Cons: Backlight faded to black in 6 months making the unit completely useless. A real ripoff at just under $50. Replaced it with an NZXT sentry which has the same functions plus a power switch for the backlight for almost half the price of this one
Cons: When I first got this on my new computer, the display was very bright, almost annoyingly so. My computer runs 24/7, and after only a few weeks the display was noticeably dimmer, and it has continued to fade. Now, at 10 months out, the display is so dim that it can barely be seen in our normal roo...
Summary: This would be an ideal fan controller but for the LED backlight issue and the compulsory temp sensor connections. After 6 months of use, one cannot read the panel by ambient light because the backlight illumination is too dim.
Pros: Attractive controller panel, settings easily modified, sufficiently bright out of the box, does what its supposed to do.
Cons: The LED brightness cannot be adjusted, and the control panel becomes unreadable within a few months as the LED backlight progressively dims. Even if you don't intend to use the device for temperature monitoring, you must attach the 4 temp leads or the alarms never cease.
Summary: I ended up taking it out because the Corsair 600T case it was mounted in has a built-in dial type fan controller. The temperature alarm function would have been useful if I could get a good reading on anything.
Pros: Looks cool; Fits neatly in a single drive bay; Construction appears solid -- no cheap plastic parts here; Works as a fan controller, so long as your fans use a 3-pin plug and not a 4-pin.
Cons: Doesn't remember fan settings between reboots; setting speeds for four individual chassis fans at 100 RPMs per button push gets tedious quickly; external thermometer leads don't give useful readings -- when my 580 GTX went from 45C to 80C, the controller read anywhere from 30C to 36C. Same for th...
Cons: Most case fans preinstalled by Antec and even most aftermarket 120mm or larger fans are two-wire variety with 4-pin molex connectors. You can't connect these fans to the unit without buying an adaptor, and even if you do, you can't read their RPM or control fan speed. Also it makes no sense to us...
Summary: Yes it does kinda sound like a microwave :o
Pros: Small and easy to use !!
Cons: Wish there was a better way to mount to the cpu to get a better reading . I have the cpu temp probe on the mb right beside it and it seems to say with in 3-5deg diff from the bios temp reading on my MSI 890FX-GD70
Summary: caution.. touch screen can be a bit fickle sometimes use fingertips not your whole finger or you can fight to push the correct button. but what can you expect with all the touch buttons jammed into a single bay slot.
Pros: 4 fan controller and 4 temperature sensors. plus a few extra sensors are included you need to replace a few while you own it. looks real clean cut and only takes up ONE bay. and is easy to understand as long as you have used one before or read the manual... def not a major science. can set up tem...
Cons: only took 1 egg off for this but the 5.25 brackets aren't secure enough on the motherboard panel side. if you use the touch screen on the right side it will push in a slight bit on that side. not super noticeable so im ok with it at the moment.. but will be mod fixing it at a later date
