Automatic fan control help (repost)

I am kinda on a time constraint, so sorry I am reposting

hello everybody :hello: , I will be purchasing an antec 1200 v3 case and i will be adding a 2 fan radiator outside of it. My problem is that i will need to control 8 fans automatically and individually. I know for a fact that almost all motherboards can't support this, and that most fan controllers are not automatic(that control 8 fans)

I will accept any suggestions

thank you :na:

  1. I don't want to be rude, but does anybody have any ideas, because time is kinda running out
  2. I think what you are looking for is tricky at best - looking at fan controllers and controller hubs, I'm not finding much that'll control that many fans automatically (you knew that). This Aquacomputer Aquaero 5 LT USB Fan Controller has some promise but is pricy

    or perhaps the Sunbeam 30W Rheosmart 6 Channel Smart Fan Controller

    pretty much in any event, you would need to split up the fans (some connected to mobo, some to controller) or use splitter cables
    Probably not much help but about the best I can come up with

    The problem with the sunbeam 30w Rheosmart 6 is that I kinda don't know how to hook it up. and i don't have any sensor input
  4. Y splitters for your fans.

    This will let your board control 2 fans through 1 3/4 pin connecter. :)

    but what if i want to record each fans individual rpm?
  6. I was reading about the Aquacomputer Aquaero 5 LT, and it seems to be a great controller, but they all say that it is a pain in the a** to work.
  7. any other suggestions?
  8. I actually got that impression just by looking at it

  10. can i control 8 fans with the amptron FC Touch?
  11. If i hook up two fans to one port on the amptron FC touch, what do the rpms read?

    If they are the same fans then they will run at the same speed.
