I like it.

But can you zip tie the cables together? Maybe some sleeving might help also.

if you could make some sort of back panel to that i dont think it would be ghetto at all. i kinda like it on the back i hate when they are on the front of a case.

Micro, I was intending to put it in the fillport spot on top of the case at first, but I didn't want to cut and extend the cables. It just happened to fit back here. If I had planned it to go here, I would have made screw slots.

I might re-make it later, and paint it, and make it for only 9 controllers instead of 12.

Thats not ghetto - thats sweet!

Nice work man.

I cant make any further suggestions - they have all been made.

What are you using to regulate the voltage though? If those are just variable resistors, they can't be all that efficient. You'd have maybe 1/8th of the knob to play with (guesstimate) before the fans shut completely off.

I cannot tell you anything about them, except that they never shut off even with it turned to minimum.

The fans I bought use a proprietary fan controller, pictured.
You cannot increase the speed by increasing the voltage, meaning: at 12v they are at "minimum."
A normal fan controller doesn't work.

They have an extra 2-pin connector on them to plug into the devices pictured, and that tells them to draw more current, I assume.

They came with brackets, but only 1 per bracket. I can't fit that many, so I made my own, and made it more accessible.
