Equipment is great

Pros: The Fan Extension card is great and the seller was excellent, I would recommend this to anyone who has an Asus board and doesn't have enough cooling.

Cons: ASUS instructions suck, they mentioned confusing options that aren't necessarily like a 4 pin to 4 pin cable that's (not included) but they don't mention that it's not necessary because they supplied a 5 pin cable .

Other Thoughts: The installation of the card itself is problematic because you have to give up one of your drive bays, and screw the board to the side of the bay with all the wires attached because your not getting your hands in after the board is installed.

Works great with Asus motherboard

Pros: With Asus motherboard with EXT fan header it allows all 3 fans RPM's to be read.
Fans can be adjusted with Asus AI Suite 3

Cons: It really needs some type of either included, or aftermarket holder. The flimsy little right-angle brackets that mount to optical drive spacing just doesn't cut it.
I ended up using a piece of ABS plastic cut to size. I then used some packing foam and double-sided sticky tape. Using this, I then used studs (like to mount motherboard but made with fine threads) and mounted it to the side of the optic drive. This is much more protected than sitting right-angle to it. The plastic was to prevent any of the soldier joints from hitting metal. The foam was because the joints were long and sharp enough they could potentially poke through. Anyway, all is said and done it sits ~3/16" and right along side the drive.

Other Thoughts: A simple plastic bottom would make this much easier to use. I realize they were probably going for minimalist design so it could be hidden but it took me quite a while to come up with something that felt solid and safe from breakage or shorting.

Just what the doctor ordered!

Pros: - Size
- Manufacturer
- Price
Fast delivery

Cons: - There is no 4-pin PWM cable that comes with the card. Still works although I am probably missing out on some feature, using DC instead of PWM i do not think is a game breaker.
- mounting the card inside of a drive bay isn't a big deal, but makes it less accessible.

Other Thoughts: - Asus should pack these bad boys in all of their supported mobo's!

highly recommend this fan controller for ASUS MB

Pros: Being able to expand the bios capabilities of my ASUS MB and control the 3 fans by temp for the water cooling of the CPU. This works much better than manually controlling the fans.

Cons: No LED controller.

PWM not supported in Fan XPert 4

Pros: You can connect 3 more thermal sensors which are addressable in BIOS and Fan XPert.
The board is relatively small.

Cons: The PWM fans connected to the EXT headers do not show as PWM in Fan XPert 4.
You have to switch them to DC in the BIOS in order to control them.
Then the power on those is limited and in my case the min-rpm started from 1200 RPM which was loud.

Other Thoughts: ASUS support in America is terrible.
They never read the emails.
Always respond with.
"I am sorry. Install new BIOS. Reinstall software. Tune fans again."
After 10 emails exchanged, I got pointed to the tiny text.

"ASUS reserves the right to change the specification." - Robert.T.

I.e. they have the right to sell you <censored> and provide no support.

Fan control

Pros: Great little product. I was able to install it to the 5.25 drive bay that I was not using. Able to now control my 3 radiator fans to my custom GPU water cooled system.

Cons: No Molex wire connector included in package. I had to purchase an extended Molex to be able to reach the fan extension, but in all this was not a breaking point for the rating.

New Egg PLEASE Order More Of These

Pros: Many/most of Asus' X99-series of motherboards have the BIOS support and connections to work with them, not just the X99 Deluxe boards that came with them included. Being able to purchase them from a legit vendor along with the instructions, cables, and sensors they are supposed to come from Asus with is a huge plus -- *IF* you happened to look for them at the right time (when they are/were in stock). Being able to add multiple (3) BIOS-native temperature sensors and fan connections is a perfect complement to this enthusiast series of intel chipset.

Cons: They are hard to find. I read about these in 2015 but Asus had not (apparently) yet done their survey and subsequent production run of them to sell separately from bundling with the X99 Deluxe board (or whatever model(s) comes with them). I searched high and low among overclocker and enthusiast type forums and other haunts, and was able to find a fairly strong consensus that you couldn't get one unless you bought one of the mobos that came with them, or were willing to take a chance somewhere that sounds like the letter B in pig latin, which a number of people who did reported unsatisfyingly about. Additionally, there was NOT a solid word at the time that the module could even work with other Asus X99 boards (such as the X99-E WS I built 2 rigs with in summer 2015) or how to connect it.

Disappointed, I gave up and decided to look for another solution to add fan control and temperature sensing. The next best solution I could find was an expensive proposition I never jumped on -- the Aquaero 5 and 6 devices.

What I did not know, because I had stopped looking until recently, was that between August 2015 or so and early 2016, Asus finally "got it" thanks to the late 2015 survey that there are a LOT of Asus X99 motherboard owners that would like to buy these, especially since their mobo can function with it, and at some point decided to do a production run of them. But they obviously did not make enough of them. So I and I am sure many others would like to buy some missed out not only on the survey but also the stock of them.

I am subtracting an egg because of how hard they are to find. It is insulting enough that they were essentially vaporware mentioned in the manuals of X99 motherboards such as the flagship model I paid $500 apiece for, while given away with much less expensive boards. But I still can't find one even after Asus decided (finally) to produce them for sale separately..

Other Thoughts: New Egg -- PLEASE order more of these. You will have no trouble selling them. You'll have a buyer for 2 of them right here if I can just get a chance to buy them....

Defective, replaced by ASUS, new card works great

Pros: Connected additional case fans as advertised
ASUS warranty support slow but worth it

Cons: Sometimes spiky fan speeds reported by BIOS/AI Suite
Initial card was defective

Other Thoughts: The first card I got from Newegg would power the fans but the BIOS and AI Suite wouldn't read them at all, speed wise.
I sent the card to ASUS under warranty and received a replacement about a month later.
The new card works great, just as advertised, and the fans can be set up in AI Suite just like fans on the motherboard (Z170-A)
Occasionally, when monitoring the speeds, the reported fan speed spikes to twice it's actual value for one second. The fan itself doesn't change speed, just what the system sees. It doesn't seem to cause any functional issues though.
