Product overview

  • Control up to three fans and precisely select their speed through the use of dials
  • 10W per channel provides you with a great amount of power for a majority of high-end fans
  • 4-pin PWM fan connectors that are also backwards compatible with standard 3-pin fan connectors
  • Powered using a standard 4-pin Molex connector

  • Two USB 3.0 ports gives you the ability to easily connect external USB devices

Precise control of each fan
This brushed aluminium 3.5-inch fan controller is able to manage up to three fans and provides you with USB 3.0 ports. Each channel can accept fans that have a maximum wattage of 10W, which is a great amount of power that will allow you to use a vast number of high-end fans with 4-pin or 3-pin fan connections. Each fan can be controlled via the dials, so you can have precise control between high or low speed settings.

Easily connect external devices
Two USB 3.0 ports have been located on this fan controller to give you an easy way to connect external USB devices to your computer. The ports are able to achieve up to 5Gbps transfer speeds and will add USB 3.0 connectivity to cases where a USB 3.0 port may not be already located at the front of the case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well built I bought this to control three extra fans I have in my case. I leave my CPU and rear case fan connected to the board. USB 3 works fine. Make sure you have a spare USB 3 expansion on your motherboard. It is really solid and made from what looks to be aluminium so its not going to break. Only problem I had is one of the channels runs very slowly even when turned to full speed so I will be taking it back to Maplin to swap it.

doees this mount on the back of the case or in the disk bay or what?
Asked by: Joseph Case
This would mount where the floppy disc or SD readers would fit, the 3.5 inch one.
