Product information: Cobalt3's V Temperature Sensitive Fan Controller - Blue LEDsOverclockers UK is proud to announce the arrival of Cobalt3's patent pending Pyramid™ V Computer Chassis Fan Noise Reduction System! Engineered around the premise that today's PC typically operates well below the heat capacity for which its chassis fan cooling system is designed, the Pyramid™ V is a microprocessor controlled, small footprint device. Based on its Innovative thermal management system the Pyramid™ V reduces computer chassis fan noise by almost 40% while lowering power consumption and increasing user productivity.
Using a microprocessor, the Pyramid™ V controls a computer's cooling fans and only speeds them up when the computer demands it. The temperature sensor is placed inside the case at the warmest location ensuring that the temperature will not rise too high at any location. The Pyramid™ V is a "smart" device since it speeds the fans up variably and NOT in a low/medium/high fashion like other fan speed systems.
Despite, its small size the Pyramid™ V is capable of handling the biggest of power requirements with its exclusive Dual Power Output Driver Technology (dPOD™). Additionally, the Dual Power Output Driver makes the Pyramid™ V a true active control system as it does not have the typical voltage drop that prevent other systems from achieving 100% of a fan's maximum speed.
Several fail safe modes have been built into the Pyramid™ V. For example: The built in temperature sensor also interacts with the internal processor to continually measure for high damaging temperatures inside the case which upon detection it sounds the audible alarm and runs the case fans at their highest speed.
