Features    [ Edit | History ]

Precious aluminum design:
High-quality materials were used when producing the Kaze Master Ace. The front consists of brushed aluminum and accentuates the blue illuminated VFD display in an optimal way.


Fan control and temperature monitoring:
With the Kaze Master Ace, four fans can be controlled independently, and four temperatures (in either ° C or °F) can be monitored. An integrated acoustic alarm function (which can be deactivated by a jumper) warns the user from overheating and failure of a fan.

Wide range of fan controller:
The fan voltage can be independently controlled from 3.7 - 12 V, in addition, the fan can be switched off completely which allows the user to choose between high and ultra-cooling operation.

Pros
Does it job, great precision in temps (tested with a infrared laser ACdelco automotive thermometer)
Cons
None known !!
Summary
Really precise and the fan/temp alarm do it's job and it's really audible. Seems to get a little hot (however i control 5 fans out of it with a splitter for my 2 intake fans on the same channel)

Pros
This product is great and easy to set up
Cons
I wish it had 5 fan controls
Summary
Great product, looks good in the case and doesn't make fans create  a noise unlike some other brands that are for less money. Would buy it again.

- has 4 temp sensors and 4 fan controls. also has a speaker if one of the fans that is connected to it fails, it will alarm you and wake u upThis can be disabled by turning off the Fan. Also, Temp can be measured in C or F depending what you like.

Pros
-does what it does
-the LED is decent
Cons
-ugly cables
-hard to mount into tool less 5.25" bays
-included tape has very weak adhesive
Summary
Pretty much what you'd expect out of a fan controller.

The cables were ugly, if you've got a pair of dexterous hands; go sleeve them yourself. Otherwise, expect these (red, black , yellow) cables to clash with any interior of a case.

The included yellow tape was a PAIN to have it stick to any surface in my case. Granted most of these temperature probes aren't accurate, and doesn't really do the job of probing for temps, it still would be nice for them to actually stick without it falling off. I'm being picky here; you could probably have done the job with some tape of your own.

Another little thing is that the bay is hard to mount onto a tooless 5.25" bays since the tooless mechanism clip into a screw hole further into the bay; this fan controller utilizes the screw holes closest to the outside, and thus I had to remove a few things to reveal the holes.

Overall, a very nice controller with a few problems here and there, but fairly easy to fix. I get annoyed at little things, so sue me.

Ps. one of the temp probes failed after 2 days of use, they include 2 extra probes with the controller so again, it wasn't a problem.

- good comestic on the computer case
Cons

Pros
Build Quality
LCD Display
Sensitive Knobs
Cons
Wire Colours
Summary
Great fan controller, will be buying another for my secondary PC. It gives accurate measures of temperature and fan RPM, exactly what I wanted. It also matches the 650D scheme fairly well, but not perfect.

The wire colours are the only problem I find with it. They aren't a nice all black wires that can be hidden easily, instead they are yellow, red and black. It stands out in my case and I dislike that, but I can live with it.

Experience: 3 Years
Pros
-Simple design
-Nice looking LCD with decent viewing angles
-The pots are very smooth, no grinding or roughness
-12W per channel
-Able to turn a fan completely off (0 rpm)
-Much better quality than the likes of NZXT (a brushed aluminum faceplace rather than some cheap plastic bezel)
-Very well-priced
Cons
-Level of quality and craftsmanship in the electronics itself is not very good... I'd spend a little more and get a Lamptron unit instead
-Voltage based controller, not PWM based
-Does what it's expected to do, but nothing really eye-catching beyond that.
Summary
I've been using this for nearly 3 years without any major issues (though I never tried to stress the unit all that much).

Though I have to say that while Scythe makes some nice fans, their controllers are nowhere nearly as good. One look onto the PCB side and you will see that the caps used are actually not that great. Most of the mini headers on my unit are soldered on like a mess (though it still functions just fine).

I've also heard that some users had Scythe controllers blow up on them due to questionable design/manufacturing. But YMMV.

Pros
Soildly built, looks great in my haf 932
Cons
Some aspects of built quality were overlooked.
very hard to plug in the fans
Summary
Got this for my haf 932 black edition. It looks great and works great. Only issues I had with it was:

1. The nobs on the front were not set the same, so if all of them were in the off position they would all be pointing a different way. At first I thought it was a shame and thought it was really poorly built. But then i realized you can just pop off the buttons and set them, so no biggie!

2. The fan cables were very difficult to plug in because they are so close to the side. I had to use tweezers to get in there and plug them in correct.

Other than that it looks great, the tape for the temp probes should be black instead of an ugly yello so someone could put them in the case.

If anyone is interested in what it looks like in my case:

Pros
looks great
functions perfectly
Cons
non sleeved cords
hard to install in cases with a snap in drive system
Summary
the kaze master ace is one of best looking parts on my computer. It functions just as advertised and was pretty straight forward to install. The cables reqire alot of hiding because they arnt sleeved and are very bright in colour.
