I was surfing around Xoxide and I came across this Mutifunction Panel. Apparently it can control 2 fans, works several media players and provides temperature readouts for $90. I'm planning to add another 120mm fan to my setup so i would have two 120mm fans in front hooked up to this mutifuntion panel. I was wondering if the panel is worth the money and if a fan controller is necessary. Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

My friend, none of that is necessary, but it is always nice to have. I say if you have the money, sure why not go spend it on something you want. But do this, wait a week or so and then if you still want it go ahead and buy it.<br />

BTW, I am not sure about what controller you're talking about so it is kinda hard to help <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" />

</div>In general, most 120mm fans run such a low rpm that they can be run on a full 12 Volts and still be extremely quiet. I don't feel you need a fan controller, but if you're needing one as a card reader, then that's your decision to make. If it were me, I'd use the $90 to purchase a Creative X-Fi. It will not only improve your sound quality and take a little load off of your cpu, but will follow you into your next computer also. Sound cards have a longer "obsoletion" time than most other parts, so it's a wise investment that will give benefits now and in the future <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
