Antec 900 fan controller question. - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Lots of choices at all of the major distributors. That said, as you're probably not wanting to read the speed of *every* fan, just run it off the one on the side. I bought an Antec at Microcenter.

On my 900, I put a small connector on the big fan on top, and ran that as sys-fan on the MB. It was set to kick up to full if CPU temp got above 50C (as did the Zalman on the CPU) - idle was about 60 or 70%, or it wouldn't spin up reliably at boot.

I finally ended up removing the fan controller. I'll use it on the WC rig for my i7, but came to the conclusion that it was of no use to me on my air-cooled rig.
