Okay. I've been around here for a while, long enough to see PC fashions change (Aesthetics I'm talking about) a couple of times over, evolving and improving. Now it seems to be the fashion to not have an optical drive, and to do away with superfluous parts. Less is more. I'm down with this. I was just pondering why so many people still fit rheobus type fan controllers to their systems. I'm not talking about the all singing aquacomputer ones that come with temp sensors to adjust fans in auto mode, I mean the ones where you have to set each fan(s) to the desired speed and then put up with the noise regardless of temperature. Or have it quiet and have to police helicopters think you have a ganj grow on the go. In September when I got my new case I bit the bullet and set speed fan up. It's not an intuitive process, it's poorly laid out and an nightmare to fettle the RPM/Temp curves to the optimal levels. Having said this, I did it, I got it set, and my rig has never been quieter, despite having more than double the amount of fans onboard. Then when the FPS count soars, so do my fans, and my temps stay comfortable. And this was free. I'm sure you're aware, although you might not be, speedfan is free! So why do people still install rheobus controllers? If its the wattage per fan header, get a mini distributor power board, they're cheaper than fan controllers by a long way, and take up less room. While I'm here, can I have a show of hands?
