Each knob is rated at 20W, so hooking up more than one fan to each 3 pin header is possible.  We tested it with 5 Sunon 1.5W fans, all were powered on without any problems.  The unit did get a little warm after a few minutes, but that is normal and shouldn't affect its operation.  We only pushed to about 8W since we ran out of fans to chain it together with, but we're pretty confident it can support a good number per knob.  Here's a shot of it installed in a black case:

   Let's see what it looks like in the dark:


All at minimum


Full, middle, middle, full speeds

   Overall, the unit is easy to use and setup.  Plug in your fan and your set; as long as your fan is already tailed with a 3 pin connector.  The clear knobs and LEDs that display different speeds is a nice aesthetic touch.  With a 20W rating, the knobs can handle quite a number of fans chained together.  At $25 USD, its not at all expensive.  If you're looking for a affordable bay bus, take a look at this unit and give it a shot.



Pros:

  • Easy to setup
  • LED indication of speed
  • 4 Channels
  • 20W rating per knob
  • Affordable


  • Cons:

  • Uses 3pin only, no adapter
