I'm working on an external water cooling box, which uses two 120mm fans which draw 1.6A each. (Delta 1212SHE) I need a rheostat switch that can handle two of these at once, all the 12v rheostats I've come across for computer use aren't rated for much more than 1A. I'd need something that could handle 3.2A, so probably 4A to be safe. Anyone know where I could find such a dial?

I'm actually looking for a bare rheostat, like one dial, that can handle both fan. Not a premade bay bus type deal, thanks though.

12v x 3.2A = can handle at least 38.4W.

I wouldn't be opposed to buying an entire baybus and taking it apart, but I haven't found one that has individual rheostats capable of handling what I'm looking for.

Like that, only rated much higher.
