Introduction, Specifications, and Pricing
Not all that long ago, had you asked us about to Reeven, we would have likely stared back blankly at you and utter something poetic like "um no, should I?". In reality, I really should have as they are a name that is on the move. From almost complete anonymity, Reeven has broken the surface in the vast sea of coolers and fan controllers out there. We have seen a few of their coolers and even a fan controller, and they seem to have their head in the game and offer some decent options.
Of course, we have seen many types of fan controllers from standalone devices, to hidden hubs and controllers, and every other form of bay controller. That being said, not all controllers are created equal, and no everyone wants to look at knobs, sliders, or switches peeking through the front of their chassis all the time. In fact, most companies today offer up digital fan control and going on step further, a few even offer touch control.
Reeven's Four Eyes Touch fan controller is a bay controller and with a sectioned off screen, it offer tons of information and optional settings at just a press away. It even offers various color options so that it will fit in with any theme you may already have. The nice thing is that the features don't stop there, as Reeven adds everything you need, done with cleanliness and being able to hide the wiring in mind as well. The Reeven Four Eyes Touch has a little something for everyone, so stick it out and continue with us as we show just what this fan controller is capable of doing.
In the features, we see that there is an LCD touchscreen panel in the front. With the name Four Eyes, we expected four channels, and that is what we get. It can provide 30W per channel. It also states that there are clear view windows to see the information, and seven color options.
In the specifications, we find that the Four Eyes can also be found looking for the RFC-03 model number. This single 5.25" bay controller is 148mm wide, 42mm tall, and goes 100mm deep into the chassis. It uses both the 5V and 12V power supplied by a SATA power port for voltage control and is shown to deliver 2.5A per channel, and at 12V that works out to 30W per channel. It can read temperatures via sensor wires from 0 to 99 degrees in Celsius, and offers a wider range in equivalent Fahrenheit readings. It can also read fan speeds from 0 to 9990 RPM, and the bay controller without the wiring included weighs in at 200 grams.
Now you cannot just go anywhere and buy these devices, sad to say, but it's true. Currently, as we look around, it seems Reeven has only been able to get into a couple of the PC e-tailers, and not Amazon or Newegg at this time. However, at PerformancePCs.com, they have it for $49.95 with shipping costs involved. You could also look to FrozenCPU.com, as they too show stock of the Four Eyes Touch at $49.99, but without shipping included. For a touch control fan controller, pricing is usually in this range and at this point we feel that the pricing is on point for the feature set offered by this device.
