Fan Control System


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!


I have built a system almost exactly as the "MD-1510/LI" from Lime Technology. There are three 5-in-3 drive cages, each with their own fan. The case has two large fans and there is also the CPU fan.


Is there a fan control system with drivers for Linux? My ideal setup would be individual control of all fans based on temperature readings. For example, one could use the highest drive temperature for each drive cage to control that cage's fan, and one could use temperature sensors on the motherboard to control the chassis fans.


There are many fan controllers with manual control on the market (e.g. Zalman ZM-MFC1), but I'm looking for a programmable system, which can adjust fan speed depending on temperature inputs.


I have replaced the stock fans in the drive cages with Noctua NF-R8's which made a huge difference, but one is always looking for the perfect solution...
