Pros: Good airflow and pressure.
I got these for some radiators in my new liquid cooling loop. I've got two in push-pull on a 120mm rad and they push through a lot of air. I've got another three pushing through a 360mm radiator and they still get a surprising amount air through. The fin density is fairly low, but the radiator is also very thick. They're set at ~60% or so with a controller.
Cons: I ordered eight and two of them produce a bit of a whining sound above 8 volts, but that's where they start to get loud anyway. It's just that the sound of more air whooshing through is something I can deal with if I need the airflow, but I can't stand the sound these ones make.
Not a deal-breaker. I get that if a fan is both cheap and high airflow / pressure, something has to give. Just buy an extra one or two if you're buying lots of them.
This review is from: LOGISYS Computer FP600BK 6-Channel Fan Controller
Pros: Bought this to control 8 fans (using splitters) used in various places in my PC, originally intended to be 480mm worth of radiators with push/pull.
It's a simple enough product and it does what it says. Knobs control the voltage for your fans between 5V and 12V so your fans won't ever be truly off. Molex plug for a PSU, surprisingly long cables can probably reach most fans in a computer case.
Cons: The knobs feel a bit flimsy but they're really not. Still feels like a slight lack of thought in that regard.
The LED's indicating that there is in fact a load attached to a particular channel are BRIGHT. They're not controllable either. I'm giving some thought to cutting them out. Between them and the overly bright power LED on my case, my office is basically lit up blue when it's dark.
Other Thoughts: 4/5 is a bit harsh, but the two cons are easy enough to address. Still, I would recommend this fan controller.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KINGWIN PEC-05 12" 3P(M) to 3P(F) Fan Power Splitter Cable
Pros: Plenty long enough. Chances are you won't be requiring additional extension when you use this. You get ~9 inches from your 3-pin power source.
Cheap. I would buy these locally if I wasn't buying something else at the same time just because shipping is more expensive than the product otherwise.
Cons: I ordered four and one of them came tangled up with the black wire from one end criss-crossing through the wires for the other end. The most distance I can put between both ends of the cable is about six inches versus the 18 inches you would normally get, so I can't use this one for reaching two far-apart fans.
Luckily, I'm using these to run eight radiator fans through four channels on a controller, so these extensions aren't meant to have great reach. Still, it looks messy and looks a wee bit bad on the part of whoever assembled them. A bit of cutting and soldering would fix this easily, though.
Other Thoughts: These are in fact three-pin cables so they include an RPM signal. However, the yellow wire goes from the power source to both fans so each fan is individually sending an RPM signal back to the source.
This could be a problem if you are connecting your fans directly to your motherboard header as it may get confused between the two RPM signals, and any monitoring software you use is likely to report the fan speed twice as high as the actual speed. If it's a problem, snip one of the yellow wires.
