    fan controller

    I need a fan controller (or two) for 7 panaflow ultra high speed 115cfm fans. I have a superflower sf-609 in one system and that works great but I didnt want to buy 2 so I bought a noise isolator (which can control 6) and it is terrible. Fans make a lot more noise then the the noisemaster. Any suggestions?

    I have used the Sunbeam controller and really liked them. 20W per channel is usually enough for most people but I suspect your HUGE fans will be limited to 1 fan per channel. The controller has 4 outputs so you'll need 2 controllers or something else to add to use with the sunbeam.

    Another vote for the Sunbeams-

    Great controllers and I have yet to use a 12volt fan that I couldn't run two of per channel on one safely.
    Still overclocked and running linux on watercooled computers after all these years.

    Yeah, I have two sunbeams (black and silver) and they both work great. The only complaint is the usual...LED's are VERY bright. However, there have been mods posted here to fix that.

    If these are the fans then even 3 fans per channel is possible.

    I heard from some other online forum that it caught on fire! a few other people have had the same problem as well.

    I have had two of the Sunbeams, which were in use constantly for quite a long time.
    Only reason I just have one now is that since I wasn't using the other, I gave it to a friend.

    Neither had a single problem, ever.

    I just bought a Sunbeam to tame my new Delta Tri-Blade and my Vantec tornado. Unfortunatly I havent gotten it or computer parts to test it with. I hear they are great just the LEDs are extremly bright.

    One of my two sunbeams has been running for about 8 months pretty much non-stop (turn off PC on vacations and during storms) and I have never had ANY problems with it either.

    A wise choice and one you will not regret.

    For the power it can handle, it's dependability, and the price. You just can't find a better fan controller.

    hope so, after the debacle that is the noise isolator (would be better to not use a fan controller then this one) could just be a bad product but it doesnt give me any confidence in them

    the oly way i can see one catching fire is if someone tried to run like 3 or 4 tornados on on channel, that could overload it and cause some problems.
