Looking for a decent fan controller

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking for a decent fan controller. With the sun beating down on my room all day it gets hot. I have posted the fans that I'm gonna get and the case I have. I'm still deciding if I want 3 x 120mm or 2 x 140 in front and top. I will be replacing the Phanteks 140mm in the rear. I'm not worried about noise. This may seem a little overkill.

Phanteks makes a solid little PWM hub, should fit perfectly fine on the backside of your motherboard tray

Even in most hot summer and very cold winter, temperatures in normal flat where normal people lives are similar (unless you're living in Siberia and -10 Celsius is very hot for you). You don't really need a helicopter. Two fans are enough for airflow. More you need if you're person who build your computer in circus style (lot of lights, fans and disco ball inside). Otherwise - as I said, two regular fans will be enough (with proper BIOS settings).

I have 3 fans in my case already. 2 of them are Phanteks that came with the case and 1 is a spare Corsair fan I had for my H100i. All 3 are full speed and having trouble keeping up. On idle, the inside of my case is 50 degrees. I actually had my computer shut down 2 days ago due to the CPU getting way to hot. This was on idle. I hate lights on PCs, hence why i'm going with Noctua fans.

What are your specs and load temps? 

Where are you reading idle temps?
