I like them a lot but the shape of the diffusion comes off in straight lines and can be unsightly white on black glossy finish.

Now I regret I went with a Sentry Mesh fan controller:


I went with that one in the first place because it can control 30 watts per channel. I wanted to control the three Gentle Typhoon ap-15's on my radiator with one channel.


Edit:

Do you guys think this one will do the trick? You can change the stock sensors with an inline one, right?
http://www.aerocool.us/peripheral/touch1000/touch1000_feature.htm

Its 30w PER channel. More then enough. I had good use of one before it failed. The Mix 2 is better and thus far, reliable. I have a barely used one. The first one I had handle d 52 fans. I went without the controller for this build since I wanted a clean fascia. This second one is just sitting in my parts bin (hardwired the psu's 5v to hubs for my 14 sp120's.

I'm trying to find a good one that can handle my Delta's since a cheapo KingWin I had couldn't handle them. I also have an AeroCool F6XT but haven't even wanted to attempt to hook those power hungry fans up to it lol

I notice most people here go with a separate pump and reservoir (from what I can tell), is their a particular reason?

Is there a disadvantage to these?

The only reason I did was due to cost.

The disadvantage would be that it rather precludes a top return. . . Especially if you want the top as a fill / vent port.

You need to use the inlet on the pump housing for the return, and because there's then so little actual circulation thru the res chamber itself, if you're using any kind of nano particle coolant, they tend to drop out of suspension and don't necessarily pick up well again.

If you use plain distilled or maybe a clear or X1 type coolant, you could be OK, but I'd keep a 10 foot pole between a pastel or aurora and that type of res.

Perfect, thank you. I wouldn't be using any particle coolant but the other points you made are very useful, especially the your point on filling.
Thank you + thumb.gif

I had a ddc koolance top w/ their res tube. Ran pastel sunset yellow with no issues.

The advantage in having separate res an pump is you can pick any of each. Res-top combos are limited to compatibility, which is typically the same make.

In my experience, the combo typically purges the air that gets trapped in the impeller a bit quicker. Other then this, an advantage is the space saver it can be (and less fittings needed to connect as well).

I believe the new version, the one that Chopper posted, has the temp probe plug permanently attached to the LCD screen. I may be wrong though.

My eye fell on this one:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Should I be good if I plug that one i one of the ports of an EK xtc rad?

Should that give a good monitor of the water temp?
Or is it better to buy an in-line sensor? Got no display yet, so the above combo would be nice.

I would get ring temp sensors and just put them in at the block rather than purchase an extra fitting to install them off kilter and add a dead spot in the loop. You're likely to get better results. Cheaper as well.
