Reeven Six Eyes II (RFC-02) Fan Controller Review

Reeven Six Eyes Fan Controller




Fresh out of the box, we get our first look at the face of the Six Eyes II. The top and bottom edges are angled back from the full extent of the front panel, and offer a place for the Reeven name at the top. On either side, there are three knobs marked in Roman numerals, while across the center are the two rows of three LCD screens.




Along with the face of the Six Eyes II, both sides and the bottom support section are made of black plastic, and all sections not seen are left smooth. On either side of the controller there are a pair of holes like these that will work with any tool-free clips, and will align with screw holes in bay racks as well.




If you are not familiar with the layout of the original, the major change seen here will be less impressive. For those that are familiar, it is easy to see that the power delivery system has been considerably beefed up, and the PCB layout has changed almost everywhere except for the layout of plugs, sensor ports, and switches across the back edge.




Instead of having huge passive heat sinks on power FETs, this time around, we see the main delivery runs through the FETs at the back, through what I assume are chokes, and then it runs through the chemical capacitors in the front row before it is distributed to the six channels of this controller.




As we move in very close to the right end of the last image, we find the onboard controls. The three-pin jumper on the left changes the display between Fahrenheit and Celsius by moving the jumper. The red switches on the left are to control the various settings of the thermal alarm, and the one to the right changes the display LEDs. The two pins to the right allow the alarm buzzer behind it to be disabled by removing the jumper.
