Question What’s a good fan controller?

Hello,

I am currently trying to get a cool looking reliable fan controller for at least 4 fans. Must have an lcd display. After doing some research I found this one;

Scythe Kaze Master 5.25IN Bay Fan Controller Backlit VFD Display Fan Temp Black http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...facture=Scythe

Is this a good one? Or would u say that I should go for something like AeroCool offers?

Also guys, I am interested in getting something like; “Logisys Remote Control Multifuction Panel” http://www.circotech.com/logisys-rem...ion-panel.html this is so u would be able to turn on/off ur computer via remote control. O silly me The only problem with this specific unit that it has a 20 pin mobo connector, So if you have a 24 pin motherboard you are in some trouble. Are all current mobos have 24 pin connectors? Here is the link;

I’m not sure if I like the idea of rewiring the wires. If you think I shouldn’t bother with this specific unit, can u plz give me a link to another one? All I really need is the Remote option.

If you can help me address this issues, ur help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks.

Well what do u think about the original one that I posted?
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...facture=Scythe
I might just go with that one.

My main problem now is finding the "Remote Control Panel" Someone told me that there is a 20-24pin "converters" but I can’t find them. Also can someone plz tell me how the installation for this would work? Does MOBO's have 2 spots for 24 pin power connectors? Or would I have to plug the "Remote Control Panel" connector to the PSU connector & would there be a 3rd plug to connect it to the mobo?... does this make sense? I'm confused lol. Also would I still be able to turn the CPU on, with the regular button push?

Thanks
