Hi.

First off, I was wondering if this and this were compatible, ie would I be able to hook up the latter to the former to regulate fan speed? I'm pretty sure that they are compatible, I just wanted to make sure. Does the former fit in one of the smaller slots, the ones below the CD drives and above the hard drives?

Also, if I am intending to mount the fan directly onto the removable side of my case, how and with what should I mount it to minimise vibration and noise?

Thanks a lot. :)

Minimize vibration and noise? With a Delta fan? Err, maybe hire Chuck Norris?
There's a reason why the Deltas are advertized as server fans. The noise is unbearable for a normal person.

And when do you think you'll need the Delta fan roaring at 60 dBA? Why not just simply get a little more reasonable a fan.

Anyways... The controller does not list ANYTHING in its specs that matters. The fan should work with it okay, though. It seems like it has a small 2-pin or 3-pin, the fan controller should have connectivity for those.

For mounting, rubber washers and/or rubber mounting pins should help.

The controller will fit into the "smaller slot".

I'm not concerned about noise, so I figured I would get something that can shift air fast. Doesn't bother me, just wanted it to be efficient.

Thanks for the help.
