Vantec has listened to the many complaints about loud fans. In an attempt to fix this issue, they have designed the Vantec Nexus Fan Controller. It controls up to four fans into and it fits in a 5.25” drive bay. The Nexus comes in colors of black and silver, and both have snazzy blue LED’s. This fan controller supports up to 18 watts per channel and also claims to be able to handle high power Vantec Tornado fans. It looks great and can handle the loudest and meanest fans!
The Sunbeam has the abilities of supporting up to 20 watts each channel! That is enough to handle any power hungry fan. The unit when operating allows you to turn fans on or off. Turning it on produces a click such as car stereos that turn on by turning the volume up. While doing this, the LED’s on this unit will amaze you. There are 4 LED’s for each channel and are red when on low speed. Turning the dial up past half speed will transit into a super bright blue LED. I assure you, these are so bright, and they will light up a part of your room. You will see what I mean later on.

The Matrix Orbital is nothing new to modders; in fact it's a very popular unit indeed. It offers some nice enhancements, including all sorts of software features, and is programmable to do most anything you'd like it to. We're looking at Matrix Orbital's latest. The new model, MX212, uses a USB connection to communicate with the computer and its software. It requires only the USB power link, and is quite simple to operate . . . Most of the software we tested seemed to work very well with Motherboard Monitor 5.1, and even with the latest version, 5.2. However, we did find LCDC to be the most configurable, allowing us to grab and change code enabling display a wide range of information. The data we chose were CPU temperature, CPU usage in percent and graph, physical memory available, and email. We wanted each screen to provide full information using the supplied software, LCDC, including numeric percentages and, in some cases, bar graphs. The software allows setting of different screens to rotate. In total, we ran four screens. We could also display the ipKonfig.com headlines, yet another great feature. Below are few of the screens we captured for you
