whats with 20W and 30W fan controllers? Are 30W fan controllers for big fans? Iam new to fan controllers...
20W is plenty for a single fan unless you are doing something very high RPM or huge like a 360mm.

EDIT: I take that back. 200mm and 360mm fans don't use over 10 Watts. However, I know that really high RPM fans like the 5000 RPM gentle typhoon uses over 1 Amp, which is just over the limit for one channel on the Kaze Master. I know because I was toying with buying one of those 5000 RPM monsters just for goofing around.

I have my Kaze Master running 5 fans. Channels 1, 2, and 3 control a 180mm fan each. They run along the bottom of the FT02. Channel 4 controls 2 Gentle Typhoon 1850 RPM fans that are spliced together, they cool my CPU.

The 180mm fans require a little more juice to start up than 120mm fans. They will not start spinning unless I have the knob above about 1/3 power. Once they are spinning you can lower the power though. They take less power to keep spinning than to start. But if I leave the knob below 1/3 power the next time I start the PC I get a *BEEP* *BEEP* *BEEP* because the fan is not spinning.

EDIT: Just to clarify, the controller only beeps if you are applying power and the fan is not spinning. If you have the knob turned to off it does not beep.

The 2 120mm Gentle Typhoons on channel 4 will start spinning at the very minimum power the controller can provide.
