Heat Controlled Fan Regulator

Looks like a good gadget for noise control.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This Heat Controlled Fan Regulator was developed for the purpose of providing you with the benefit of a stable computer and at the same time giving keeping the noise level of your fans to a minimum. It regulates the fan speed of a computer according to the CPU status. Hence, when the CPU is idle, the fan speed will be reduced while still keeping the computer stable. Similiarly, when the CPU is experiencing load, the fan speed will increase to dissipate the extra heat that results. It is rated at 4 Amps thus having enough capacity to handle a few fans in a computer system.

but if you do rc5 or f@h, then you have to need to have your fan slow down.

Looks like a thermistor controlled circuit with no rpm monitoring by the picture. No specs available.

These two circuits will do the same.

see

for explanation.

Would have to stick the thermistor into the CPU heatsink
