I have been looking on and off for a little while now at fan controllers. The problem I've seen with most that I've looked at is the connections are usually 3 pin. I have a bunch of cougar fans all 4 pin so I'd like to get them on a controller that can utilize them. Any recommendations for a decent 4 pin setup fan controller? Or will I have to end up getting a 3 pin one and getting adapter cables? If so I'd take some recommendations on those parts as well. Thanks in advance

dude, I am in the same freaking boat....I feel your pain! There are a couple scythe ones that work but I'm a little weary on them

Four pin fans will fit onto the three pin connections just fine, no adaptors needed
Just identify which of the wires is your pwm and that is the one that does not need connecting, the other three will line up with the header on the F.controller, the plugs should be moulded so that you can't do it wrong
