Lamptron Announces CM615 Fan Controller

Lamptron announced the CM615 multi-channel fan-controller. Built in the 5.25-inch form-factor, it can handle up to six channels, supplying up to 30W of power, each. The controller draws power form a 4-pin Molex connector, and plugs in to your motherboard, using a standard USB 2.0/1.1 header. Using that, it can interface with its included software, which can let you monitor, log, and stream your cooling data over the Internet. The controller features a brushed aluminium bezel, framing an LED touchscreen. The controller lets you control fans either arbitrarily, or using temperature targets, with which the controller handles speeds to maintain a target. You can also create speed/temperature curves using the software, for the controller to follow. It features start boost, with which you can fire up all fans to 100%, at system start-up. The company didn't reveal pricing or availability information.

Renders are cool, but seeing the FC in action would be nice as well.

So close! They should be using SATA power connectors by now.

I have an el cheapo psu which comes with only 2 SATA cables: one to H100i and the other to HDD. Molex is actually advantageous to me right now. They can supply SATA power + converter I suppose.

Might need to get some heatsinks on those chips.. Looks nice shame it only does fans.

:wtf:

That's a bad Fourstaff! Whatever you have under that H100i deserves better than that.

I personally don't want to have to put in an entire string of molex connectors for my HX850 just to power one fan controller.
