This review is from: Sunbeam RHK-EX-BA Rheobus-Extreme Fan Controller Panel
Pros: Nicely built, easy to install, easy to control fans.
I have 3 Delta fans, the AFB1212GHE-CF0 and these things just scream at max rpm. The amperage is what I worry about cause at 2.45A(Max-3.24A) it's hard to find anything to control these things. I have to admit the Sunbeam RHK-EX-BA does the job and with no problems at start up (that's where I usually get problems cause of the amps to start the fans). I've had the Delta's now for about a year and couldn't use them. The other fan controllers just didn't have enough umph to start the fans at start up but with this Sunbeam, I've set them and they start right up. I know about the toggles but I wanted the rheostat cause with the toggles you only have low, off and high but at least with the rheostat you can set them where you want them and forget them.
Cons: Could use a little more length in the cables but not enough to take an egg off.
Other Thoughts: I've been using this for about 3 weeks and had no problems at all, I just hope it stays that way, getting tired of trying to find something to drive these Deltas without having to revert to a toggle controller.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Built solid, easy to install, had the 2.0 for two years with no problems whatsoever and the 3.0 are fast to. Oh, and I had all the screws to.
Cons: None and don't expect any.
Other Thoughts: I've had the Rosewill 2.0 (RX-358 V2) since 2/25/09 and they have worked flawlessly, not one problem at all. So needless to say when Rosewill came out with the 3.0 I just had to get two of these. They have been on since I've gotten them, about a week now, and so far not one problem. I took my 2 drives, which were internal and put them in the 3.0 enclosure, 500gig each and even though I have USB 2.0 on my motherboard, these have worked without a hitch. Had to transfer files and again, not a problem. One thing you do have to get used to and that is both lights being on. I'm used to the 2.0 and only one light being on. By the way, these lights are a little bit brighter than my modem lights so they don't bother me at all, I kinda like them myself. I figured that if I ever have to replace my motherboard and it has USB 3.0 which it probably will, I'm already there. I've bought quite a lot of things from Newegg and Rosewill and in all honesty, THEY BOTH ROCK.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Scythe Kaze Master Pro 5.25 Fan Controller
Pros: Nice to look at, pretty solid construction, easy to read, fanspeed works great. I can't say anything about the Temp sensors cause I haven't hooked them up yet, don't know if I'm going to.
Cons: The only problem I had was getting the controller into the drive bay, seemed just a little to big but I got it in with a few choice words and a hammer(only kidding), the hammer I mean the choice words were definetly used. Other than that it's working just fine.
Other Thoughts: I wanted something to control my fans and at the same time let me know what their running at. Bought 3 Scythe Ultra Kaze 120x38 case fans to go with the controller. Hooked right up wit no problem. Some say to hook up the cables first, then run them. Me, I run first then hook up, whatever turns your crank I guess.
I have to admit, even though i'd read where a few of these were DOA or parts of them were, I decided to go with it anyway. At the present time, I'm glad I did. I always read the reviews you guys put out there. It's a great tool and you can thank Newegg for that. NEWEGG ROCKS!.
