Windows 7: [Project] Fan Speed Controller

IT WORKS!

I have it installed on the front of my computer, now controlling 3 of 4 fans, my UV cathodes (or red), and replacing the start switch.

So it is not COMPLETELY finished, but I need a freaking break for a day or two. I worked on it all of today for almost 6 hours straight.

Here it is:

Looks great David, and very useful as well. Wish I had one on my machine.

Thanks Johnathan.

Of things I would want to fix from my experience so far, here is a list:
1. Longer power cables
2. Better connections
3. Have both male and female molex power connectors

They are cold cathodes that have UV light (kinda purple blue) instead of a regular colour. It makes anything that is UV reactive glow.

I am, but I am still wondering what I can do to make it better.
Or in some cases, fix it.

Mission control, we have a go!

Good work mate.

Aesthetically, how about adding a 'dummy' dial for the fourth hole?

Thanks.

No need, I have the 4th pot sitting on my desk, just need to solder it up and wire it.
Just needed a break today. I was happy to get it as done as I did.
