I run 5-141 CFM delta fans on 2 rads. It can handle 20 watts per channel and the fans are just over 9 watts each.

I like hardware controllers over software cause I can make a fan speed change fast and simple.

some mother boards do not support software fan speed changing ... So for those people who can't change their speeds via a program, they use hardware fan controllers

My board supports changing the speeds or whatever, but that's not why I want it.

My reason for wanting one is that I have 2 loud fans on my true that i use to keep the temps low in the daytime and at night I sleep with my computer on and I want to be able to turn them down to silent quickly while I leave downloads on all night because they don't use up that much cpu %.

Most mobos limit the number of fans than can be speed controlled. If you want to automatically control more than a couple of fans, you need something else.

X2 on the Rhoebus mention. I own one myself and love it, very sleek look and great build quality.
