Overall I was very pleased with the Hardcano 12 unit. While the ability to control the fan speeds was an expected function, the other added features made for a pleasant surprise. Of note was the ability to hook up several powerful fans onto a single channel without fear of burning the unit out. Add to this the ability to control separate channels individually and things look even better.
Of course the looks will also go far in setting this device apart from the crowd. With a sleek overall look and a nice color scheme, it won't take long for others to notice you at your next LAN.
I was a bit disappointed about the default settings reset when rebooting, though. The simple addition of a small battery would take care of this little glitch with ease. Even if you plan on using the automatic fan speed controllers, having to manually reset the alarm levels for each channel wasn't that exciting.
Bottom line...If you've been considering some sort of formal fan speed controller and want something that is not only effective but looks good too, then you should take a look at the Thermaltake Hardcano 12. It handles the fan speeds with ease and even works well as an automatic controller to make it an even better option.
No low amperage rating per channel
Effective automatic mode control
Thermal probes correspond to fan controllers
All settings reset after reboot
No custom alarm settings
