Would it better to plug my MCP655-Drive into that or into the CPU header on my motherboard?
EDIT: actually, nevermind it looks like they're all 3-pin on the Lamptron so it must just allow you to monitor RPMs rather than change them.
The CW611 lets you control D5's just fine,I have one and have tested it with 2 D5's,did exceptionally well at reducing voltage down to 7v...barely enough to keep the D5 running...with no hiccups.
It can handle flowmeters too but its not good in this regard.
However,It has no PWM control. A mobo header will do just fine for that.
Set the BIOS to shut down or alert on CPU fan fail and you will get warned if the pump stops,free and easy failsafe.Edited by B NEGATIVE - 12/2/13 at 12:21pm
