I'm planning on getting a scythe fan controller but I'm not sure which one to get, they're all priced similarly and after some research they all seem to be identical.

Kaze Server


I plan to use the fan controller with this configuration:

Channel 1
CM Hyper 212+ Stock Fan (4-pin)

Channel 2
Power Color 5850 Stock Fan (2-pin)

Channel 3
HAF 932 - two stock 230mm fans with 3-pin y splitter

Channel 4
HAF 932 - one stock 140mm fan, one stock 230mm with 3-pin y splitter


Will I be able to control the speed of the CPU fan with just 3-pin and no connection to the motherboard?
Will I be able to control the speed of the 5850 with only a 2-pin connector?
Will the two stock fans on a single channel work properly?

Q1: I think so but not entirely sure... might want to google that one.

Q2: Possibly but i honestly wouldn't want to try in case of frying the card...

Q3: Get a splitter cable (one 3 pin to two 3 pin) and yes.
