These 2 fans run at 1500rpm all the time and its noticable to hear them over the pc even though i have all the fans set to high on the Phantom fan controller. I was thinking if its were possible to maybe plug my 2 cpu fans into the phantom controller instead of the 2 side fans which i would power thru a molex as i have them on high thru the controller anyway it wouldn't make a difference.
Do you think this would work ok? i suppose the downside if indeed it would work is i would not be able to monitor the rpm of the cpu fans now and i would proberly need a fan extension cable as the wires on the 2 fans are kinda short. Hiding the wires as well could be an issue as i dont really want fan wires dangling over my board.
What do you think is it worth a shot or would i be better off just leaving the setp the way it is?
Everything is worth a try. I have my H70 fans connected to my Phantom fan controller and it is nice to be able to turn them down when not in heavy use because they get pretty loud.
