I can already tell this T-balancer bigNG gives you a lot of options to play with. Probably a bit too much for the casual user out there, but it's nice knowing we can actually change and adapt almost every aspect of the cooling/noise balance held by this fan control.
I was a bit skeptical about the software at start, but my worries were unfounded. There are lots of options to explore and not only did it run stable during the course of these tests, possible issues can be resolved by checking for software and firmware updates at the mCubed site.
In the end it’s hard to find any real disadvantages. The onboard microcontroller works like a charm, you can almost attach an infinite number of sensors to the unit and the acrylic case gives it a sort of alien look that differentiates it from others. The software is easy to use and a prime example of excellent engineering.
The price tag should be around €67 now, not much more than you'll end up paying when buying another high end fan controller. mCubed claimed this is the most advanced fan controller ever made, and we certainly won’t deny this, it’s an unique product and sits alone at the top.
Since the bigNG is quite an innovative and an unique product it gets our Novelty recommended tag:
I like to thank mCubed
for allowing us to test drive their product.
