    Do you mean switches on your case to change the fan speed?

    What kind of series do you like to run in iRacing? I'm generally a sucker for the HPD as well as the A/B/C fixed setup cars.

    That'd only be an issue if you were using some crazy 250 CFM delta fans that draw like 30 watts. Personally I'd just tie the fans into the mobo headers and let the BIOS control via temperature.

    Yah, I'd agree with what @beers is saying and just utilize the headers on your mobo.

    You can adjust settings within BIOS... pretty much the switches are just going to adjust the rpm of the fans for you.
