For some time now I was not entirely happy with how I am cooling my PC, my NAS and my server. It’s not that anything is terribly wrong, it’s just that I am aware that things can be better… So I said I have to fix this.
The easiest solution would be to find a decent fan controller, add it to each setup and I am good to go. But that’s easier said than done. For a while I couldn’t find a solution that has all the features that I need and that isn’t overpriced. So as you can guess, I decide to build my own.
And the best part is that the entire project is documented and released as open-source open-hardware project. So hopefully others that have same “problem” can use it or at least use it as starting point.
I have also added some cool features like expansion headers for attaching I2C and 1-Wire sensors. And the software provides a really nice GUI to control the fans, program custom profiles. Maybe the coolest part (if you are nerd like me) is that you can access it remotely and the software also has a built-in API that you can use to remotely and/or programmatically control all of your fans!
