I picked up a second of these fan controllers for another computer and ran into a problem where the first knob was shorting out the circuit board, but would run fine after applying some slight pressure upward. This is the first time I have ever run into a problem with a scythe product, and considering the design and build quality, I believe it is probably the exception rather than the rule.

Just placing this out there in case anyone else has run across a similar problem.

Also some zip ties, and spiral wire wrapping cleans up the installation very nicely.

I love scythe products. My RAM heatsinks look amazing.

Out of curiosity, got around to any pics? I have a P182 and have been considering one of these, but feared the wires would get messy, especially with temp sensors.

The wires do get pretty messy. They're rather long, unsleeved, and along with the temperature sensor can make for quite a rats nest. Nothing you can't solve with a zip-tie or two though.

There are 4 sensor wires, 4 3 pin fan connectors, and a the power connector from the PSU to worry about. I have mine tied up in a 1/4" spiral wire wrap to keep things clean. Also the wires are long enough that they can be hidden in almost any full atx case.

Is there any way you can control the cpu fan if it has a 4 pin connector on it. As the inputs for the controller are only 3 pin I believe?
