Aerocool Coolwatch vs Lamtron Fc6

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok i just got my Lamptron Fc6 since that was the only fan controller on the marked with Red display for my HAF-X rig running red led fans

But then i see this Jawdropping fan controller
being that i love Red display i realy felt in love with the look:



Clock, Card reader, futuristic etc..

I go to aerocool website check specs:
Software controlled LCD functions
Large LCD display - fits 2 x 5.25" bays
Futuristic panel and graphic design
20 in 1 card reader
USB 2.0 / Line in / Mic
3 LCD backlight colors - red / blue / purple / off
Alarm warning on overheating and when abnormalies occurred
Monitors and controls 4 sets of temperatures and 4 sets of fan speeds
Sound sensitive display
Auto and manual settings for auto detect or user's personal settings
Status window showing temperatures, fan speeds and system information

So far look good

Then i Call Aerocool while drooling at the picture

First they tell me is product is discontinued ....... Oh... UH good start

Then There is no suport for vista or Windows 7
but can be run in compatibility mode
I ask aerocool if they can update the driver.... Nop they wont product too old
Oh nice thats very nice to their custumbers
Now how old is this product realy are we talking like 6 or 7 years or just 3?
most manufactures do upgrade the drivers on new windows
well Aerocool wont

If that was not enough they tell me it has only 6W per channel
is that true?
i cant find that in the specs anywhere?

Since i be running HAF-X with 6 led fans and 1 processor fan; spinq VT
i probaly have 2 channels share channel

But if it has 6W then is useless for me
however it look so cool i was looking at a Red display reason i got the lamptron Fc6 now sitting at my desk

Whats more it not just require 3 pin head but 3 pin cable to conect
not sure if the Coolermaster Megaflow is a 3 pin cable or just 3 pin conexion?
can anyone confirm?

Such a pity that fan looked so futuristic in my opinion
but is only controlled by software and if software is buggy in compatibiliy mode in windows 7 i will run into problems....

Now why could Aerocool not upgrade this thing
it has red, purple and blue colors probaly colors can be change by software

Anyway my questions here is

1. How many W per channel do Aerocool coolwatch have is realy as low as 6?
2. is it compatible with coolermaster megaflow fans since coolwatch need 3 pin cable not just the 3 pin head
3. Is Aerocool coolwatch better than Lamptron Fc6 (specialy in design)?

4. I guess there is nothing similar in red to Aerocool coolwatch today?
so i should just stick with the lamptron Fc6?
