Default Fan Controllers

Aero Cool V12XT... would look awesome in my case TT Spedo Advance. I almost can justify the price even with some poor reviews. My only concern is the 3 pin connectors that its come with for the fans, all the cases fans are molex. Is there a 3 pin to molex connector? Also, would it be worth the fuss? Anyone have exp with this controller?

You can adapt molex fans to 3 pin, but you'll lose the signal wire. If the fan controller monitors RPMs then it'll be practically useless as the RPM wire doesn't exist on molex fans. If you're OK with no RPM wire, you can just install a 3 pin connector on your fans. I'm sure they make adapters but for a cleaner look you can buy the 3 pin connectors and cut the molex off. You'll need to have some soldering skills though.

I guess it would be quite pointless then seeing as all my case fans are molex... and im not about to drop a serious amount of cash to replace them. - Thermaltake Spedo Advance Package VI90001W2Z Black 0.8 mm SECC Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

I mean this case has some serious fannage, in number and size... 2x 230mm fans!!!

But thanks Slay idk why i could not find that cable...
