Hi there,

Wanted to know if I should go for Temp Controlled fans or PWM Fans.

Which ones are better and why?

(For a Gaming Rig)

Thanks in Advance

    I have yet, actually, to talk to someone who uses TC-type fans, and I am not exactly sure why.

    Perhaps the idea of having to deal with sticking a temperature sensor somewhere in your case, hoping that it's optimum, and leaving that bit of control out of your hands is a bit much for people.

    Cool, I understand what you mean.
    Since there's not much a price difference, I might as well go for the PWM fans.
