Installation and Finished Product
With all of the basics now under our belt, we went ahead and set things up for testing. Digging through the fan pile, we went with a random assortment from various manufacturers for testing. At this point, we are all wired up to the fans as well as the PSU, so let's power this thing up.
For testing, we installed a pair of thermal probes, which are currently displaying ambient temps of the photo booth. As for the six fans, the controller ships with all six dials set to the lowest position, which is why currently it displays "OFF."
To gain control of any channel on the Six Eyes II, simply push the dial in, and you will hear a click, then just release the dial. It will slowly pop out of the controller's face, and allow you to spin the dial to the right, adding voltage to the fans at whatever level you wish.
We find that even with the channel currently in the "OFF" setting, each of the channels still was producing one volt through each channel. For our picks on fans, it was nowhere near enough to even attempt to spin any of them.
With resistance of the device factored in, and getting the power reading at the end of the included fan leads where each fan plugged in, this is the average across all six channels. Some were slightly lower, some slightly higher, but we are speaking of 0.03V difference in fluctuation.
At this point, we popped all the dials and got the fans spinning, some at full speed, some much less. The idea here is to show that each channel is reading the individual RPM on their channels, and can allow for individual fans on each channel, or groups of fans on each channel, to be dialed into the best performance.
With the functional bits out of the way, we feel it is high time we play around with the LEDs. Of course, like we mentioned previously, there are seven total color choices, but we simplified it and picked our favourite three; one of which is this deep blue. The light blue looks nice as well, and to be honest, even the white is more of a pale blue color as well.
We also dug the apple green offered in the Six Eyes II. The deep green is nice, but this apple green is just one of those colors you won't see on many other products, and will definitely set your chassis apart from the rest just with this option alone.
The last of our favorites was red. It is simple, easy to read, and even in the dark, it makes reading and seeing things at a glance much easier than some of the brighter color choices.
