Finding the right fan controller!

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a fan controller, but not to use it in a PC :)


I've made a small serverroom in my home, and i've installed fans in there. One for fresh air, and one to output the "old" hot air.

This works perfectly, but i have to adjust it manually as it is now.


I've used these fans:

Intake fan: https://noctua.at/en/nf-a20-flx

Output fan: https://noctua.at/en/nf-a14-industrialppc-2000

And right now i'm using this fan controller for them: http://www.scythe-eu.com/en/products/pc-accessory/kaze-master-ii.html


This system works, but unfortunately this fan controller, cannot be set to adjust fan speed, as long as temperatures are in the 15-35 degrees range, which the room will be in (hopefully not higher xD)

So, i'm looking for a fancontroller that can:

Adjust fan speeds using voltages, since it's not PWM fans

Adjust the fans according to the temperature in the room, that will be in the 15-35 celsius range.

Turn of the fan completely off, and start it again if the room gets hot. (this will only be for the intake fan)


I'm hoping that someone have stumpled upon a fan controller that can do this :P


Best regards, Dennis.

I'm guessing that controller uses probes? You could place probe in place where it gets hotter. Since those controllers are meant for inside the case and probes to be placed close to CPU or GPU area where temps are higher.

Damn, tried to use the sensors in the hardware, but as the sensor only get the outside temp of the equipment, it won't get above 50 celsius, so that won't work.


I have the older model of the current Fan controller i'm using, in my server, and that works fine, all the way down to 0 degrees :/

Why did they have to change it 😢


If i could find a used Scythe Kaze Server, that would solve my problems xD
