How does this fan controller compare to that one.

http://jab-tech.com/Scythe-KAZE-MAST...k-pr-4354.html

Does this one come with 3P wires or 3P-4P wires.

i am not to sure if am honest am no expert i just know i want a fan controler when i get my W/C setup this year, sorry..
post #9 of 12
i have read the info on that site, and i am not sure how much wattage each chanel provide plus this one is 4 chanels rather that 6, if you have ten fans try to find a 5 chanel controler that provides enough power for two fans (about 10w on each chanel)
post #10 of 12
The sunbeam is 30w per channel so its possible to run quite a few fans on each channel check out the Lamptron range
