  • Summary: So I ended up returning this because my case didn't have any 3.5 external bays and I didn't pay attention when ordering it that it wasn't 5.25, but I did plug it in after I opened it and it seemed to work fine.
  • Pros: -Worked fine, simple design
  • Cons: -Not all cases have 3.5 external bays

  • Summary: Shame to see it discontinued
  • Pros: I have been using this for over a year and it still works just as it did when new. It does exactly what I expected it to and it goes very well with the black finish of my case. The cables supplied were more than long enough and the fan controller doesn't take up a whole lot of space inside the ca...

Sparks fly & Smoke

John D., Newegg

  • Summary: Still waiting on Scythe to respond back to my email for warranty
  • Pros: Controls 12 fans & 2yr warranty
  • Cons: Work great for 1yr to date but went out with a puff of smoke & sparks flying, yesterday. Thankfully I was standing right there to shut down by pulling the plug .

Not Perfect but not Garbage

Austin T., Newegg
6 September 2012
  • Summary: 20$ is a little steep for my blood, I would like it alot better if it was like 10-15$
  • Pros: Easy to set up with very long cables Nice slick black design, matches my case nicely Small profile
  • Cons: The knobs' speed notch could be white so you could find out what its at w/o having to turn it all the way up or down. The power each fan gets is a little low for my taste, would like a little more power for the price. Power connectors feel cheap. No screws, but my case doesn't use screws, no biggie

Drake H., Newegg

  • Pros: Direct control of 4 fans nice metallic brushed design fits well in my HAF 922 case with 5.25" to 3.5" port easy (enough) install cheap
  • Cons: the threshold of control for each fan is low, can only adjust each fan about 1 - 1.5K RPMs i did a bad wiring job no mounting screws included poor mounting method

  • Summary: you might need some connectors to convert mulex into 3pin 4pin fans like on a CPU fan can connect to the extensions this controller comes with it fits int a df-85 very easily
  • Pros: i did not buy from newegg i bough from frozen pc. it works exactly what its meant to do. 8 channels is awesome. when you turn down fan speeds they get very quiet.
  • Cons: wires are ugly.

Worked great, for awhile...

Tyler S., Newegg
26 May 2012
  • Summary: Fan controller literally stops outputting power to fans sometime. Awesome. Don't rely on cooling a box that you only have remote access to with this sucker.
  • Pros: Works great when it works.
  • Cons: Annoying kiddie LEDs on the front. Circuitry overheats and stops outputting power to fans.
