taking mine back!

Its a great looking product which is why I gave it two stars instead of one but as functionality goes its dreadful to use.

The software is awful and it only takes a quick google to see that most people don't even use bitfenix's software
Also I have two noctua fans that it just continuously cycles off and on with - also it tells me that me 1200rpm fans (tested and checked with my mobo) are only 800 so its clearly wrong there.
Bad experience unfortunately and I am going to be contacting Overclockers to return it as it just doesn't work :(

Fantastic Controller

Received this along with a new 200mm BitFenix Spectra Pro Blue LED and was very impressed.

Fitting it to my 600T was a bit of a chore as the screws provided didn't stop the unit from small vertical movement and putting the front of the case back on was a struggle also.

Easy to connect and loads of wires making cable management a bit of a task. Once installed the only issue I had was getting the fan speeds to sit at a low RPM, this was caused by the TMP sensors not being connected, but once connected, all fans running around 4/500RPM for silent operation.

Easy to use interface & using the Phoebetria instead of the web GUI as it was more simple.

Very impressed and loved the free Haribo!! Thanks OcUK!

for the price its cheaper than aerocool v12xt. and 5 fans also. i bought this and aerocool. they are great although i like the color on aerocool but i like 5 fan on this one. very simple and easy to install. nice response on the touch screen. nice service again to ocuk. what i like about this it is able to control my 5600 rpm memory fan to make it quite.

Nearly perfect

For the price this is great value. It looks much, much more expensive when in case and running.


Software doesn't like 2 NICs, uses local host to connect, which throws it.
Not good for splitting channels to more than one fan.

I love it, if you want a controller to just do what you tell it which I do it's great.

A great fan controller with a lot of features. You've got room for five fans and they include a couple of extenders, handy if you have a big case. You also get five temp sensors, as well as a couple spare. You also get some tape so you can attach them at various points on your system. They've glued the sensors onto the controller however so if you don't want to use them there's no easy to remove them. It's powered by a molex plug and plugs into the motherboard via a USB header. The screen is pretty good, quite responsive and you can turn it off when you're not using it. The only problem with it is that it doesn't have that wide of a viewing angle, but no big deal. There are two settings, auto (changes fan speed according to temperature) and manual. Being able to control fan speed and monitor temps through your browser is quite a cool feature (you can even do it on your smartphone) plus the software allows you to create up to three profiles. All-in-all, a very cool little con!

Top Notch Controller

Purchased this fan controller because I am a big fan of BitFenix and I needed a new one because my old one had dodgy molex plugs (NZXT MIX)

First of all this thing is very sleek and minimalist. It has a nice soft feel to it and doesn't feel plasticky. It has a bright display that can be turned off if need be and the screen is very responsive.

It has 5 fan cables, USB cable to connect to the mobo, molex plug with pass through and 5 temo sensors.

Also include some spare temps sensors, fan extensions and adhesive pads.

I have it running 3x Fractal Design Silent Series fans and 2x Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15s all running at 800rpm for general use and max fr gaming etc.

Haven't tried the software yet so I'll update when I do.

I would have liked it though if the cables were sleeved like the Alchemy cables but that would increase the cost by quite a bit I'd imagine.

Overall it is far superior to my previous controller and so far it is coping perfectly so I'm super chuffed with it.
