Default mCubed T-Balancer bigNG Advanced Fan Controller Review

mCubed introduced their first product back in 2004, named the T-Balancer XL we tested it and found it to be the most advanced and feature rich fan controller out there; rather than waiting for the competition to catch up, mCubed decided to up the stakes and they've released the T-Balancer bigNG, which aims to improve on the features and capabilities of the XL.

Someone else brought this forward:

Madshrimps assembled their BigNG incorrectly. One of the acrylic panels has a large rectangular cutout for the central heatsink, which can get as hot as 80 C (!) according to the manual.

Mich_vm who did the review told me neither of the acrylic panels had a cut-out like shown on the picture of the box as well as in other reviews he's seen of the unit;

I think our sample was from an early batch, all versions should have the cut-out
