post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Getting a new case sometime in the next week, a Rosewill Smart One, total number of fans in the thing will 5 + the cpu fan...

Anyways i was wondering what people's different experiences were with controllers and what someone could suggest with the current market?

Sunbeam Rheobus extreme is the winner hands down. 30W per channel. A beast and great modder too. I suggest you clip those leds off immediately, but some leave them. Mine got clipped day one.

Depends what you want it to do, I've got one of theseand it works fine for controlling the fans, but if you want temperature sensors, I can't be of much help.

scythe controllers are a good choice if you dont use fans with high power consumption:

Ended up getting the rhobeus extreme, was considering a couple of sythe ones but after reading a review and manufacturing revision (http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/S...heobusExtreme/) decided that it was adequete. Saw another 6 channel one with 45W channels though.

And yeah i can see those led's being a problem, no point in having high def monitor sitting next to a box of carnival lights in imo.
