Cooler Master Aerogate II - Thermal Controlling your PC

Overall, this product's con's clearly outweigh its pro's even though it's extremely nifty at hand and is all-around very stylish. In future versions of this product, we look forward to the ability to manually shut off the device and improved viewing angles for the display. Another useful feature would be the power to switch between a dynamic and static mode: where you could toggle between the unit displaying each component's temperature in periods of five seconds, or from one component's temperature being permanently displayed until you select another component.


Though, do not let the cons or lack of features throw you off track. This product is one of the most newbie-friendly and easy-to-install thermal monitoring solutions I've seen in a very long time. If your motherboard does not have built-in thermal sensors, then this device is an absolute must for any overclocker. Not only this, but the product's built in thermal monitoring sensors and in-house fan are both two incentives to purchase this product.


The Aerogate II runs for around $45 US in most retail stores, a very reasonable price for its built-in components and basic features.
