Lamptron’s New Fan Controller – Meet the FC-9

Lamptron sent us this package prior to the July 4th holiday (happy birthday America!), but we weren’t able to get it up before. The Llano review took up all of my time before leaving town. Hopefully it was worth the wait.

This controller is very unique. We will be getting one for review when they are available, but in the mean time feast your eyes on the new Lamptron FC-9 and its many colorful configurations!

The photos did come with a copy of their newsletter, which contains all the pertinent specs and features.

The FC-9 definitely looks like a solid controller. Having only four channels could cause some people alarm; at least until they see that each channel can handle a whopping 50 watts! I think my flock of fans can fuse together to come up with enough of a load to test this beast. We’ll certainly be looking forward to seeing how it performs.

I like the clean look & color options. Also, I like sliders personally. Much easier to visually tell where you're setting them (in case you change things & wanna change them back).

Agreed.

Sweet design; I like the minimalistic look of the sliders compared to the "bulky" knobs and gaudy touchscreens on most. This would look great in blue with my Raven RV02 :D

LOL, you aren't the first to notice. I've been around for longer than that actually. I'm more of a browser than a poster. Trying to change that.

Very nice, the Blue LEDS compliment the Brushed aluminum look. Id be tempted for one in my CM690.

This would have gone great with my HAF932! Shame I've just got a Zalman MFC1plus :(

:drool: loving the black one with red leds.

would look pretty nice in my Silverstone FT02

i dont understand why any one would need 50w per channel!!, most pumps I have seen use ~20w

That's the beauty of it...every color is the same controller, you can change it as you please.

As far as 50W/channel, it's helpful for controlling multiple fans on radiators (or just multiple fans period). My rad has 28.8W (three delta screamers rated for .8A/each) on it.

Some people use push-pull on their rads. I've actually done that before with six .65A Panaflo fans, which would total 46.8W. Previously, I had to use two channels on a 30W / channel controller. With this, I could run that setup on just one. :)
