Are you looking for bling factor more than functionality?

Well, the Sentry LXE is a wireless controller. The controls don't actually get mounted to the computer, they can be placed anywhere.

If you wind of want it to fit in with your case's design, I'd say you should get the first, second, fourth, or last controller. The others don't really look like they belong on your case.

I can vouch for the Kaze Master. I have the all black smooth faced one. The warning beep when a fan doesn't start is pretty loud though. Makes me jump every time. At least you know when a fan isn't getting enough power...

I chose it because it has the cleanest look in my opinion. I like a sleek, minimalist style, not blingy and flashy like that dual bay touch screen one. It's a freaking fan controller, not the helm of the USS enterprise...

Hi. I like a bit of a gadget bling factor... Sentry LXE is on my list then.
I actully want 2 fan controllers because Iam going to put 10 fans in my case. Do you think I could get 10 fans in the Lancool Dragon-Lord PC-K62 black case? I'm still deciding whether to go for a 690 II advanced or a PC-K62... I know that the 690 II fits 10 fans but what about the PC-K62?

What would you pick out of the Aerocool V12XT - http://www.aerocool.us/peripheral/v12xt.htm

or

Aerocool Touch 2000 - http://www.aerocool.us/peripheral/touch2000.htm

I love the look of the Kaze Master! Its got a sexy sleek finish to it!
It looks the same as the lamptron FC6. lol I love bling and flashy!! Some people think its tacky but I think it looks smart. I wouldn't mind having a few fan controllers in my case though! Kaze Master is def on my list to! cheers.gif

Also does anyone know the differents between the Lamptron FC6 and the Lamptron FC5V2??
Are they both the same? but the Lamptron FC5v is Power Output Up to 30w per Channel and the Lamptron FC6 is Power Output Up to 20w per Channel. Is that the only differents??

They both look the same as the Scythe KAZE MASTER''

Whats the Cons and the Pros

Not exactly. You can get the Maze Master with or without the aluminum faceplate. Mine is just a totally smooth glossy face.

I have this one
