Fan controller

Has anyone tried the linked above controller before? With me getting a TX-10 and in some respects following the old adjudge bigger is better I kind of like the look of this one. Also because I tend to keep my computers at the end of my bed so i can be laying down or propped up to play on the system comfortably. So this tends to leave me at at least 6'3" distance from screens and displays. And the magnified temps / fan speeds would be a bonus to me in that regard. While I know no one has the TX-10 I'd imagine it would be similar in regards to other case labs designs If anyone has it to test or has tested. Would anyone know if this would fit with it taking so many slots and if its even worth giving a chance to? Especially considering that most fan controllers I've ever had or really read reviews of, tend to get bad marks. Not all of course but nearly all the touch, Pop-out panel display, or other digital ones at least. So I'm reaching out to see if anyone may have experience with it. Thank you anyone and everyone in advance for any time spent or responses given.

I am using a Gatewatch 1 since 3 years now. Have no problems at all. Monitors temps, controls fans like a charm.
Maybe the backlight of the LCD is a bit too bright for a bedroom, but thats your decision.

The one I'm looking at has a dimmer control so that shouldn't be an issue as I'm sure with slight modification i could just disable it and create a switch to turn it on an off. I'm more concerned if it will fit in the case. do you have yours in a case labs case?
If it does end up being too bright I could also just put it in a lower bay. Thank you for the info I may end up giving it a chance.

I have mine in a stacker So the space is not really a problem. But its not deep. Some 4-5cm-s? So if you have the 2x5.25 slots, it has to fit.
