If you were to buy a 5.25" bay - 4 fan controller/temp monitor which one would you buy? I like the digital readout ones. Anyone care to put down their 2cents. Thanks.

I liked the digital read outs but id rather just have one with 4 knobs just so i know itll work. But i think aerocool makes a good one

See if any of you computer geniuses can answer this. With the digital doc 5+ is doesn't control fan speed, just off and on. Could I get a y connecter for the fan connectors and hook up one to the doc 5 and one to a speed controller. Does anyone know the answer to this?

it looks good and gets accurate temp readings but they only thing i don't like about it is that 1 turn of the knob is 500 RMP which means alot of turning. The RPM level doesn't immediatly go down so its hard to tell where ur at in terms of fan speed.
