Looks great
Cons tape for tabs isnt very sticky


I dont regret buying the product at all, but for me it's mostly asthetic. this is more of a "I like cool blue things on my computer" type thing. it does work well, i just dont see myself lowering the fan speeds often enough for it to be useful

Cable length was sufficient, LCD is not irritating in the dark, nothing to improve overall.
Cons I need a four pin fan connect for my Corsair CPU liquid cooling radiator-fan (amps?) I needed to use the motherboard connector, but I think it runs so slowly that the alarm would have sounded anyway.


Antec Nine Hundred: This temperature control unit verified temperatures, and enabled me to re-position case fans to all intake - except the big boy on top! Thanks.

- very elegant design
- lcd not too bright
- 2 spare temp probes provided
- voltage control AND off position
Cons - cable length could be longer, some other fan controllers provide longer temp probes, but this is only noticeable in large full tower cases
- the dials feel nice to turn but feel weak, they can be pushed in and out a little, if you were to hit them while transporting the case they would break
- started smoking after 5min
- lcd failed after 5min


I really want to be objective here but my experience with this unit was not successful.

After installation which was about 5min the unit lcd stopped working and it started to smoke. Now i know people will say that is a result of fans that are outside of the controllers specification, in particular the channel amperage. I connected 4 Gelid Solution Gamer fans 120 Green, rated by manufacturers specs at 0.22amps. The controller is rated at 1.00amp per channel, this is ample room for good performance.

I understand people have had success with this product and i'm glad for them. I wish i was fortunate to share the same luck, however this is not the case. I really like the styling and hoped it would work. Perhaps this is part of a bad batch Scythe released?

Works well
Clean, simple interface
Fan speed and temperature readings
4 fan extension cables included
Cons None


Needed a simple device to control about 3 fans and this unit works well enough. It's simple, easy to use, and not blindingly bright like most controllers.

Experience: 5 Days

looks great, works great
Cons blue and green LED's clash


if it's in stock, get the Kaze Master Ace, otherwise, this is an EXCELLENT item. Other then the LEDs clashing with one another, it looks great and performs better

Looks. It works.
Cons Knobs feel a little weak.


Does what it is supposed to. Knobs feel a little weak, but that isn't much of an issue for me since they are protected my my door anyways. I could see this being an issue for some people though.
Pricematched to $40 - great deal.

Nice Looks
Has RPM and Temperature detection
Cons Fluctuating RPM
RPM is actually Green, not blue
Power connector with the molex had its pins pushed out


I freaked out for a bit when I powered up the fan controller for the first time and it beeped. No fans were spinning as well. As i took a closer look, it was the molex pins that have been pushed out. The 3 pins for the connector to the fans or labeled as #6 in the diagram, has loose connections. Fans will lose power unless u push the pins in hard.

Experience: 2 Days


Clean and Nice interface.
Simple layout
Beep function can be disabled
Mini-temp sensor x 4
fan extension cable x 4
Cons Beep, when enabled, is LOUD


Nice digital display. The colour of the LEDs are friendly to the eyes.

Beep is loud as mentioned.

Makes cable management a challenge.

It fulfills its purpose nicely.

Good control, good looks, cools lcd
Cons a little hard to install the wires.


This unit is very good looking. It has 4 temp monitors and 4 fan controllers. It really helps keep my pc quiet when i need it to be. The black really goes well with my case. Overall a good unit.
