Summary: I purchased a $4,000 computer system and employed this unit to control my fans. The high temp alarm beeps incessantly!!! My PC is running very cool, but no matter what I try, I cannot turn off the alarm, and cannot use my PC. I e-mailed NZXT, and got (1) response back that was no help at all. The functions stopped working, I cannot control the fans, and it just keeps beeping - beep beep beep beep beep!!!
Summary: If you are looking for a tempreture controlling fan module this is not it. It does not automatically turn your fans on and off. It has 5 digital tempreture read outs "reads the tempreture in 5 areas of your system". When exactly does more than one system tempreture readout become necessary? Unless it is to turn on and off fans in that location. Anyway I had a digital Doc 5 controller "now unavailable" that controlled 7 fans by tempreture set points.
Summary: The unit I received would not run the fans and the temperature indications varied by 2-3 degrees C and jumped up and down randomly - even with the sensors all in the same spot. Using this is one of the worst things you can do to your computer. Fans keep your computer and everything in your computer case from burning up and forget about your warrentees. NZXT seems to have no quality controls at all. I have had similar problems with other NZXT products resently.
Summary: Well, since there were a bunch of problems with this according to many previous reviews, I was a bit skeptical buying this. But, in light of the terrible reviews, I decided I would go for it, and pray for the best. This is replacing a Scythe Kaze Master, which was running 2 (the 3rd and 4th channels broke, hence the replacement) Scythe Kaze Ultra 3000RPMs. That ran both of them at about ~2700RPMs maxed out.
Summary: I legitimately had to extinguish a small fire inside of my machine. Yesterday I installed the unit in my machine to find out that only after a day of use, the power cables were botched from the factory. Bottom line the unit looks great, however, it seems in this case that the factory this unit was manufactured in messed up when grounding all of the connections. I am going to see how the replacement works. Hopefully will not be having the same issue.
Summary: I've been a big fan of NZXT products since 2004, and have always felt their products are well made. This controller got great reviews in the beginning, but the complaints started to roll in around mid-2010. This was concern and hoped NZXT would have resolved their manufacturing issues, but that wasn't my experience. When the product arrived, the appearance was absolutely beautiful. This was the best looking bay fan controller on the market.
Summary: Every one pay attention, this is the very very poor product, mine die after two day of used! It don't have enough power to control all the fans. The LCD die quickly after 1 day then the fan controller.
Summary: I had this unit installed in my new computer, which I purchased from CyberPower. BIG mistake that I made, I didn't need to spend $70 for something that I thought looked cool. I thought I was going to have 5 fans hooked up, but I only had three connections to my 5 fans, what's worse is that this unit died on DAY 2 of having my new computer.
Please, for the sake of your PC, stay away from this!!!!!!

Summary: So, this item sure does look great in your PC. Very high tech looking. That's about all that it is...nice looking. Like other reviews, the high temp alarm will go off for no reason. It's annoying, but bearable. However, eventually this unit (and thus every fan connected to it) will stop working, flash the fan icons in some type of error signal....and your PC will keep running. The only thing that will shut down your PC is if your CPU overheats. In the mean time...
