    That knob controls how awesome my computer is. If it's turned down, it sucks, if it's turned all the way up, it can play Doom7 at 8000x6000 at 760FPS


















































    It controls th CPU fan, the big red one

    Just picked up the fan controller a few days ago. You should check into one like it RJ. Sunbeam Rheobus. Controls 4 fans. Only like $25 on Ebay IIRC.

    Anyways, nice rig dude. :D

    I actually have 7 fans. 3 intake. 2 exhaust. 1 on the processor heatsink. And 1 in the power supply. At the moment the fan controller is only hooked to one fan- The CPU fan. It's sooooo load it was getting unbearable. When it's turned all the way up, it sounds just like a hair dryer inside my computer. Keeps my $800 processor nice and cool though. :)

    It's easy as hell, just buy the parts and go

    OR

    Get yourself a junker and dissasemble it

    Motherboard manuals are pretty comprehensive

    Okay I see I think. It's just to keep the inside of the case cool? And to get hot air out, cold air in? Hense the exhaust and intake fans?
    Thanks

    Yes. One big fan would be dangerous. Who wants to have one large 12" fan on the side of a PC? I've seen it... and done it, but yeah. I have only 4 fans in my PC, I need more. 2 exhaust, 1 CPU, 1 GPU, no intake. Gets too hot in that thing. Need an intake in the front before I attempt puting the side cover back on.

    There are plenty of articles on the net about how to build a PC. It's pretty much the same as building an engine, or any of the more involved projects we come accross while working on our trucks. As long as ya pay attention to detail, have some mechanical ability and refrain from stupidity, you'll be fine. :D

    All of your fans should be exhaust fans.... no matter what... I don't care if you have a $8000 Alpha processor, there are vents in your case for a reason... they bring cool air in.... Fans should be used for removing hot air only.... Turn them around boys... you'll drop your internal temps be another few degrees...
