My build will use 17 fans .. 13 of which are in a dual rx 480 rad box . the other 4 are intake and exhaust .. 140 mm a2 intake and 120mm x 2 exhaust . I want a single fan controller for the lot . Is there one on the market that will allow me to run say all the rad fans on 1 or two ( forget the term .... Lanes ? ) and the rest on the remaining ?
Another option would be to chain all the radbox ones on two lines, each going to a variable resistor/potentiometer, mount those somewhere handy, then from them straight to a molex line from the psu each, so as not to overload any one molex line
I like the looks of the scythe . though 12 channels may be overkill . My rad box on the afor mentioned rx 480 is a lateral set up -> fan-rad-fan-rad-fan -> . so I could either have 3 channels with four fans on each or four channels with three fans depending on the amount of juice each channel can handle . also I'm liking the http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12869/fan-841/BitFeni... see any compatability issues ??
Aye, believe that was the one
I'm going for a cheapish option, one that controls eight fans and has four temp sensors built in, and the other just a normal eight channel like the one I already modded into the build
I would go for four channels of three fans, just to lower the load
although it would be nice to be able to control each set of four as well, more playing with the airflow possibilities hehe
lower the internal two banks to create a small vacuum and blast the two banks on the outerside to full,
I intend to aim for all fans on minimum for everyday use, maybe play with warp speed when the Gf's not home 25 fans all giving it hell, can't wait hehe
I wouldn't put led fans in there unless you are making it so they could be seen, grills/mesh section etc,
I'm not a led fan guy personally, but have seen some nice builds with them, matter of taste/preference I guess :-)
when I get the rads, I'll do a mockup of how a single would've been mounted over the 240, probably as part of the build log though
@Delroy, our room is 5,4"x9feet with two Pc desks in it, on minimum fan speed my rigs really silent, if you trust android spl apps, I'll measure using one and post numbers,
The led rows of four are on the inlet and ehaust locations ( with black aluminium mod mesh ) so they are visable I will start takin pics and put together a log . Rad box done in like to weeks . Just because of waiting on mats ..
