Lamptron to Release Slider-based Fan Controller
Lamptron, a China-based manufacturer of computer modding accessories, has announced the FC9 fan controller. The FC9 uses sliders to control up to four fans and includes customizable LED lighting. See inside for more pictures.
Lamptron is doing away with knobs on its latest fan controller. The FC9 uses sliders instead to control the fan speed, supporting up to four fans. Each channel can deliver up to 50W of power (or just over 4A), which is more than enough for high performance fans. The dimensions of the FC9 are 148.5 x 42.5 x 75mm, which means it will fit into a 5.25" bay.
The FC9 will be available in silver or black, with both models including customizable LED lighting. The FC9 supposedly requires a 600W+ power supply for optimal operation, but unless you really use that many high-powered fans it doesn't really make sense. Pricing for the FC9 has not been announced.
