AeroCool Easywatch = bad + return....... give me a fan controller!

Was i mislead and lured that this easy watch can CONTROL fan speeds? it lets you connect 3 fans and has 3 sensors, however all you have is a SET button to set temps up and down for an alarm and nowhere can you modify any fan speeds or functions

$34 down the drain.......i could have spend $5 more and got a 5.25 LEGIT controller?

i went for the 3.5 to have space on top of my xspc kit frown.gif

On the official product page you linked it specifically says "Automatic fan control ONLY" as a feature. They even allcaps-ed it. Clearly a lot of people have made the same mistake.

Send it back and get a Recon ;-)

its "automatic" feature is so fake and doesnt even work... it has an alarm that beeps if you set the temp at a certain level, its basically a $34 scam of a power connector for a fan frown.gif

maybe you can help me, as frozencpu is the stingiest place for returns. i had to threaten to cancell a $300 order to return a $20 bottle of mayhem dye which they said "there is no way for us to know if you used it or not since it is not sealed" and i replied to the guy, "so theres no way for me to know YOU didnt use it" which bothered him


However, i have 2 CM Blademasters, i want to get them setup on a fan ctonroller so i can manually and automatically adjust my radiator fans


my motherboard which i just recently bought to make my kit fit, a GB UD3H, it only reaches the top sys fan for 1 and the other reaches the side sys fan 2, however the diff ones on mobo have diff speeds, so now i have fan 1 running at a slower speed than fan 2

i have the option to get an extension and plug them into two sys fans that will work at the same speed, or get a real controller that accepts 4 pin connectors and put my blademasters to work!!!!

ANYONE HAVE any good recommendations for fan controllers?

Either a simple dial controller or a Bitfenix Recon combined with the Pheobetria open source software. It is great for small builds. It gives you proper manual and user defined automatic fan control with air and water temp sensors. No fiddling with front displays one fan at a time.
Other auto controllers don't give you proper control, you just set a temp where the fans will be bumped to 100% and stay there til the temp drops.

I should of looked at the 5.25's

the reason i didnt is because i only have 4 bays, the cdrom is at top and xspc is at bottom 2, only leaving room for 1 in between, in which i did not want to put something there incase i had to mess with the res


do you know if that bitfenix has plugs for 4pin and 3pin fans? i just want my blademasters running properly ^^!!!

Yes it does fit 4 pin fans

Edit: Although if you are using PWM fans you could always just run them from the motherboard with a fan splitter cable.

yeah but the diff sys fan slots on motherboard provide different V, its weird, and thats why im sad..

i dont want 1 fan running 1000 and another running 1400 off my radiator, id have to get a extension to put the 1 fan on another slot that does the same power ... and i still cant manage the speed good


i might just get a old school KNOB fan controller and ill know when to 25/50/75 it, i dont know about all these fancy touch screen ones, seems it would take too long to alter speeds if i dont get the right one


im sure none of them have a program all one touch ? would you know? you seem to know a bit about the fan controller so thank you for posting mate

i need more fan controller recommendations!!!! help me out
post #10 of 12
As I wrote in my first response, I'd recommend the Recon as well. Its a great unit.

If you want to go cheaper and get card reader function I can recommend this too (just put it in the wifes box, er... machine.)

Gives you 4 channel manual control. Not the fanciest thing in the world but really impressed me for the price.
