I am about to get pc buildt this month
but i have one more hard decision to make

some weeks ago i purchased NZXT Touch 2 fan controller:

Good thing is touch, 5 channels so i can conect upto 2 fans per channel
it also has Automatic mode good since i have no experience with fan controlling at all.

The downside is the Design not fit so good with my Gaming Rig
HAF-X with 5 200mm Fans (4 are Led) + 1 thermaltake Spinq VT
all in my room keyboard, mouse even the clockradio, and my wristwatch has red led light.

so not sure if that NZXT will bother me
so i thogh if i should change it for

Lamptron FC6:

Can get it for a good price 30 euro

Love the Red design and u can see all the fans without pressing a button

The downside is only 4 channels so 2 fans has to share channel

The worst is it has no Automatic mode i think
so me that has no experience in Fan controlls have to controll the fans all the time, but i heard putting all fans on about 50-60% most of the time except when gaming is what to do.

Another problem is the shop probaly wont change the NZXT since i had it for 2weeks and there goes 42 euro down the drain.

Also not sure if the engineer that mounting my pc have experience with lamptron, i have to tell them to change the color to red over jumper
and put the temperature in C mode and so on...
the NZXT is more easy to install from what i read

Ok so the only reason i buy a Fan controller for
is for Design simple as that
(sure is a plus to controll your fans if doing overcloaking what i might do later
but for now is the design of a display on front of pc i looking for)
and the NZXT well...not go so perfect with HAF-X but... I could live with it

The Lamptron on other hand would be nicer
the one i can get is the black one and since HAF-X is black perfect
then the red light on HAF-X would combine perfect with the Red light on Lamptron.

What will bother me most with lamptron is
the Analog volume buttons sticking out (would have prefer red light touch buttons) and that is not automatic mode...

So what would you do if you were me
Would you go buy a Lamptron FC6 and trash that other NZXT?
or should i just keep the NZXT and forget about Lamptron...

You can get some fan splitters like these http://cgi.ebay.com/GELID-PWM-Y-Cable-Splitter-Adapter-Share-12V-Case-Fan-/160357585105?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item25560e90d1
An example would be two top case fans exhausting and instead of just plugging each fan into each of the fan ports on the fan controller, you can just use a fan splitter for the two fans into one fan port.

If you need more fans ports, then the FC8 would be a good choice: http://www.lamptron.com/products/view/Fan_Controller_FC8

The dial knobs are really useful and easy to use. It gives you a bit control so you can fine tune the "right" noise level that you want. With regards to the color, you have to pick the one color you want from the get-go and via jumpers on the back of the fan controller.

There's no other fan controllers that I would choose except Lamptron or them Sunbeam Rheobus.
