Well im not best pleased with this.

I was hopeing some something that could actually have my fans off then turn them on when my temps started getting higher..

But it seems to stick my fans on at 40% or 50% No matter the Top temp i set.

Shipping it back to the shop i think...

Few reasons why mate.

Its silver, I have a black case

Its cheap, SO will contain cheaper hardware.

And that site says nothing about its ability...

Plus it looks shocking lol

ANyone got any good ideas?

sometimes crap hardware turns out to be the best. You shouldnt judge a book by its cover, Silverstone are a pretty good brand anyway, it looks far from "shocking". I find this fan controller quite sexy actually.

Good luck hunting your fan controller.

While it doesn't allow control via Windows, Scythe's Kaze Server has thermostatic control that can be fully automatic, semi-automatic or manual.

In "Auto" mode the Kaze Server will ramp up the fan rapidly and tail off slowly. It'll get around ½°C below the user-adjustable temp threshold and idle at a fairly low speed for a minute or so before stopping. There is no fan-speed adjustment.

In "Semi" mode, you can preset the fan to idle (at a speed you choose between the fan's minimum and maximum), then spinup when the user-adjustable temp threshold is broken. It'll blast the fan for a minute or so and tail off just like in "Auto" mode, but instead of stopping, the fan will idle at your preset speed. I've found the "Semi" mode to be the most useful to me. Works a treat.

"Manual" mode: Turn the knobs 'til she's right.

The Kaze Server has 4 channels at 12wpc.

If Windows' control is a necessity, then something from Aquaero or T-Balancer is probably what you need.

I like the fact it turns my fans off aswell.
