choosing a fan controller for 9 fans.....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
right now i have a aquero with 3 fans on it but i mainly use it for water flow and temp monitoring.

i also have a older version Lamptron FC-3 with the other 6 fans on it.
like all the other older lamptron controllers i get that high pitched whine at anything less than 80%

i have read reviews that Lamptron fixed that on the new design!

1 Ultra kaze on a 120 rad

6 yates (.30a max) on my 360 rad

2 140mm intakes

now the lamptron says 45 watts per chanel

so OHMs law says IxE=P so ....... .3a X 12v = 3.6watts X 6 fans = 21 watts

so with that math i should be able to put all 6 yates on 1 channel right?!?!?



i was actually planning on 3 channels for the 360 rad (1 push 1 pull per channel) 2 intakes on a channel and the exhaust on a channel.

so from all that random info does anyone think the FC-2 is a descent controller.

I want a controller that is less flashy than the FC-3 and deffiently one that doesn't whine when running at half speed.

thanks for any input and suggestions

What ive got is a 9 fans on one chnl to my fan controller if you want to just have one fan controller, but the fan controller has got to have a strong output to the fans to enable them to spin and not put the fan controller under and strain.

well the FC-2 says 45w per channel so that should be more than enough to power 6 H.S. Yates as long as my math is right.
