3 out of 5 eggs Only for if you have your PC directly facing you at face level 03/06/2010

This review is from: Scythe KS01-BK "KAZE SERVER" Advanced Fan Controller


Looks beautiful with my black case

Readings are in RPM for more accuracy instead of percents *cough*SentryII*cough*

Knobs and buttons feel solid quality when turning or pressing down.

Implemented button to turn LCD screen backlight off if you want to goto sleep although...

although you can easily goto sleep with the backlight on as well since its nowhere near annoyingly bright because the backlight background is black and only the numbers are highlighted white... this is great and gives it a much more classy and professional look instead of those toy-like displays that give you personal raver light shows in the dark.

2 extra temp sensors included


Main con: The display is illegible, cannot be read unless you are DIRECTLY facing it. As in if you're like me and have your computer on the floor at your side, you won't be able to read any of it from your seat and they'll just appear as an army of 0's. Terrible viewing angles on this lcd.

Also, it might not fit snug if you have tool-less bays as this controller's side panels are too thick to slide into my CM 690 II's bay's ledges. You can get it to work though with some fiddling.

The alarm beeping sound is obnoxiously loud and annoying... luckily this can be disabled.

The supplied tape is garbage as other reviewers have already mentioned.

Instruction manual is cluttered, chaotic, and shallow... however, you should be able to set it all up without any instructions easily as everything is pretty self explanatory just by looking at them.

Other Thoughts:

Would be perfect if the viewing angles weren't so awful... but its an LCD so what are you gonna do? The older models Scythe Kaze Master and Master Ace both use VFD instead of LCD which greatly improves the viewing angle, although neither the Master and Master Ace have the auto/semi-auto modes as this one does.

Hope this helped. Good luck on your decision.
