Fan controller issue?

I was looking at some fan controllers, and I noticed that the outputs were measured in watts, not volts. Intrigued, I looked closer through the user's manual and the webpage, and I noticed no mention of output in volts. My AF 120s operate at 7-12 volts. With only watts, how do I convert from watts to volts without amps. (there is no mention of amps on the webpage or the manual.

any fan controler should be able to do at least 5 and 12 volts even if it is a simple switch so that why it not and most can do anywere from 5-12 depending on where the watts is just for the fans power consumption so that you know how many fans can be attached to one channel

You say that watts is for the fan's power consumption, but my fans power consumption is measured in volts.

my bad its giving your operating voltage and the corsair websiste you consumtion is given in amps and amps times voltage= wats so if you running at 12 volts and .13 a you have a consumtion of 1.56 watts a fan so it should be fine as long as each channel can handle that
