Can anyone provide a 1 fan hub controller with a sliding lever to test the fan from 0-100%?? I should state I have no pc and only a laptop with me but I have fans in storage that I wanna test with the hub if anyone can recommend any.

Where will the fan go ? For a laptop you may rather use "cooling" stands with fans

Gotcha, then you just need a 4pin to USB adapter cable like this one, no need for a hub :

ya you need an molex or sata controller then some way of getting 12v too it and have it stand alone nothing to do with the laptop.

 

i cant seem to find a barrel plug to sata but i found a barrel to molex then you need to buy a dc to xx size barrel plug then buy the sata/ molex controller ether one that can hook up by external (with another cable) usb like razers pwm controller or a 5.25 bay controller that shows rpm. but thows go up by a persent most of the time so you cant fine tune it at 1% at a time like othere out there.

 

that or use a psu and make it run external with the green wire to ground method that would get you sata and molex. probably be cheaper too.

 

i guess a pwm fan would need a pwm single so i dont think a 5.25 bay controller would work. so i guess i would have to be the usb controller...
