Works Really well.

  • Summary: ive used other fan controllers but this one is one of the best i used. despite the cons it can be a very nice controller for any case that it is put in.
  • Pros: Nice Simple Design Easy to read at a glance Has date and time
  • Cons: Beeps about once every two days and speeds up the fans for no reason and the reset button is in a odd place and i hit it every once and a while and can be a bit annoying.

Looks Great!

  • Summary: This is a sweet looking fan controller that really helps give your build that extra "WOW" factor! Only a couple minor gripes. Once and awhile the unit will beep for no reason and sometimes the clock resets. As for controlling fan speeds, this unit works very well and can be programmed easily.

Looks great & works great

Terrence M., Newegg

  • Summary: My Self I usually Keep it on Auto most of the time but when im stressing out my whole system to the max like OC stress test or benchmarking i set fans to manual and works great stays at max unlike someone elses review maybe another needs to RMA I see some saying about beeping cant be disabled thats not true at all they either have a broken unit and need to RMA it or they just dont know how. Someone also said it has a bad viewing angle...
  • Pros: Looks very nice Extra Temp Sensors(Incase some die or w/e) Great Final touch to a killer gaming system Works well unlike some other review time/date stay after reboots/shutdowns, can set to any RPM increase/decrease 100RPM at a time limited by the fan its self some of my fans can go high some set lower but thats fine some i want to be able to go fast and other like hard drive fans dont need to go fast
  • Cons: Tape for Temp Sensors isnt good at all so buy or use some other tape to apply them The 4 Pin Molex Power Pass Thru is cheap Pins move around making it hard to all line up to connect it. Tho 95% of Pass Thrus from any company ive gotten uses these cheap pass thrus not really that big of an issue only minorly annoying

Works pretty well

Brooke P., Newegg
24 January 2014
  • Pros: It works how it is suppose to.
  • Cons: It will beep sometimes when you restart your computer, it also randomly beeps for no reason and yes i have put in the battery that came with the fan controller it's just bad programming on their end. The cords are also very stiff and the clips for the controller plugins are very stiff too so it is extremely hard to take the fans off the fan controller. The thermal tape just like anyone else'es review on this in not very sticky and can pose as a problem.

User Review

Theodore P., Newegg

  • Summary: I haven't had a chance to put a heat gauge inside my pc to see if the temp monitors are reading accurately. Some people say that the temps are about 10 degree's off.
  • Pros: So far everything is up and running good. The clock seems to be keeping good time on screen and I haven't heard the annoying beep sound that is normally associated with this fan controller.
  • Cons: The display looks great but you have to look at it straight on. If you look at it from an angle, you can still read it, but the spinning fan blades features are faded. But still that isn't really that important.

Great addition to my computer

JG McClung, Amazon
13 September 2013
  • Summary: I have several high-temp components in my case so I wanted to be able to monitor the heat at specific points in the case. This unit lets you mount 5 separate sensors anywhere in the case. My points were CPU cooling tower, CPU base, video card, memory and the drive bays. All points are annotated on the front and you can set either Fahrenheit or Centigrade. The one issue I had is that the clock tends to run very fast, gaining about 2 to 3 minutes per day.

Stylish and functional

Robert W., Newegg
31 August 2013
  • Summary: I don't know why everyone is giving this such a bad review. Mine came in the mail fully intact and functional.
  • Pros: It performs as advertised and it does it prety well. I like the aluminum on the front and I've had a bunch of people say, "What does that do? It looks cool." It does indeed add a touch of style to the front of the case.
  • Cons: I'm taking an egg away because I would have liked to see the main power plug for this switch from using the ancient molex to a more modern sata power connection. The side of my case is already bundled with a lot of wires but having to pull out another molex just to get to this thing just made it worse.

Not bad but it has its issues

Paul W., Newegg
9 August 2013
  • Summary: There are a few people saying that it beeps a lot even with the temp alarm off. If you connect it to a larger fan it will beep because it cant control the fan. Just plug the bigger fans into the MOBO and the beeping will decrease.
  • Pros: -Looks awesome in my computer -Bright Display -AUTO control mode is pretty sufficient for my needs
  • Cons: -Temp alarm will go off even if it is set to "Off" every so often (thinking about just removing the speaker and rewiring it to an LED or something like that) -The clock does slow down -Doesn't support fans bigger than 140mm so my 200mm fan will cause it to alarm a lot. -Odd angle of sight

Great controller, works best for faster fans.

Christopher K., Newegg

  • Summary: Overall, this is a good product. It controls my 1,100 RPM fan just fine, so if you have high speed fans I definitely recommend this device.
  • Pros: 1. Easy to read display. For me, it has a fairly wide viewing angle, probably about 90 degrees or so, not sure why other people are having problems seeing it. 2. Easy to configure 3. Solid construction. The metal frame doesn't bend easily
  • Cons: 1. It doesn't handle fans with a max RPM of less than 1,000 very well. When left on auto, it powers the fans down, tripping the alarm. On manual, they run at max speed and cannot be adjusted. Not too much of an issue since a 600 RPM fan doesn't create much noise, but you also can't turn it off if you wanted to without setting off that alarm. 2. You can turn off the temperature alarm, but not the "fan is off". It'd be nice to be able to cut them both off and merely hav...
