Reeven Polariz RFC-04 Fan Controller Review

The top of the box in which the Polariz RFC-04 is shipped, Reeven chose a flat black for the background. This allows them to use white for the naming and features along the top and also offers our first look at what the front of the fan controller looks like.





Moving into the thin side panels, we see Reeven kept it simple here. We find the Polariz naming above the actual fan controller, and there are notations to the fan speed, temperature, and voltage reading on the LCD screen on the left.




Spinning the box around, we run into this description next. The main points are that this is car dashboard inspired, it offers 30W per channel, and it is made of metal for structural stability, and also the fine textures offered within its design.




One more spin brings us to the specifications chart. The entire panel is used to display what we just addressed but is offered here in seven languages. Near the bottom, we also find the Reeven site address to look easily for more information on this product.




On the last of the thin side panels, we run into the Polariz items list. Shown with images and in the text that we get the RFC-04, four sensor cables, four fan cables, an instruction sheet, four screws, and while not shown, we also get stickers for the thermal sensor cables.




Even the bottom of the box has something to offer. Here we find a list of cautionary statements concerning the installation and use of the Polariz fan controller. Most of them are common sense, while some of them near the bottom may be safety bits for things you may not have pondered.




After lifting the literature and a layer of dense foam from above the inner packaging, we can see how well this fan controller is packed for shipping. The fan controller is in its section at the back and is also wrapped in plastic to protect the paint finishes. All of the goodies that come along with the RFC-04 are in the smaller section at the front, and will not cause any damage to the fan controller.




While they are currently bundled, the thermal sensor leads and the fan power leads are both twenty-eight inches in length and are also covered in a black braid to help them disappear into the chassis. There are four M3 screws shipped with the controller for mounting it to the ODD bay of the chassis, and we also see four yellow stickers to use with the thermal probes, to be able to attach them to various devices inside of the system.




This is what you get for instruction to install the RFC-04, and how to use its optional settings. After showing how to make all of the connections, and what is displayed on the face of each knob, we move into the dip switch settings. Here you can swap thermal scales with the first switch, and the other three used in various positions, are used to change the scale to which the alarm will sound if hit. Beyond that, it states that spinning the knob to the right increases voltage, while twisting them left will lower the voltage.
