It is definitively the fan controller, not much range. Like someone else said, its like an medium/high switch. Also the stock fans are anemic, quiet but weak. I bought my case when they came out so I have the old style 200mm fans. With better fans, this case is hard to beat IMO.

It would be cool if you could use it for lights in your case. That way you could change the intensity or turn them off completely.
post #3363 of 18210
I have a question for all those talking about how week the fan controller is in the case. I am the type of person that runs all the fans in the case at the absolute max setting at all times, so I was wondering I am going to use a total 8 fans in the case, 10 if you count the 2 Scythe Splitstream fans I am putting on the H80. I am running everything with an AX1200 PSU, would I be able to connect all those fans to the PSU using molex cables so they can run at max all the time?

That looks really sweet and the price is awesome. Almost makes me wish I had more drive bays. With a nice fan controller and an optical drive you wouldn't have the space left over for this.

lol thanks!

Considering all the things you can do to change or hide cables, that doesn't even make it on my list of requirements.

So these fans are thinner than normal 120mms? Non led kinda make me sad but I guess for a 300$~ sli set up, functionality will have to trump aesthetics for this one

If you need thin fans, try these:

But I don't think you'll need them. They don't move much air anyway. Personally I wouldn't bother.

I have been thinking about what could be used in place of the BFUK for about 8 months and I still haven't really come up with a good idea. It's such a huge area....maybe an analogue pocket watch face? Or break open a round thermometer and mount it there for an ambient temp reading?

I know my mom always said, "if you don't have anything nice to say about something then don't say anything at all", but man, I will never understand why anyone would think putting a BFUK in the middle of a computer case would look good. As I have mentioned before, I bought this case in spite of that knob. It almost convinced me to give the 600T a pass, right up until I saw the inside of the case. That's what convinced me to buy it.

Of course. You don't need the fan controller at all if you're just going to run all the fans 100% all the time.

Do you drive your car with the pedal to the metal all the time too? (just wondering). With all those fans your computer is going to be freaking loud. Are you going to be folding 24/7 or something?confused.gif Computer room ambient 40c? Even with all my fans at 1/2 speed (5 case fans + psu fan and chipset cooler) and the 4 H100 fans set to the mid range, my case is the loudest thing in my house when the air conditioner is off. With the H100 fans set to low range it's not too bad. I'm sure glad I can control them.

I have even been thinking about purchasing a better fan controller. The one I'm using will only control 5 fans from 50% to 90%. So, as a controller it's not that great, but as front bling it's awesome.

Well to be honest fan noise has never bothered me ever. My father worked for IBM for 31 years and every IBM computer we owned had Delta fans in it. And as you know Delta fans are known for being extremely loud. Well being around loud fans like that for so long just made me used to it, and today's fans to me are pretty quiet. My last case in fact had 8 fans in it and I always ran them at the highest speed and it never bothered me, in fact sometimes the noise from the fans would help me fall asleep at night.

One of the fans I am using in the case will be on the Xigmatek 4 in 3 HDD cage I am putting in the bottom 3 5.25 drive bays. I am using fans with purple LED's except for the two on the H80 of course.

My room is the hottest and coolest in the house. Hottest in the summer and coldest in the winter. And no folding as I never leave my computer on for 24 hours to often. Only when I fall asleep with it still on.

If you so desire there is no issue running all fans directly powered by the PSU. Of course you would need to use the 3 to 4 pin molex adapter. And there is a finite amount of watts a molex connector can carry, can't remember and should not be a problem for all 10 fans, but to be safe I would break it up between two 4 pin molex connectors, daisy chaining 5 each.

If you had to choose a hdd bay w/ a 120mm fan, you would most likely have to give up either a fan controller or an optical drive. I know that will be a deal breaker for alot of people. But the Vantec HDD cooler a couple of pages back only took two slots, and still held 3 HDDs. Only problem with that that is you only get a 80mm fan with that one.

Newer 80mm fans aren't so bad. I installed two of them in my other case and I couldn't believe how much better they are then the old 80mm fans I had in there (the ones that sounded like a jet taking off).

@BuildingFirst37

I understand what you mean. When IBM XTs first came out, we had one with a case that opened like the hood of a car. Good thing too because the fan in it sounded almost like the cooling fan in a car too....

I can also relate to a "white noise" helping with sleep. I used to have a heater in my room with a fan. It wasn't the quietest contraption but it worked. Then one day it bit the dust and it took me weeks to get used to falling asleep without it. I actually had to purchase another fan to run at night to help me out. Still use it.

smile.gif Hey. I'm so happy to have joined the club, thanks for adding my name on that list!
It's the first time I bough a case of this quality, and I love it so much I had to join this club.

However, There are still a few things mysterious to me, mostly about fans.
Okay, yes, I've done a Google search, of course I've done an OCN search before asking this, but granted, I haven't read all the 337 pages of this thread so maybe this has already been asked before... In that case I'm sorry but I opened a thread and nobody responded... frown.gif

Err, please be comprehensive towards my noobishness on these issues and try not to laugh... Thank you. biggrin.gif

1 - I've seen people having mounted two external fans on the top, outside of the panel without having removed the 200mm one. How is it possible?
I can't reach the screw holes from the inside as the 200mm fan is here... And even if I pull off the 200mm fan and mount it again after having installed my two other fans, it's impossible (or it seems, at least) as there is not even 1mm thick left to work...
How do?
Arre there other mounting solutions (apart from duct tape and / or strings of course, I've seen clear neat installations with ssort of pins in the screw holes to fix it...)

2 - Want to put one 120mm fan on the front like I've seen some users do; guess I need the space of three 5,25" bays and it fits perfectly. But how can I mount it? On what ? Are there supports (mesh...) designed to mount a 120mm fan the size of three 5,25" for it to popiyt in there? Oh, also, please, I can't mod, cut, or use any saw, cutter of any kind. (Yes, I'm a total newb).

Thanks in advance...

This is what I used to install a fan in the 5.25 bays.
Xigmatek 4 in 3 HDD bay

Pictures of it installed are on page 107

As far as your first question...use longer screws on the 120mm fans on the top...mount them from the top into the case....

1. I mounted my top 2 120mm fans on the inside so I could get all 4 screws in each fan from the top.

2. I put a small square of double sided foam tape on the bottom of a 120mm fan and stuck it at the front of the 5.25" bay. It may be ghetto, but you can't really see the fan from any angle and not to mention you can't see the tape.
