Ebug, super biiz

  • Summary: The Good: Looks nice on my twelve hundred. Fan control is good. The power watt indicator is a nice addition. At least I know my 850W PSU is just right for my sli gtx 260. FYI, the power tops 430W only. So I can go 3SLI =)

Not as bad as I first thought

  • Summary: I wouldn't give this controller a bad review just because I got one that broke down as one reviewer did. That's what warranty is for. After using this in my 2nd PC for about nine months, I find it's better than I gave it credit for in my first review and had to correct myself.
  • Pros: Displays all temps and fan speeds simultaneously. Four pin PWM channel can control as many PWM fans as you want so long as you get a splitter that supplies power from the PSU (great for H80/H100 coolers if you replace their fans with PWM). Excellent viewing angle. The power usage display is a lot...
  • Cons: Unusual fan speed display. Short sensor cables. Poor thermal tape (scotch brand magic tape works better) but this is common on fan controllers. No auto mode, just manual control. Old fashioned control system (push wheel once for each fan, then turn to control that fan).

Not bad but not worth the price.

  • Summary: If I had of known this controller is not programmable I would not have purchased it. Unfortunately I had to modify the length of the sensor wires so I can no longer return it. You must manually control the fans individually with the knob.
  • Pros: Looks cool, has a power usage display that works. Display background changes colour depending on the viewing angle.
  • Cons: Not programmable (unheard of for expensive fan controllers), fourth fan must be 4 wire and their connector only has four wires on one end (Doh!). Wires for temperature sensors are too short (this is not going into a baby computer), not deep enough to properly clip into a tool-less bay (had to use...

Junk

  • Pros: Works for a month well.
  • Cons: Started to display garbage (a bunch of '|' characters) when computer was on for longer periods, and now it displays garbage all the time.

Slick Controller

  • Summary: Sure I could have just used the BIOS fan controls or software like Speedfan. But a controller can provide more immediate and accurate adjustments which can be beneficial for overclockers. Additionally a controller such as the MFC3 adds some bling to a nice case.
  • Pros: -Great looks , -Nice display , -Easy control , -Total Power monitor , -Long cables
  • Cons: -Fragile connector wiring , -Weak thermal tape (& only 4 pieces) , -Somewhat loose fit for tool-less 5.25" bays , -Vague instructions , -Pricey

  • Conclusion: Качественная и полезная в хозяйстве железяка.
  • Pros: Достоинства:, Отличный внешний вид, более-менее плавное регулирование оборотов (шаг - 60), измеритель потребляемой мощности.
  • Cons: Недостатки:, Ммм... Недостатков пока не обнаружено, есть кое-какие придирки: хотелось бы, чтобы отвод на датчик оборотов в мать был от pwm-вентилятора (который неплохо бы сделать первым, а не 4м на экране), а не от обычного. Ну и время удержания нажатой кнопки для переключения в режим регулировки...
