Installation & Usage
Installation is pretty basic, just make an empty 5.25” slot in your case and attach it with whatever methods you have (tool-free, screws). However, you will want to make sure all of your cables are plugged in and settings are adjusted properly before installing it in your case, otherwise you’re going to have a bad time trying to work with it inside the case.
Once you have it installed it will power up. Depending on which settings you chose will depend on what shows up on the screen. I chose the default settings which were Celsius and white LEDs. You can also choose from red, green, apple green, blue, purple, and light blue for your choices.
The knob is fairly flexible in terms of adjusting your fan speed. You don’t have to adjust it by hundreds like other fan controllers, but can adjust more by about 10-20 RPMs at a time.
Overall, the Six Eyes is a decent fan controller. It does what it’s supposed to do. It is also flexible in terms of setting adjustments, but I really dislike the fact that you can only make setting changes from the back of the panel. However, this fan controller does offer more than some other famous brand fan controllers.
While I haven’t found this product available on the market yet, there have been reports that it will retail for $57. This is a hefty price for a fan controller, especially one where you can’t make any setting changes on the fly. The only fan controllers that expensive are ones with high quality LCD screens. I would much rather see this go for $30-$40, so hopefully the price will be more reasonable upon release. ThinkComputers would like to award the Reeven Six Eyes Fan Controller a 7 out of 10 score.
