Default Fan Controllers...

okay, basically, i need a fan controller which can control 2+ fans, with an LCD screen. My second problem is that my fans only have the 4 pin power connectors not the other small one. if i got a few of these cables could i hook it upto my fan contorller?

i've got two 120mm LED fans i'm planning on intsalling.

~thanks

No i don't think it would. If you have fans that are powered directly from the power supply. That looks like it supplies power from the PSU to the fan, and not the fan to a 3-pin power supply. Basically, that looks like the opposite to what you want... i think!

Hope this helps... though ive confused myself a bit lol
