    Theres a big problem with controlling case fans.. All motherboards are different, so it would require different software per motherboard.
    Solution to control case fan is an external system. Think of it like have a bunch of dimemr switches on front of case that let you change fan speeds.

    Yeah. I've been looking at the Cooler Master AeroGate 2.

    But I don't want something like that yet...

    If you don't mind me asking, why not? A fanbus works great, and you don't have to worry about whether your motherboard will support it or not. Mine fits in a 3.5" slot, so
    it's just filling a space that would have otherwise not been filled.

    If you want to have vairiable fan, but without a fanbus, you could just buy a fan with a thermal diode, though you won't be able to actually change the speed yourself.

    why take up a 3.5 when u can take up a pci-case slot instead. Systems from thermaltake have a panel of controls that screws in where a pci or agp card would but dont actually connect to the motherboard.

    Have two of those. Not the greatest invention...

    I live in South Africa. Sure we can get Thermaltake parts.. but only if the vendor stocks it. but they usually don't have stuff like that. And when they do, they charge the hell out of you for it.

    Newegg.com does not ship internationally. At this time we only ship within the United States and Puerto Rico.

    Too bad too



    Anyyywayy, last I checked the Thermaltake stuff only controls 1 fan per controler. Same with that Zalman (at least from what the pictures show) Since the very first post said "my two case fans" I'm still thinking a proper fanbus / rheobus is the way to go
