For the production of this product, only noble materials have been used. The brushed aluminum front accentuates the blue illuminated VFD display in an optimal way. By the material of the front panel, the Kaze Master Ace fits in every high-quality aluminum case perfectly.
Hardware enthusiasts have the choice: The Kaze Master Ace comes in two versions, one for the 5.25 "and one for 3.5" bay. The larger version allows the monitoring of four temperature sensors while controlling four fans, the smaller version offers perfect control of two fans and two temperature sensors.
The Kaze Master Ace has acoustic and visual security features, which alerts the user on fan failure or too high temperatures. With one of the temperature sensors exceeds the value of 75 ° C (165 F) or a failure of the temperature sensors occurs, there is an acoustic warning issued. Additionally, the VFD display notifies the user by a blinking of the affected value. Using a jumper on the back of the Kaze Master Ace, the audible warning can be disabled completely.
