This fan controller does have an interesting feature – the PWM control function. However, this is insignificant to me, the reason that I actually like this fan controller is its simplicity, build quality and reliability. It look incredibly smart, and somewhat OEM in some PC cases (such as mine), this is a desirable item. Additionally, the ability to go right from 0.01v to 11.5v is useful, as it allows the perfect tweaking of fans, whilst also having the ability to support other items (whilst not recommended, it could potentially support cold-cathode lights etc.). Finally, the included cable-accessories will ensure that installation is easy, and with a bit of effort, tidy.
- Simplistic design
- 30W per channel
- Is cooled by its own heatsinks (should improve reliability and efficiency)
- Good build quality
- PWM function is great if your ambient temperature changes often
- None that I can think of. It really depends upon the retail price (if less than £30, I think it will be a bargain).
Reality Check: If you’re looking for a simplistic, reliable and stylish fan controller, that offers excellent voltage control and is stable then this is definitely my recommendation!
