Scythe Kaze Master II Fan Controller Review

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2012-04-09

The new fan controller from Scythe has retractable buttons which are useful in a number of cases, but also includes features like 12V start-up voltage, alarms or power feed control. The VFD display in front lets us check the current fan speeds and temperatures (in degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit) for each channel.

Product Features, Specifications

Product Features:

 

Size / Retractable knobs

 

The Kaze Master is designed to be installed into a 5.25" bay. As sticking-out control knobs would interfere with front panels of computer cases (not being able to close them), the Kaze Master II is equipped with retractable control knobs to make the usage with such models possible.

 

VFD Display

 

The VFD-display let`s the user check both fan rotations and the temperature. It is further possible to choose between Celsius and Fahrenheit.

 

Spin Up Voltage

 

The adjustable voltage range is between 3.7 to 12 volts. But as fans tend to have problems to "get going" in the lower ranges, this function ensures a 12 volt supply right from the start before settling down to the user`s set, desired voltage.

 

Setting of the Heat Alarm Function

 

The Kaze Master offers a wide range of adjustable temperature settings for the alarm to sound. The user can choose between 55 - 90 °C (131 - 194 F) in steps of 5 °C (41 F).

 

Power Feed Control

 

In case the Kaze Master II detects no fan movement for 15 seconds, for safety reasons the power supply will be cut automatically.
