This review is from: SilenX IXA-CCS Five Channel Cabinet Cooling System
Pros: Versatile - can use for many projects computer related or not. Easy to install. Front bezels that cover the fans can be spray painted to match what you install them in to help hide them if black doesn't work for you.
Cons: *did not purchase from newegg* I purchased this from a local retail store a couple years ago for my custom built cabinets above my desk that I use to house multiple computers. I wanted a nice large fan control system that I could mount inside the cabinets so that the front doors could be closed without the pc's over heating. Well the first controller (the part that all the fans plug in to) just died after 2 weeks. Luckily it was within the return policy for the store and I got a brand new box and had to reinstall all of the fans. This time it lasted 2 months before dieing again. Same problem, the control module seems to go out and not power the fans. I gave up and ripped the connectors off of the fans and plugged them directly into a molex connector. I cannot control the speed now, but at least if the pc is on the fans come on. Obviously I could use any fan to do this, but at least these came with nice looking bezels that could be painted to match your system.
I just want to mention I have ready literally thousands of reviews on newegg about various products over the years and I am always astounded by the amount of "DOA" or "broke after a week" reviews I see on products I have never had a problem with. I have been building PC's for 15+ years and have only personally had one DOA part in the hundred + builds. I have actually not really received DOA parts of any kind with probably a very few exceptions I cannot recal. This is the first computer related product in my life that I have had such a problem with. The worst part is I paid double what newegg is asking so I thought I was buying a quality product. The fans still work, the controller is garbage.
Other Thoughts: Where I purchased these they sold the main set with the fan controller then a second product came with just another pair of fans with fan covers. If you like the look of these fans and what the plastic bezels they come with just buy the fans by themselves and rig up your own controller. Once you cut off the connector at the end of the wire it is your normal black/red wire configuration that you can wire in to any fan connector for the power supply or other fan controller.
