excellent

Derrick A., Newegg

  • Summary: I would recommend this, I really like it, and makes it easy to control the case fans. Plug and play.
  • Pros: Better quality than I expected. Touch screen is responsive and real, not one of those imitation touch screens. has a manual mode, where you can set fan speed for each fan independently. Also, it has 5 temp sensors, 1 for each fan location. The automatic mode works well too. increases fan speeds a...
  • Cons: you cant change the automatic mode parameters. but it's works good as is. Other con, makes really loud beeps when you push buttons, but there is a button to turn the beeping off.

LCD works, but not the fan controller

Corey P., Newegg
8 March 2016
  • Pros: LCD panel looks futuristic
  • Cons: When I installed it, and turned the pc on for the first time with the part hooked up with fans, there was a pop like a resister going out as I start it up and smoke and the smell of hot glue and burning solder, this is the second one that they sent since the first one did the same thing to me, I ...

Solid Fan Controller

Tim M., Newegg
5 March 2016
  • Summary: Great product for a great price. Extra cables come in the box. Shipped fast.
  • Pros: It does its job well. It feels like a quality product, installs easy, does everything I need it to do.
  • Cons: Instructions could be a little more detailed on how all of the functions work, but a quick Google search turned up everything needed.

Very nice fan controller

Ian H., Newegg
27 February 2016
  • Summary: The display is bright and vibrant, not a huge deal for me since i keep the computer under a desk. However it might be a bit bright for some. There is an option to turn off the display, though I haven't tried it.
  • Pros: Easy to install, very clear display. Has connectors for 5 fans, 3-pin and 4-Pin (molex). The temp leads were pretty nice, and so far pretty accurate. I have everything set up to run on auto and it does a great job keeping things cool.
  • Cons: Non as of yet.

So cool!

Brytt B., Newegg
9 February 2016
  • Summary: My new case comes with controlled fans so I don't use this controller anymore BUT I do still use it to see the temperature in my case at various places. When I did use the controller, it was fantastic!! Lots of variations of speed and it's just a great extra to have in a build.
  • Pros: easy to use, very handy
  • Cons: none

Worked

David K., Newegg
27 December 2015
  • Summary: This build was sold on e bay so I hope the new owner likes the fan controller. He's new to gaming computers so he probably never tried to change the settings. Not sure where the disconnect is with NZXT's QC. The cases are great (in my experience), but this device didn't measure up.
  • Pros: Esthetically great looking addon for my NZXT Phantom 410 build. It looked great. I really liked the quality of the thermal sensors and the cable length was just right. First time purchasing a DIY digi fan controller.
  • Cons: 3 eggs due to it never let me change fan spans after I set all fans to 50%. It would power on and power on the fans but I could never configure anything on it after the initial settings. I think I got a bad one from the factory.

Works

Michael L., Newegg
24 November 2015
  • Summary: I would buy again unless I was looking for a very minimalist build.
  • Pros: Cheap. Does what it is supposed to do. My system doesn't run all that hot but the fans were running pretty good and making a heck of a racket. I switched to Noctura fans and this controller and now my wife's laptop is louder than my desktop even when I'm pushing it to max performance. No problems...
  • Cons: I would rather something LCD/touchscreen that was a little less flashy. Cables are an issue - but you should expect that, right? Instructions were limited (or none) but it's pretty obvious. I would like the LCD to go dim/blank when not in use.
