    I picked up five Scythe blue LED fans with VRs today to replace the crappy fans I was running on my Q9650 rig. The fans were mounted on the WC loop radiators, four on the dual-rad doing push-pull and the last one on the single rad at the top of my case (One of the case's 140mm fans is pulling from the other side).

    Then I got thinking: The fans got VRs, right ? Lets use 'em.

    Two hours later (including replacing the fans and doing the mod and rewiring), I got myself a way to control those five fans from the front panel.

    So here's how it went:

    Protective eyewear ? Check:

    Drilling and Dremeling one of the drive bay covers:

    Fans replaced, VRs in place:

    Test run, works fine:

    Knobs placed (No, they don't line up. Yes, I made them in sort of a bat-wing shape on purpose. Yes, they are symmetrical):

    Not very bad, I think :D

    Totally agree, the controller fits right in with the rest of the face plate, kudos for a good eye and on the road to bigger and better things, no doubt, hehe.

    Cheers and Saludos
