Hi, I am wondering if anybody knows what wattage the Arc Midi's fan controller (5v, 7v, 12v) is rated for?

I would like to watercool inside the case, and having 4 (possibly 6 Gentle Typhoons) on the built in controller seems a little risky to me, but I wont have space for a dedicated fan controller.

Here's the case in question:

Is there a Forum Rep for Fractal that could help me with my question?

Any help much appreciated!

When I chatting with Fractal about the controller. Ryan told me that the rating is 0.3A/CH, 50V DC. which is about 5w/ch.
If you want to watercool, look at the Swiftech H220. That way you wont need drive bay pump/reservoir.

I am looking at dual 240's (including a Monsta in the front!) so I don't think a H220 is my thing

Thanks for the replies guys! Rep given!

The Switech H220 is a 240 rad. You can mount that on top and your monsta up front.
That way you your ODD bays free.
You can also get Apogee Drive II and a single slot 5.25" bay reservoir or any other.

I am already invested with a D5 Vario, so I think I'll just get a res-top for that..

It's not the Dual Bay Res I'd be filling the drive bays with, either.. At the moment, I need to hold onto the ancient technology of CD's and DVD's - and in this case, a bleeding fan controller!

Unless they have changed it which I doubt they did, it's still 10W.
Oh, maybe there's a way I can change the potentiometer in use.. :/
