Installation & Usage
Installing the panel is pretty simple; you just have to make sure it’s aligned the correct way. Once you have an open 5.25″ bay, just slide the cables and the controller into the slot, making sure the NZXT logo is on the top. I’d recommend removing ties holding the cables together after you feed it through the bay. Once you have it in place just simply attach it to your case and start connecting the fan cables to your case fans and placing the temperature sensors wherever you desire.
Then just power on your computer.
The layout of the panel is pretty simple. On the left side is the temperature display which can be adjusted to Fahrenheit or Celsius by just pressing on it for three seconds. Below that is the increase and decrease buttons, which both adjust alarm temperatures and fan speeds. To the right of that are the five different numbers which indicate the fan and temperature coinciding with that number. Below that is the Manual/Automatic button which also shows the speed in a percentage to the right and a bar graph below. On the very right is the rotating fan which rotates faster depending on the speed of the fan. In the top right corner is the letter R, which will reset to the default settings. A power switch in the bottom right corner turns the panel off/on.
By default all fans are set at auto at 50% speed. To change it to manual just press the manual/automatic light. You can then adjust your speeds to a percentage of the maximum output of the fan. Unfortunately it doesn’t tell you what the RPMs are on the fans.
To switch through the fans you simply hit the fan button on the right side. If you want to change all of the fan settings at once just press the fan button until all of the numbers are lit up.
You can also set the temperature alarm of each fan by simply pressing the temperature once and adjusting it accordingly, then pressing the temperature again to confirm the alarm temperature.
