Reostat for extremely high powered fans


Can you use fan controllers for the extremely high powered deltas? I was looking at getting 3 ofThese (220CFM Deltas) for my BIX 3 radiator, but I dont want to get them if I cant turn them down when I want to sleep.

To my knowledge arnt most fan controllers to weak to provide max power to the high CFM deltas? Is this false, or if its true, what fan controller can you use?

Personally I haven't seen any controler that would be powerful enough, so I'd suggest some DIY construction. This way you could even hook them to one channel...

I don't recommend those 220 CFM Delta fans if you intend to undervolt them. They don't undervolt very well.

These 190 CFM models undervolt nicely though.

No, they are still too powerful for any fan controller you can buy.
