    Kingwin Thermal Center CT-02S Review


    (Page 1 of 6 )

    Who wouldn't want a fan controller that works automatically, adjusting the speed of the fans depending on the temperature of the system, without user intervention? Kingwin offers the CT-02S to answer this need. Mike Mackenzie checks it out to see whether it really works as advertised.

    Introduction

    Today’s latest heatsinks often come with adjustable control knobs, and aftermarket fan controllers offer us users the ability to fine tune the RPM of fans that do not come with such knobs. The majority of these controllers relied on the user to adjust the fan when the system grows warm.

    A few smart fans which in reality were quite dumb have made it to  market. These fans had a thermal probe which, when attached to a processor, would cause the the fan to automatically turn up its speed as the system got warmer. They were quiet dumb because, with the latest generation of processors, which are capable of running far above these smart fans' default settings, they will run at full speed constantly.

    What if a company came out with a truly smart fan controller? It would be one that you could fine tune; one that you could cause to activate the fans to run at full speed, without user intervention, when your components reach a certain temperature. Kingwin developed the Thermal Center CT-02S to do just that. Sadly, this product is not perfect and has several flaws; it could not be used in the way that I had hoped.
