The display with a size of 8.5 x 4.8 cm lit in green digits and can be seen very clearly from all angles. In addition, the supplied temperature sensors can provide anywhere in the body will be placed and well lit on the Green display can be read from all angles.

But with "six" is not over: the high Ausgansleistung of 36 watts per channel is also more fans than Y-cable can be connected. There is always the output speed of the fan where the speedometer cable signal is applied.
Should times turn a fan is also ensured: It follows an unmistakable signal.

The front is held in classic black aluminum as well as the knobs, or also called a potentiometer. These fit wonderfully in the most popular body color. In a 5.25 "drive bay, the controller almost every famous tower design fits perfectly. Traditionally, the voltage regulation takes place here. "Off" and 5 - the complete 12V fan speed range is covered where these usually run. The entire power is supplied via a 4-pin Molex connector directly from the PSU. By 50cm long attached 3 Pin Extensions (also compatible PWM fan), the fan can be connected. Small adhesive pads are included so that here no restrictions on the placement must be taken into account for the temperature sensors in the package.

For more features, the memory card slots provide easy access are also placed in the front. The following types of memory cards are supported: CF, SD, Micro SD, MMC, MS, M2, and TF. These are connected via an internal USB 2.0 cable 60cm long. Even for sticks or external hard drives is a USB 3.0 port found in the lower right corner

This is a great fan controller, really good build quality. Screen displays everything you need to know and is very well made with a good viewing angle. Knobs for the control feel good quality.


Lack of an auto mode might be a deal breaker
