Vantec Nexus NXP-201 Fan Controller Review

MODTHEBOX.COM
27 May 2008
  • Conclusion: The NXP-201 is certainly a well-designed fan controller that should appeal to a large market. What makes this unit stand out from its competitors is a smart look that no other product comes close to matching. The backlit control knobs are clearly the centerpiece of this unit and for users who are focused on aesthetics, this product is a serious contender.
  • Pros: Easy installation, Great aesthetic appeal, Supports up to 18 W per channel, Unique backlit knobs, Fits cases with bezel-mounted doors, Cable extensions provided
  • Cons: Only drops voltage to 7 volts, Slight buzzing noise at lowest voltage setting, No functional use of lighting, Fan header orientation may prove awkward during installation

  • Summary: Vantec have done it again by bringing a product out that was once only available to advanced case modders with a penchant for soldering and electronics. A fan controller is one of those simple ideas that comes under the category of "I should have thought of that and become rich off it". If you have a noisy PC, and who doesn't nowadays, this is a great solution for those times you need a little peace and quiet.
  • Pros: Looks luvverly, Four channels for four fan control, 12v all the way down to 7v Tames even the loudest fans (Cough Tornados Cough), Comes in two colors, Wires etc. included, Superb price
  • Cons: Not enough four pin adapters for my setup, Could come in more than two colors

  • Excerpt: The Nexus Fan Controller is available in 2 different colours. Silver or Black depending on what colour suits your case best. I shall be reviewing the silver model and therefore can't comment on the appearance of the black model, although they both operate the same.
