Its actually call the Mono-cool fan controller. Why I don't know cause it has three out wires. The MB has one fan header and I was going to use the controller for the other two. But went ahead and ran all three through it.

I've read that the controller didn't have enough power to properly drive 3 fans, even if there's 3 out wires. Though I guess you're not running them at full speed?

It will run them at full speed. I didn't do it for a long time but why wouldn't it. Ill check it to see if its getting hot. I might move one back to a MB 3 pin header. I can control that one in the BIOS. Also the reviews said the connections break easy. I didn't notice any problems. But there small and I was careful. You can see them in picture 8

Ive tried a couple skins. The last was Back Row. I always seam to go back for one reason or another. Probably because I know my way around Confluence best. Currently I use a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6823191008

Its ok and has good distance but its full size and sometimes it hesitates when you scroll

Nice set up man, and love the dog Big Grin


Edit: I highly recommend checking out the reFocus skin. It's quite elegant and simple in use imo.
