The Recon is a pretty advanced piece of hardware and sports two microprocessors that constantly interacts with your motherboard to provide up-to-date information. It also is internet connected and controllable through any internet connected device with a web browser. Since it is managed through a web browser, nearly any device can manage it.

The Hydra Pro is designed to be a powerful fan and LED controller. It features 5 different thermal channels that each provide 30W. The fans are controlled by low profile sliders to make it compatible with nearly every case. The Hydra Pro really shows its worth when you combine it with Spectre and Spectre Pro LED fans as the LEDs are controllable with the touch of a button.

The Hydra Pro will be released in June and come with an MSRP of $34.90 in North America. These should look at home in nearly any case.
