Default Vantec Tornado and NXP-205 Multi Fan Controller Review

If you want extreme performance from your air cooled system then this Tornado fan might be what you need. The generated noise is equally extreme, thatīs why Vantec recommends the use of a fan controller; in this review we take a look at the NXP-205 fan controller used in combination with their high CFM CPU/Case fan.

I like the 3 and 4 pins connector function.

Guess I have to get some.

too bad the 3 pin connectors don't have an extension for rpm monitoring

Besides the fact that it can be used as a case or CPU fan, it also comes in handy in the kitchen. Pick the correct fan grill, turn the fanon, and chop or rasp your vegetables. Perfect for the lazy cook!

maybe make an article of=> how to implet the tornado in to your kitchen

eh ? i mean the fact that when ou use a 3pin fan header directly on the fancontroller or on the extension cable, there is no possibility to plug it into the mainboard rpm header...

Does the 4-pin only effect the voltage; but unablet to read RPM, right?

That would be my understanding.

wow, what happend to the first pic of the fancontroler and fan .

Ow, "removed the noise 40 mm fan".

Good review, like the carrot joke .
But why don't they make 5-12V fancontrolers, I know there would be a risk that the fan wouldn't spin anymore, but then add an alarm for that.
