4 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Easy to work, easy to set up (can't count the cable management), not a heavy power consumer

Cons: Can't use on some tool-less designs: anything that has a back pressure design (Corsair Carbide 540 Air) for their 5.25" drives won't be able to use this, as the metal sides are not long enough to reach where back pressure is created in order to lock

Reduces max rpms: i found an additional loss of about 2.5 on high rpm fans to 5% on low rpm fans (on top of the+/-5% the fan manufacturers were listing) when the controller was set to max. Plugging the fans direct into the mobo listed readouts that were in manufacturer specs.

Other Thoughts: Wish it came in different colors for the display

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed!

Pros: Works fine in controlling and display the fan speeds.

Cons: I purchased this controller in June of 08 for may old build. My only disappointment with it is it is impossible to see the readouts for the temp settings. It has nothing to do with the angle. They are just very dim as if there is no backlight like there is on the speed readouts. I don't think it is a defect just a poor design.

Other Thoughts: Except for the useless temp readouts this controller has worked fine for 4 years. Because of the importance of being able to see the temp readouts I would not purchase another one.

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome.

Pros: Straightforward monitoring, Clear display, Loud Alarm, Just simple knobs and immediate status.

Cons: Lots of wires, but how do you avoid that?

Other Thoughts: Works great. It's easy to see what you intend. The fan speeds are shown and updated every second along with every temperature sensor. If a fan stops but the controller is sending power to it an alarm goes off.

Make sure you have pwm fans with speed sensors.

3 out of 5 eggsIts okay, but its not the best.

Pros: Monitors temps and rpm for the fans, well built, led display works.

Cons: Difficult to install the plugs for the fans, small, took about an hour to put together, alarm keeps irritating me so I removed it, the tape to hold the temp modules are poor making it stick to the heat sink is difficult, but obviously placing it on my hdd was easy.

Other Thoughts: The fan is okay, but with the alarm and plugging in the fans were difficult and as I was fixing the cables they keep slipping out so it takes about 3 minutes to plug back in, but after setting everything together they were okay, will make an update on the fan controller.

5 out of 5 eggsGood product, GREAT customer service

Pros: * Blue display isn't TOO bright
* Two shades of blue make discerning the temperature and RPM readouts
* Metal bracket and thick front board means a solid mount
* Rotary dials have a very solid feel to them
* The lowest setting on the fan controller DOES set the fan to off and displays "OFF"
* Unit just *looks* nice. Reminds me of the readout from in-car climate controls. Very uncluttered and classy. Too many fan controllers look like something out of a stereo competition.

Cons: * Included tape for temperature sensor fell off within a week, but my case is not new--dust contributed, I'm sure.
* Doesn't quite seem to fit the opening on my case--it's a little small
* Removing requires pushing on the circuit board in the back on my case. There's no flex and no reason to thing it would break, but it makes me nervous

Other Thoughts: This is a good product (with a couple of flaws, none serious) backed up with great customer service. As shipped, one of the fan connectors was miswired (sense and +V were flipped). When I attempted to swap them myself, I broke the connector. I contacted Scythe expecting to pay shipping and maybe a small fee for a replacement cable. When I provided them my Newegg invoice, they sent me an ENTIRE second cable package (power, 4+ temp probes, 4 fan extension cables) at no charge.

I would definitely buy from Scythe again after this.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Plugged it in and it worked. Looks cool! Goes great with a blue theme. Came with extra sensor wires. This product went through a lot to get to me. Arrived in perfect condition. UPS Rocks!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Some report the nobs are flimsy. This is true. I do not think they will take much abuse. Works fine for me. Just what I needed, thanks Newegg!
