Fans, Setup, and Use
Along with the Commander FT, Thermaltake also sent along a set of four Riing fans in the 120mm flavor. We are also given four out of the five color choices available, but we did get our samples prior to the release of the orange versions now offered.
With some basic fan connections made, and the Molex connection tied into a PSU, we are just about ready to power things up, but we are also rereading the manual to make sure we know what we are able to do once the Commander FT powers up.
As we initially power the Commander FT, we see that the screen powers up, as well as we now see the fan spinning, and the LED rings on them are glowing brightly. Now it is time to move closer and see what we are able to do.
Going over what we see, there is a tiny light bulb icon that will enable or disable the LED backlighting, and we see that all channels are set to run the Auto setting, where currently the power supplied is cut to 40%. At the bottom on the left, we can set all channels to minimum speed, or maximum speed, by pressing the slider icons. The right side then offers channel selection, temperature and RPM readouts, and a plus and minus to adjust the alarms thermal setting.
When the channels are chosen, if the slider is set to the lowest speed of 30% the channel number is replaced with an "L", just like how when we have the slider at 100%, it shows the "H" we see in this image.
Messing around with the temperature settings, we can indeed change the scale that the temperature is displayed in, but that same display can be used to adjust the thermal alarm, where you use the + and - buttons to move the setting from 40 degrees Celsius at the low-end, up to 90 degrees at the high-end.
