Scythe just unveiled its marvelous new Kaze Chrono Fan controller model (KM07-BK), a fan controller planned for 5.25 inch drive bays and exemplified by a large LCD panel with a brick matrix similar to Tetris handhelds which can display temperature, fan speed of various channels, sense a stopped or a failing fan or simply work as a clock (which flashes alarms too).
The controller extracts power from a single-4pin connector and consists of four 3-pin fan headers that permits any sort of speed alteration of up to four self-regulating fan channels. Speed can be controlled by selecting the channel and holding down the + or – button.
It measures 148.5mm x 83 x 42mm and weighs around 165g. We expect Scythe to begin shipping of this product sometime this month. The price will hit US $40.
