    "This is a great addition to your custom built PC and a must have to control speeds and temps in the tower so that the motherboard and other important pieces do not overheat. Love the whole LCD screen too."

    "This is a set of fans for powerful PCs that heat up quickly and are in need of extra cooling. The mesh design is supposed to be stealthy, which does not make a lot of sense. You can adjust how many fans are running at any time, so as to moderate the temperatures of your PC."

Sure, there's some software that works to some degree but if you want complete control over your fans then PerryLee PC Computer Fan Controller is what you're looking for. A complete 5 1/2" LED control panel fits right in your ATX case."

    "The NZXT fan controller is perfect for managing the temperature of your electronics - not only does it have 5 individual probes with fan speed controllers, but it also allows for different operational modes (manual versus automatic). One of the best features is the easy-to-use interface with temperature alarms for notification if the temperature gets too high in that area."

    "My hands get very sweaty when playing games so I started looking for the best fan controllers. I bought the Kingwin Four Channel Turn Knob Multi-Fan Cooling Controller and what a mistake that was! The fans don't even come on half the time and the LED indicator doesn't even work. It was a total waste of money."

    "Wasn't really familiar with NZXT till I saw this Fan Controller and I have to say I am impressed with the design of the controller and the touchscreen is a very nice option much better from the 90s when everything was done by dial."

    "This fan controller is one of the more advanced ones on the market and needs a little more expertise than similar models, but this does allow for greater customization and control. I like the 4 temperature inputs along with the two internal USB headers, supporting modular customization of other Corsair products."
