ThermalTake ModX - world's first programmable fan

Posted on Monday, Feb 25 2008 @ 13:46 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Almost a year ago I reviewed the ThermalTake iFlash fan which featured a POV display, this LED fan projected the case temperature and some ThermalTake logos on the fan blades. While it was a pretty cool product most people were a bit disappointed by the lack of customizability.

One of the most wanted features for this fan was the capability to put your own text messages on the fan's blades. Fortunately ThermalTake has listened to comments from the community and next month at CeBIT the firm will show off the ModX fan.

The ModX is world's first programmable logo fan, just like the iFlash fan it will feature a POV display and temperature readout but this time you'll also be able to put your own words on the fan! Few details are available about the ModX fan but I suppose it uses a USB interface. The product ships with some software for Windows and supports four different pattern effects.

The ThermalTake ModX fan will be available in 80mm and 120mm versions. Pricing and availability is unknown.
