Fractal Announces New Fan Controller Adjust 108

By - Source: Fractal Design | B 25 comments

Fractal Design today announced a new fan controller that enables enthusiasts to adjust the speed of case fans.

The "Adjust 108" integrates six sliders that control up to six fans and a maximum level of 36 watts per fan.

The manufacturer focused on a minimalist styling of the 5.25-inch panel, but still found space to integrate LEDs to show fan speeds. White indicates a low RPM and blue a high RPM. The LEDs also support a two-level intensity jumper.

Fractal Design said that it will begin shipping the Adjust 108 in the beginning of September of this year. The suggested retail price is $34.95.

    I was looking for a new one to replace my NZXT Sentry that died less than 3 months after I got it.

    amperage is also a factor and it doesnt say in the article. imo if it cant handle a delta fan it doesnt belong in a computer

    I wish they also integrated a duel 2.5" hdd/ssd mount in the back of these units to better use the space. Great look though!

    Wattage=voltage x amperage therefore 36 watts at 12 volts = 4 amps.

    Not sure why a fan controller makes news. Though if it won't make my fans sing a whiny tune like the POS overpriced sunbeam unit I have now, I would buy one.

    For a given power source, the two go hand in hand.. If you know the max wattage, then all you need to know is the given voltage to figure out amps.. amps = watts/volts watts = amps x volts

    Yeah, but this controller supports 6 fans. Why would you need that much cooling?

    Many people have at least 6 fans... 2x front, top, side, 2x rear...

    360mm push pull rad itself would use 6 120mm then the usual backside 120/140mm fan then most cases have front fans and some have side fans i can think of a few that would take 10 fans

    You'd be amazed at how many watts a few Delta fans on a radiator can pull. Probably be amazed at the noise, too...

    This will match my R3 case perfectly. Now all I need to do is spray paint my Noctua fans.

    Water cooling, I use many low speed silent fans. My graphics cards never go above 60C at max load and my computer is super quiet.

    There are a few jet engine type fans that move a ton of air... really only good for systems that you can put into a different room so you dont have to hear the noise they make.
