AeroCool Touch-2100 Fan Controller Review

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2013-06-05

The Touch-2100 Fan Controller from AeroCool comes with a responsive multi-colored display and 5 separate channels, from where we can fine-tune the fan speeds or adjust the alarm temperature for the thermistors. Each thermal probe can be attached to the surfaces of our choice with the help of the included adhesive and in case one of these fail, we always have replacements inside the accessory bag.

The extra bundle is held inside a re-sealable transparent plastic bag:




Most of the cable extensions are pre-installed to the back of the controller and we will take a closer look. The first one is the HD Audio connector; this particular connector seemed a little short to use when the fan controller was installed inside our ATCS full tower case from Cooler Master, because it has to travel in a diagonal from the front side of the case (top) to the back side of the case (bottom):




The USB connector is a combo USB 2.0/3.0 variant and can be used depending on what headers we have available on our motherboard:




The controller gets its power from a single MOLEX connector:




Attached to the controller we have no less than 5 temperature sensors:
