Kingwin has a great idea for their controller. I love the idea of the controller taking over, automatically cranking up those fans when I start playing a game, so I simply donít have to think about my system ever getting too hot because I forgot to adjust my controller before gaming. It takes a lot of the worry out of my system heating up. Itís also great for cases which have covers over the CD-ROM drives. You will no longer have to open your door to adjust your fan speeds.
With a small modification, this controller has become exactly what I have wanted out of a fan controller, silence at idle, and full power fans when I start to do some work. If you are interested in automatic fan speeds based on temperatures, and do not mind a little bit of modding, you might want to pick up a Kingwin Thermal Center CT-02S.
