In 10 seconds of searching xoxide found my answer lol found a y splitter for pwm fans that takes 1 3 pin converts it to 3 and a internet enabled fan controller from bit Felix so I can monitor my temps via my cell.

I really like the manual dial type fan controllers. I've had issues with the software type controllers in the past with the shitty software. That's not to say all the software style controllers suck.

Lamptron FC9....4 Channel 50W per channel.
I'm not into monitoring my temps with software nor do I need PWM controlled fans.
The FC9 Lamptron has robust sliding knobs.....very smooth and effective.

During normal day to day stuff all fans run at about 50% (very quiet), only running LinX for stability testing high OC's do I push the fans to around 80% and monitor Core Temp on my desktop.

This is the Lamptron FC9 I decided to gowith...no whistles n bells....just a solid robust Voltage Control Controller. The LED's do brighten / dim as knobs are adjusted for fan speed. Numerous color LED's are selected by using a "jumper"...

Lamptron FC9 5.25in Bay 4 Channel 50 Watts Per Channel Fan Controller 7 Colors LED - Black

if you haven't decided on a cooler, i'd say stay away from h100i

I own one since april and kind of regret it. you might find it more trouble than it's worth, unless you got lucky and got it to work right away.

a top end air cooler should do as well and run quieter with same or cheaper price.


i am planning to switch back to air with either dark rock pro 2 or noctua d14

The only benefit is the h100i uses less case space, if its radiator/fans fit in your case that is.

Got a 110 myself and had absolutely no issues.. But yes, be sure it fits first, just like anything.

Whats your issue...NO dont go go back to Air vs Liquid due to this poster...I've purchased tons of HW and the H100i worked great out of the box...no issues....just didnt cool enough compared to my H320 for higher OC's!!!

Please guys, if you have negative experiences with HW be detailed when posting your problems!!!
