i decided i need a 6 channel Fan Controller...

3 channels for the 3 fan zones (1 or 2 each) then one for the pump and one for the ram cooler im thinking of with the last one channel acting as a dimmer for an LED strip

thoughts?
could it work as a dimmer?
is it worth speed controlling my pump?


thinking of this one

i don't know if playing with volts on your pump is a good idea if it doesn't get enough volts cause it's turned down and it strains it self it could burn up it could also be haven't clue what i'm talking about.

I'm no watercooling expert, but not all pumps take well to being speed-controlled. You have to get a specific type I think.

Other than that, Lamptron's FC range is pretty good. I went for the FC6 since I only needed 4 channels and it's a nice unit.

I don't think it is worth speed controlling the pump. Pumps really don't make that much noise, so slowing them down really doesn't have any benefit. Let it run full speed to keep everything in the loop flowing. That doesn't mean that you can't attach it to the fan controller though to help with wire management, just let it run full speed if you do.

agreed, i'd just leave it and get some mounting gel from petra's i hear it reduces the noise so much that it makes the pump near silent http://www.petrastechshop.com/pegviabbl.html

The problem with running LEDs off a fan controller is that LEDs don't respond well to PWM - they tend to flicker a tiny bit when you put them on low. This can be cured using capacitors however it can be tricky to balance this right. Janik used them on pink project, dunno if you remember.

nope i havent changed any thing.... but its odd because it WAS working for the past like week and a half and then yesterday it just stopped mid gaming session. i moved it up a slot and it was fine and before i moved it it found it after restarting a couple times.
