  • The three speed switch may come in handy for a DIY stir plate build.  Depending on your setup, it could *possibly* negate the need for a speed/control potentiometer in a stir plate build.  I’ve received feedback along those lines, although I haven’t tried or verified this myself.  HBF Reader Dave B said “Have used this for a stir plate setup… totally don’t need a potentiometer (speed controller) – just use the high-med-low.” via a post comment on 3/31/2015.

    It is designed to connect to a computer power supply unit, with the controller cable attached to the motherboard. You should be able to take any 12V power supply and splice the cables with this. Someone in the Q&A section mentions that there is a small switch to change the fan speed (can also be controlled by the computer if using as designed).

    The 80mm version is a few cents cheaper but prime eligible (though you can do the pre-order trick for this add-on).

    How do you adjust the speed?

    Have used this for a stir plate setup… totally don’t need a potentiometer (speed controller) – just use the high-med-low.
