Windows 7: Fan Speed Controller - Build your Own

28 Dec 2011   #40

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hi All

Excellent thread BTW, My 600T fan controller died on me yesterday (seems to be a common fault on this case) so was looking at building my own to replace it. From what i have seen you have been using a single potentiometer per fan. What would the calculation be for running multiple fans off a single potentiometer?? (is this recommended??)

I am wanting to run 4 fans (3 different types) off this single controller.

what type of potentiometer for these to go from 3v-12v for fans. if possible or is better to use minuscule variable resistors & what type would I need for these.

thank you for the help

A little help please?

Hey there, Nice tutorial. I really like your front panel and was wondering if you could please send me the links to the pots and dials that you used in your mod. I assume you need the same ones for a standard 12v fan? I am using 5 stock NZXT 120mm 12v fans btw.

Thanks for your help
