Can you automatically control fanspeeds?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Right, so I'm getting an Antec 1200 soon (in transit, actually) and I'm planning on replacing the fans with something... less "keep me up at night"

Can the sys_fan connector be used to control case fans automatically? And if so, is there a way to link multiple fans together to all be controlled (wouldn't matter if they all went the same speed or anything.)

I'm not looking forward to getting a fan speed controller, and I might just end up with some silent fans running full speed or something.

These yate loons I ordered from petras own.

They actually weren't bad in price.

Edit:

I bought these http://www.petrastechshop.com/12yalod1cafa.html

Not the best CFM-ers, but they push a nice amount of air and are whisper quiet.

edit2: If you're worried about "keep you up all night" then LEDs will be a pest too. I think the 1200 has LEDs in the fans, and if you want to break the LEDs, more power to you. but you may end up replacing the fans for that reason alone.

Well I was going to cut the wires to the LEDs, or at least pull them out so I could reconnect them later, but the stock Antec fans can be pretty loud on high settings and I don't even know how much air they're pushing.

You could try a program called Speedfan and turn down your fans through your motherboard at night.


Atleased... thats what I do.
