just got one of these in the mail today. really nice product , even comes with a microfiber cloth

the controls are pretty hard to use, but if you have a touch pad or palm pen lying around you can use that.

Put a delta fan onto your mobo and see what happens :P

I still feel that the good old analogue controllers are best, though I really must say - hats off to Lamptron on the design on the PCB. See how well spaced out the male fan connectors are? Sure beats having to fiddle with a Scythe (Master Pro I'm looking at you) or other brands where they are all jumbled up together.

Also, with 30W per channel, you can't go wrong.

I think I might pick one of these up in my next order, a knobbed design wouldn't go with my case and theme. I would use the auto feature to adjust the chambers in my case independantly so it would be a set and forget thing for me. My pcx2000 has a built in fan controller but it is limited to 3 speeds and only 3 fans, one is chained.

I agree the only mobo fan header I use is the CPU for PWM. Been using controllers since 01-02 have not looked back since.
