Im planning to buy this case:

AeroCool VX-E PRO LE

http://www.aerocool.com.tw/index.php/products/30-pgsv/1...

It says there that it has 5 fans and I can install 6 Fans.
It has a fan control
but a line in the website says...

"Fan controller Controls 3 fans simultaneously with max combined wattage of 20W"


So it controls only 3 fans inside out of the 5 only 3 i can control?


But one more line says this
"Fan Control - A "3 Step" fan controller to control all the fans inside the chassis up to 20W."

All fans now?

Please Anyone have this case, Help me clear this up!
thanks!!!

The case comes with a "3 Mode" Fan control. You can choose between "full stop", "cruise (seems to be 60% speed)" and "full" speed. 20W should be enough to attach all five LED fans to the controller and it should still handle it. If that actually is the case ... I can't say, but it would make sense.

That case is a failure. If you like fancy and don't want to spent to much on the case, get a Zalman Z9 plus or Z11 plus.

You can always get a drivebay fancontroller and plug them into that, get better control over the fans you have in there

yea actually planning to buy one,
http://www.aerocoolaustralia.com.au/peripheral/strike_x...

but if i get it, it will make the 3 fan control useless?

and i more thing, the front of my current Case have a 2x Usb port and a some audio jacks(mic and sound)

If i would to get the case and the Strike x, I would have 4x USB ports and x2 audio jacks.
so i would have useless plugs on my PC?

how is this gonna work out?

If you plug the fans into that then yes, the 3fan thing will be unused, unless you add more fans in future and plug those into it,
And useless Usb ports is something I'm unfamiliar with hehe, you can always find a use for them :-)
External storage drive
Usb deskfan
Phone charger
I have two temp sensors running off a couple of my Usb ports, a flashdrive set for readyboost
A toolkit flashdrive that lives there till needed
And my phone cable,
No such thing as useless ports in my opinion :-)
