Summary: When I read the following "Color & Intensity Variable LEDs" I was not sure what colors they were.
Pros: At first at was sorta skeptical about this fan controller. Am glad I bought it!! it looks gorgeous!!! At low intensity the LEDs are bright blue and at mid-high the LEDs are red. Doesn't give my fans a buzzing noise at low rpms like others mentioned. the cable extensions for the fans are a plus.
Cons: The fan controller does not turn off the fans. This is not a con at all but that's my opinion. If you want your fans off then why install them in the first place?
Summary: When I was looking for a fan controller I wanted one with red LED's at max fan speed (fans I use are very quiet at max), these stated nowhere about being red. Well since I planned on a Black and red theme for my case (red LED's), I decided to just say heck with it and get it even if it had blue LED's. Low and behold half way mark turns blue LED's to red. Awesome.
Pros: Up to 6 controlled fans.
Cons: Some of the heat-sinks were a little crooked and bent
Summary: I also bought a new fan (high CFM/low noise) for my PSU, but it's so quiet, I run it max speed on the motherboard instead.
Pros: - Helped reduced my PC noise by 60%. I have it hooked up to all my fans, except the ultra silent ones that can easily run at max with no noise at all. (They are 14db with over 70cfm cold and silent.)
Summary: Used this switch for several months and has worked perferct. The switch is all black and fits in with my all black and red case. Would recommend this to my freinds! Another fine product from Tiger!!!
Summary: I wanted a controller for an intel board with 3 fan connectors to cut down on noise, my rear and cpu fan were too slow and the front too fast. This unit worked perfect and allowed me to monitor the speed via Everest. The only thing was I could have used 1 more of the board adapters, so I just made one myself.
Summary: Blue/Red changing LED for each of the six controllers, two of them allowing MB monitoring. It would be nice to have all six have the option of monitoring built into the package, but I understand you can buy more of the cables to allow monitoring if you really want that. It's not outlandish looking, and goes with a standard black decor.
Summary: LED's work as follows: LED's respond to Fan's RPM reading, not the output voltage. If fan stops spinning, or no fan is connected, LED shuts off. This is a great way to monitor fans. LED is blue below 25% of fans max RPM, and red above that.
Pros: LED status lights are easy to see from any angle, but are not bright like other controllers. See "Other Thoughts" for explanation of LEDs. Comes with 6 3-pin extension cables for fans. 2 of these cables are set up in a "Y" design so you can control fan speed with this controller, but RPM will still be reported to your mobo. Extension cable ends are enclosed to prevent shorting-out of disconnected fans.
Cons: Most CPU fans use a 4-pin connector. Not the large "molex" connector found on your HDD, but a fan-sized plug that has 4 pins instead of 3. This controller will work with 3-pin fans ONLY. Also, cannot use extension cables with 4-pin fans because of plastic surrounding. Purchase a 3-pin extension cable that does not have the covering to use as an adapter.
