A fan controller gives an easy way to vary the speed, and volume, of fans
A fan controller that can vary the speed of the computer fans can offer a better balance between noise and cooling. The X-Vision can control up to four fans and monitor the temperature in four different locations.
Shut down the computer and remove the sides of the case. Locate a spare 5.25in bay with outside access. Remove the front plate and slide the fan controller in, lining it up with the front of the case. Use the supplied screws to fix it in place so that it won't move when you press the buttons.
The next step is to connect the fans. Unplug the CPU fan from the motherboard. Plug the CPU fan into the plug marked Fan1 and the other plug attached to Fan1 fitted to the motherboard.
Use one of the thermal stickers to attach the TEMP1 temperature sensor to the CPU heatsink. Repeat these steps for any other fans with compatible power plugs.
Plug in the Molex connector on the front panel connector to a spare, standard Molex (not one marked Fan only) and installation is finished. Replace the sides of the case and start the computer. It is probably a good idea to enter the BIOS and check the CPU temperature to make sure that the fan is spinning fast enough.
