Default Need a good fan controller...

Well I'll have 4 fans to control when I get my new VGA cooler (since it is 3 pin and not 2 pin like the gfx card's connector).

I'm limiting myself to 30 bucks or so.

Here's what I've come up with (in my order preference, #1 being what seems best)

1) Sunbeam
2) Zalman
3) Scythe
4) Sunbeam

Let me know if you think I'd be able to save 15 bucks and go with #1...

Also, no one saw or seemed interest in my last post so if you want to take a look at it that'd be fine...not too important...just some questions on HDMI cables...

Thanks everyone

I have one of these and it does the job nicely. Even mounts in tool less cases. I just laid her to rest and got the Power Watch to replace it.

Seems like it's discontinued

Anything seem decent that you (or anyone else) can suggest?

If you really like that one that Setishock recommended it is on Ebay

It doesn't end for 2 days but has free shipping and is only at 20 bucks right now. But there is only 1 on there..

I used to use a Vantec Nexus, it looked pretty cool with blue led rings around the knobs.

Any one of those you picked would be good but I think seti's looks the coolest. If you can't get that one then get the Zalman you listed.
