Hey I wanna install rheo's on some case fans without paying 7-12 bucks for some premade adaptor device. I'm handy with a soldering iron and have no problem cutting and resoldering/heatshrinking my fans cables with a rheo put in... but I don't know the specs Im gonna need on the rheo. Is there a formula that takes the fan's amperage into account or what?

Thanks.

you fans should have had a watts rating when you bought them. add the wattage from all the fans the reo or pot will control then look for that same rating on the reo or pot you buy
