Well folks, there you have it in all of its glory. Aerocool hit on all the major points of what a fan controller should offer users, and even took it a few steps further. While knobs or sliders would work, the touchscreen LCD is top notch gear, and it will make all of your friends envious of your fan controller. There is also the fact that over all five channels you can stack multitudes of fans before you reach the 125W combined maximum potential. If anything, this is just a failsafe to allow users to do almost any conceivable build with as many fans as you can pack into one chassis. Offering the controller in seven colors; with purple, yellow, white, and light blue not being shown previously and then of course if you need it dark in the room for sleeping or movie viewing, you can simply turn off the LCD screen all together. Can you really ask for more in a fan controller?
During my testing I did find that the controller seemed to frustrate me at first, but then I realized it just takes a moment, and the settings will kick over to what you just asked the controller to do. After I knew that, using the Touch-2100 was almost second nature, touch the RPM, hit the minus keys a few times, and then the RPM again, and away it goes to slow down the fans. It is the same way for the alarm settings.
What I really like is the built in speaker - this way you don't have to look and see if the dashes are progressing across the screen of the Touch-2100. If a thermal barrier is broken, or the fan on a channel stops, the alarm will beep the amount of times to correspond to the channel number. This way you know right away where the issue is, and hopefully fix it easily. Funny enough, I actually found myself using this on my open air test bench for CPU coolers. Without any form of dual ODD bays, I find that the sides are long enough and supportive enough that you can easily use this device sitting on a table as well. While it may not look as nice as it will in a chassis, for the modders and enthusiasts out there, this may be a better answer than the $200 version that come in a plastic box, but done come close to what the Touch-2100 brought to the table.
With all the options available, the alarm system, the bold and easy to see backlit LCD screen and the fact that it is easy to control with just a few presses of the finger tip, the Touch-2100 wins big in all categories. It has all the power you are going to need, it has five zones if you will, and five thermal probes to verify the best thermal results throughout the chassis, there really isn't anything more a buyer will need in an onboard fan controller. Then you consider that you are getting an additional pair of USB 3.0 ports, and you can move the HD Audio from the top of the chassis to the front if you want, Aerocool really delivers something worthy of everyone's attention.
The fact that this can be had for around $65 anywhere inside of the USA, it just makes the deal all that much sweeter. I highly recommend the Touch-2100 from Aerocool for anyone with serious fan control needs.
