-- IceePC Color Control
-- Price: $24.99 USD

   By now most of you have probably seen or even used either a fan bus or bay bus to control your fans.  There are so many choices now, that making one yourself may actually cost more money or time.  If that's the case, in steps the Color Control unit from IceePC.

   This 4 channel bay bus allows you to control the amount of voltage each fan gets, thus lowering speed and noise when needed.  Here are some specs off the packaging:

  • Input Voltage 12 V
  • Output Voltage 7 V ~ 12 V
  • Output Current 0.35 A ~ 1 A
  • Input Connector Pitch 2.54mm , 3 Pin
  • Output Connector Pitch 2.54mm , 3 Pin

   The Color Control fits in any 5 1/4" expansion bay.  The knobs stick out a little under an inch.  If you have a case that has swinging panel door, check measurements before purchasing.  The unit is about 3 inches deep.

   Each channel has support for tuning from 7 Volts to 12 Volts.  The clear knobs use LEDs to  indicate minimum, middle and maximum speeds using red, green, blue respectively.

   The unit is powered by your standard 4 pin molex.  The printed circuit board elimnates the mess that most home made bay buses exhibit.  Each channel uses a 3 pin header for your fan connection.  This poses problems if your fan is un-tailed or uses a 4 pin connector.  Additional connectors for your fans may be needed depending on your situation.
