    Hello everybody.
    I wanna buy the ACCELERO XTREME GTX 280,but i want to make sure first,i can use my Fan Controller ZALMAN MFC1 Plus ,to speed up the fans for this graphic card cooler.
    My PC specs : Intel 7 920 ,Gigabyte GA-EX58 UD5 , 3 GB DDR 3 Corsair 1066 Mhz,Geforce GTX 285 ,WD 6400 AAKS,DVD RW LG,Sound Blaster X-FI Xtreme Gamer,PSU Corsair CMPSU-650 TXEU
    I didnt' OC nothing,yet.
    Will i be able to use the fan controller for this cooler?
    Is my PSU "big enough" if i buy this cooler ,plus everything i have now?
    I have 3 case fans 120 mm ( 1-front,1-on side,1-back)
    Thanks in advance

    You don't need any fan controller. It plugs in to the cards PWM plug and you can alter the speed with EVGA Precision or rivatuner, if needed.

    PSU doesn't have much to do with cooler change. But it consumes less wattage than the stock cooler :)
