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








Today we dissected Scythe Kaze Master Ace 5.25’’, a device whose primary goal is to make fan-speed regulation easy. Anyone can get wary of noisy fans, and thanks to Scythe, users are now capable of compromise where they can sacrifice thermals for silence the way they see fit. Kaze Master Ace 5.25’’ provides independent control over 4 fans with RPM readouts clearly displayed on the large VFD panel. The controller will take up to 4 heat-sensors with cables long enough to reach the farthest corners of your case if it’s required. Naturally, temperature readouts will be displayed on the screen as well.

Although this device has been on the market for over a year, Kaze Master Ace 5.25’’ is far from old. As you can see for yourself, its simplicity makes it a great addition to any case, and it’s compatible with almost any type of fan. The only thing to heed is that each of the 4 fan-channels support up to 12W maximum, but this will be more than enough for most users.

We must admit that this little device made our life much easier, and it introduces many benefits to anyone from seasoned pros to amateurs. The device enables monitoring temperatures and fan speed at all times, thus keeping tight reins on their pet, and if you ever change a case, bringing your little-big Kaze Master Ace 5.25’’ with you won’t be a problem. Kaze Master Ace 5.25’’ is a simple device that takes care of an important task, and we have no choice but to recommend it.

The Kaze Master Ace 5.25’’ is available in black and silver and you can find it priced at about €30, here.
