Light up your fans — Joe
SUMMARY: Adjustable fan with blue LEDs.
There is a small potentiometer which allows you to vary fan speeds:
The control rotates in an arc of about 270 degrees. I turned the adjustment screw, measured fan speeds with a digital tach and found the following:
- LOW: 1350 rpm
- MID: 3400 rpm
- HIGH: 4150 rpm
The pot is labelled at 20k, so if you wanted to run the wire to something like the front of the case for easy access, it looks doable. In addition to the speed control, it also
lights up! There are two blue LEDs that would look very cool in a windowed case. These are not dim – they are quite bright and do not vary with fan speed. I think using something like this as a front case fan would throw some light into a case.
Thanks again to ICEe Computers for sending this our way.
