Annoying but pretty

Anthony G., Newegg
17 October 2014
  • Pros: Nice eye candy...thats it
  • Cons: The warning beeps are aggravating and I they continued even after I removed the sensors from my hardware. I finally had it and punched it in the face. Save your money or if you gotta have one of these things, go with another brand. I personally found it useless aside from being an ornament for my PC.

uhhh....

  • Summary: If you get one that works, good on you but I would not recommend it. I don't have any of the original packaging for a RMA so I'm out that $60.
  • Pros: Looked awesome the first 5 seconds it was on my new build.
  • Cons: After those 5 seconds part of the circuit board actually caught fire and left some soot on the top of my optical drive.

Very good controller

John R., Newegg
20 May 2014
  • Summary: Installed this in a 17 month old Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced case to breathe some aesthetic life into it. It did not disappoint! Looks MUCH better in person then the pics. Very crisp detailed screen, easy to touch buttons, even with big hands/fingers. I didn't really need this as my Asus Maximus V Formula motherboard has an already superb built in fan controller. Bought it mainly for the aesthetics.
  • Pros: Touchscreen Visually Pleasing Not too bright Installs like a dream
  • Cons: Temp probe mounting tape is shotty at best

Nice add on

John B., Newegg
7 April 2014
  • Summary: I would look at this as a first time buy for a fan controller because it is cool and very unique looking, but its functionality is limited to that of a very basic unit. Still a good product and fitted what i needed.
  • Pros: Screen is visible from most angles Very quick and easy to change fan speeds Great color quality
  • Cons: Temperature monitoring is kind of broken. At a flat angle (Looking straight at it from its height) it has weird coloration.

Works but wish I didn't buy this

Ed T., Newegg
4 February 2014
  • Pros: Looks really cool on the front of the case, resembling a speedometer. Shows both C and F which as an American I like. I'm so tired of all these products only displaying Celsius.
  • Cons: I have all Noctua 4pin fans and fan controllers really only work on 3pin fans. Has a really annoying alarm that went off on me once which resulted in it getting ripped out of my system. Display can only be seen if it is below eye level, otherwise it doesn't look right and can't be read. There are better fan controllers out there, even by this company.

Aerocool v12xt fan controller

john e., Newegg
6 January 2014
  • Summary: don't buy this controller, it not worth half what their charging.gonna pull it out of my case , hook up a psu and 4 fans 3 pin type and see if I can figure out what the heck this thing needs to make all 4 fans respond to rpm +/- adjustments , unlock and lock feature doesn't seem to be the problem it flashes in unlock but nothing happens except on 1 channel. truly regret buying this. my fault , nobody elses.
  • Pros: it didn't cost more than I already paid.
  • Cons: 1 out of 4 fans respond barely to rpm changes. all 4 fans are 3 pin type and lighted. instructions are the worst ,seen caveman wall paintings that made more sense!

Can't see it!

  • Summary: Unless you look at it from just the right angle you can see the display. I have it in a rack mount system and unless you are looking at a steep downward angle you see it at all. Any ambient light will kill the view as well. Very let down my it. I am currently looking for a new unit to replace it with.

heat sensors

Anonymous, Newegg
2 August 2013
  • Summary: Looks cool.Still works,for the most part.Honestly after having this for over a year now,i haven't used it much.After i noticed my heat sensors weren't working,I started using the temp sensor software for my mobo.I am now considering using that for a future build to monitor temps and getting a fan control with simple dials.
  • Pros: Screen still looks great.Fan controls work.All buttons and features work.
  • Cons: Heat sensor strips are dead and have been so for a good 6 months.trying to find replacements if possible.
