Scythe Kaze Master Ace 5.25" tested - 2. Packaging

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review:
Fan RPM controller and heat sensor in one neat package









As we’ve learned to expect from Scythe, the package features a bunch of info and details on the controller. The info shows that the fans can be controlled independently and that the device will measure temperatures in four locations with readings in Celsius or Fahrenheit. It also comes with an acoustic alarm which goes off if the temperatures exceed a certain threshold (75°C) or the fans stop spinning.

On the back of the box you’ll find a list of Kaze Master Ace’s connectors and the left side features specs.

In the box you’ll find everything you need for hassle free installation. The fan extension cords are 71cm long and are marked with numbers from 1 to 4. Naturally, it doesn’t matter in what order you connect the fans, but the numbering is quite a welcome addition in this respect as the VFD panel displays numbers next to the readouts, so you can conveniently arrange them as you see fit. The sensor cables are the same length and although the device supports only four, we received six of them. Not that you’d ever need to replace these cables; we’ve been using them for five months and had no trouble whatsoever. The installation manual is pretty useful and it’s probably wise to stick to it during installation.
