    Great fan controller. I wish it was a little more customizable though.

    Works fine, little bit of a waste of money looking back on my purchase. Nothing wrong with the item itself, just kind of pointless to have nowadays. Does what it needs to.

    Looks great, easy to install and use and the price is tough to beat. Easily handled the seven fans I hooked up to it (via fan splitters) and offers nice configuration options, including the ability to link channels and disable the screen's backlighting altogether. Very shallow part depth means it won't interfere with other parts like the roof-mounted 140mm fans in my case.

    No complaints. Just about all of the fans in my system are hooked up to this, and it works like a charm. The "beep" sound is really annoying, though.

    What an absolute pain the butt to get this thing installed in my case. It is "jerry-rigged" to all hell in there but, it's in. This should not be listed as "compatible" with the MasterCase Pro5." I like having the fan curve at my finger tips though. All in all a good product from NZXT, if you want this sort of thing, you would be hard pressed to find a better fan controller.

    Bought this because the motherboard only had 3 fan headers and i wanted to include 5 total on the case. Works great!

    The casing doesn't support enough fans so I went for this. Pretty good fan controller, easy interface to control each of the fans.

    No issues whatsoever. Absolutely amazing fan controller, and I completely recommend it to anyone with a compatible case. Touchscreen is easy to use, has a lot of features and connections, and overall looks really neat.

    I ended up picking this up for $15 brand new on Craigslist, and It's honestly my favorite part of the system. It's like having a CAM display in the system, but for more lower-end cases. It is able to keep my fans at silence during idle periods, and quiet enough during gaming that the system is easily cancelled out by my headphones. Includes real-time temperature sensing which is cool. My one gripe is that some of the digital readings are difficult to read at certain angles.
