i need a realiable fan controller!


i have gone through 3 fan controllers :
hiyatek flip screen one, ( broke )
zalman mfc2 - blew up on me
zalman mfc1 - 4/6 of the fans only get 7v and the 4/6 of the resistors on it have burnt?

i have 5 fans, and need a good quality, solid, reliable fan controller, does anyone have any suggestions of the top of thier heads?

any help would be greatly appriciated

That's the same one that I use and it has been working well for me for the past 3+ months that I have used it. Matches my Rocketfish case very well too!

here is my personal favorite

Lamptron FC-2

The only issue I'm concerned with is that your in Europe which I do not know the availability of the unit overseas.

Just a matter of opinion, less functionality = reliable fan controller.

The Sunbeam Rheobus Extreme is the sturdiest one out there as grndragon57 has said. I just got one and I love it. NewEgg has it one sale for under $30 US. No bells and whistles though. No digitial readout of fan speeds and temps but just a good fan controller.
