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 ...

Quit in puff of smoke.

DOUGLAS J., Newegg
9 September 2015
  • Summary: Gigabyte GAZ97X-UD5H-BK Mainboard Intel Core i7-4790K Devil’s Canyon EVGA 750 W G2 ps 16 gigs G skill memory Corsair water cooling H105 EVGA Kingpin Nvidia GTX 980 Enthoo Luxe Case
  • Pros: Nice looking,( Before smoke)
  • Cons: Not the best quality control. Worked for two days , then burning smell and blank screen. Nothing wrong with system fans. I contacted NZXT directly because I thought they might like to know. Well they e-mailed me " RMA Rejected" and suggested that I send it back to Newegg.! I don't see how this is...

after 6 months she melted

Anonymous, Newegg
24 July 2015
  • Summary: While fire is generally really fun I don't enjoy it inside my computer. Don't buy
  • Pros: Really neat...
  • Cons: After 6 months I started smelling burning plastic, (luckily my rig is set up with a power kill switch in reach) so I cut power. After disassembling the rig I see the cables running from the unit to the fans has gotten so hot the wires have melted through their rubber housings.

Do not buy

Justin I., Newegg
19 January 2015
  • Summary: I contacted support about the one that caught on fire... they didn't really seem surprised, or particularly apologetic that they could have destroyed my computer and possibly my home. They offered to replace it, or refund credit... but I mean comon? after one caught on fire...
  • Pros: Looks nice, pretty easy to use and install. Does what its intended to do.
  • Cons: I bought two of these about 18 months ago, and now both are broken. The first caught fire about 6 months after I bought them. I was lucky I was home, otherwise it would have destroyed my fiance's PC... and also possibly my apartment. Despite that I continued to use the 2nd one until recently, abo...

Piece of garbage: Noisy pulsating fans

Anonymous, Newegg
29 November 2014
  • Summary: Really tried very hard to keep this Fan controller in my tower because of the eexcellent looks and functionality and because of the great price I got it for (15 bucks on aybay) mounted it and unmounted it 3 times, and every time I got fed up with fan rattling even at their lowest speeds.
  • Pros: -Looks -Controls -price -installation
  • Cons: - This controller makes fans run much noisier even for the lower speeds, with fans with leds you could easily see fan revolutions changings with pulsations of leds and fan rotation: that is not as much annoying as the noise level for the lowest speeds, compared against a regular knob like fan con...

Disappointed, But Not Giving Up

Eric D., Newegg
10 August 2014
  • Summary: My PC case and components are already safely cool, but I didn't have any ability to slow my case fans down and reduce noise. I bought this with the sole purpose of running the fans in manual mode and slowing them down thereby reducing noise.
  • Pros: I didn't really want a touch screen interface, but was pleasantly surprised. It is very responsive with the lightest touches. The interface is very straightforward and easy to understand. It's a little too cartoonish for me, but it's still a sensible layout.
  • Cons: Fan controller outputs four (4) and five (5) were dead on arrival. At least the other three functioned normally giving me a chance to see how the unit's operation worked.
