4 out of 5 eggs Nice addition 10/28/2008

This review is from: Scythe KM01-BK "KAZE MASTER" 5.25" Bay Fan Controller

Pros:

Controls 4 fans
Displays 4 temps
Soft color VFD display
The Colors on the VFD display aren't too bright, close, but still bearable to leave on at night. (I have a lian-li case and have to cover the power and HDD lights with my laptop case they're so bright)

Cons:

I have two Scythe Ultra KAZE fans connected to this, and if I turn one (or of course both) all the way up, the VFD glitches, and freezes. Only way that I've gotten it to come back is either restarting my computer or disconnecting and reconnecting the power to the controller. (Other two fans are Rosewill 80mm fans I added to my heatsinks)

Can't plug fans directly to controller, must use their adapters (but I needed that for an extension for 3 of my fans)

Knobs are a bit cheap, and come off easy, so I may just replace them.

Other Thoughts:

As long as you don't need to run Ultra KAZE fans at 100% (or don't mind resetting the controller when you do) this is an excellent controller for taming those beasts.

Looks great too.

Including 2 extra temp probes was genius insight by Scythe. I broke one trying to get it where I wanted it.
