i see that the lamptron is very good, but unfortunately it's out of my price range

i heard that the logisys fan controller tend to have problems after 1 month
and the NZXT Sentry 2 seems to make some fans make strange noise
and I don't know about the kaze master

This is absolutely my vote as well, even though it isn't a choice in the poll.
I run a rheobus and a rheobus extreme in my two rigs, both were easy installs and neither have given me issues.

Here is the FC4, it's only $29.99+ shipping... Currently, Newegg only has the silver model. That's the one I have, but I took off the front casing of it and spray painted it black and it looks great to me.



It DOES come with a very short molex power connector, though.... I had to work some magic to get mine hooked up properly without messing up my cable management. If you have a molex extension, you would be fine. But if not, make sure you have adequate room for it to each.

neither does the scythe, from scythe usa I was told they were incompatible with several types of fans (I didn't believe him).

Get the Lamptron.

I did that to my lamptron, but to the back so I'd have both black and white - only to realize the holes weren't tapped through.

i don't know about the sunbeam one. from newegg reviews, it seems that it's ok but not great. that scythe kaze master is actually better. I think I might go with the scythe kaze master or the sunbeam one(because of the cheap prive
)

DON'T get the Lamptron FC-2. It doesn't handle PWM very well, and makes a lot of fans squeal when turned down. Search around, we had a big thread about this the other day involving Scythe fans. Several of us ended up switching it for the Sunbeam Rheobus/Rheobus Extreme.

The FC-2 looks good on paper, but in practice it's fail.
