I have the CM Staker 830 case and i was wondering what are the best 120mm fans i can put in the 4 slot side pannel. I have some sythe S-flex and they dont seem to push much air, are there better fans out there or is this the norm for 120mm fans?

Should i also get a fan controller to controll the 4 side panel fans?
or two fan controllers to control all 8 fans i have, 7 120's and zalman 9700? if so can i remove the stock fan controller with 9700.

depends how customisable you want it to be.. If you want to adjust performance/noise ration you could do with the 2 controllers or finding one that supports 8 fans.

Eh I don't know bout that. This is the first time I went with a fan controller, I went with the AeroCool Gatewatch2...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999160

All in all, It seem's to be pointless, Unless your wanting look's... It don't seem to do much at all. The temp's I guess can be nice to look at, But when I go to manual set the fan's rpm, They don't seem to change at all, An with that unit you don't have much room to to change the rpm's.

Maybe Zelman make's a better one? But this one is useless, Plus the power connector an fan connector's are to short! Very hard to hide the wire's when they so short.
