Loud won't happen with this fan controller -- but at the same time you won't get the best cooling either (because of the limited output voltage). At $20 it's hard to complain though...

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

I can't ever recall seeing a fan controller for $20, not bad even for its limits. :)

You get what you pay for. I'm partial to Lamptron models, but this provides a decent budget alternative.

Definitely. $20 shipped to the door for something that works is hard to find faults with. :lol:

Reminds me a lot of the NZXT Sentry Mesh.  The TT unit is a little more powerful across the channels (according to the specs).  But remove the red slider buttons and the LEDs and it is a very similar unit.  Wonder if they are being manufactured in the same place.............
