Pros: It does its job.
It isn't extremely expensive.
Other Thoughts: If you can't get your motherboard to boot with the RAM speed set high, you can always try tightening the timings, so you can even more of an advantage than otherwise.
If you have issues with this RAM, particularly at higher speeds or lower timings, please be sure you have the voltage set to 1.65 volts. You could try scaling it down a bit from there if you like, just be sure you're testing all this.
Given these factors, you can't really go wrong with this stuff.
This review is from: Sunbeam RHK-EX-BA Rheobus-Extreme Fan Controller Panel
Pros: It lets you control your fans.
It looks nice while doing so.
It comes with a nice amount of cables.
Cons: It didn't set itself up, make breakfast, or come with a free GTX Titan.
Other Thoughts: Having blue-lit dials, it looks nice with the XION XON-560_BK case. Also, the dials are removable.
You may get the impression from the pictures that this product is not built well. I do not think there are really any glaring quality issues with the build quality, the unit seems sturdy enough.
The cable selection is nice. As pictured, they have two standard 4-pin "IDE" Molex fan cables, two standard 3-pin fan connector cables with tachometer pass-through, and, finally, two of the same thing without tachometer pass-through. You are also able to hook fans directly to the controller, but you're unlikely to want this at all unless you have a fan with a truly long cable.
Additionally, as pictured, the cables for 3-pin fans has a plastic edge around them. If you wish to use a 4-pin PWM fan on this controller (essentially using it as a standard 3-pin fan), you'll have to cut the offending plastic first. You could plug it directly into the controller as well, if you have the slack, but be careful that you align the pins right.
The LEDs are very bright, know this before you buy. If this doesn't worry you, you should definitely buy it. Happy fan controlling!
This review is from: NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller w/ Five 30 watts Channels
Pros: It's a fan controller that controls fans while looking very nice. It also has good build quality.
Cons: It makes some Cooler Master fans squeak!? Geez! So much for reducing noise. It also seems the fans vibrate from it as well!
Other Thoughts: Looks good on a XION XON-560 Black...but sure doesn't sound good. It's going back.
I'm having the same problem a few other reviewers like Anon here have mentioned. Web research seems to say that others have had the same problem with other NZXT fan controllers. I highly recommend avoiding them for something better, else you may be taking a gamble and ending up like I did.
It's a great controller with one huge gaping flaw...or two flaws if you don't like the LED. Additionally, it seemed the LED on mine wasn't positioned behind the NZXT logo.
If it didn't cause the fans to emit the strange sound and vibration, I would definitely recommend this fan controller.
