    My Vantec Fan Controller will be here today. I will have a Zalman CNPS7000A-Cu hsf on my processor and it comes with its own fan controller that works from 5 to 10v. The Vantec controller works from 7 to 12v. I'd like to plug the hsf into the Vantec. Do you think I should use the Zalman controller or hook it up through the new Vantec? It would run faster at 7v than 5v but will it be enough to hear a difference? This will be on my P4 2.53 system which is overclocked.

    I'd hook it up to the Vantec unit myself. I'm not keen on 5v for a fan as most require 7v for a good start (5v can result in the fan not startin' or burnin' out to abnormally high drain at low voltage).

    Got the Vantec installed. Wow! What a difference it makes! On the lowest setting I do not hear the case or cpu fans. Now I can browse silent and turn it up while gaming.

    Is it okay to run a Volcano 7+ through a controller? The Vantec has a warning not to use an adjustable speed fan through it.

    You can run the 7+ thru it but what the warnin' means is that ya must remove the 7+'s speed controller first which is no hard task.
