im currently debating whether to get a fan controller as my system is air cooled and sooo noisy plus id like to be able to adjust the speed of my GPU and CPU fans as they seem to be going full power all the time.
does anyone use these and could someone recommend one to me? i have the haf 922 case if that helps?

cheers in advance

you can control the GPU fan with your GPU software like MSI Afterburner, CPU fan speed can be set as "smart fan" in BIOS, and you can also manage to fix it with any good software like the ET6 that came with gigabyte boards.

For a fan controller, i was searching around and couldn't find better than this

Thanks for the quick reply
could never get MSI afterburner to work with my GPU fan think its due to using a Zalman VF3000 instead of the stock one.

i think it doesn't really matter as long as it's connected to the card's PCB.

I have a similar setup. I have a Gelid Icy Vision with no PWM function since it only has 3 wires hahaha fail so I hooked it up to a fan controller this one. No screen though but it has 6 channels and 30W per channel and its cheaper than most.
