Reviews
Scythe Kaze Master II Black Fan Controller with LCD display for temp, RPM & Alarm function is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fans tamed! To give some background, I have a Corsair Obsidian 750D and wanted to fully fit out the case in preparation for the forthcoming GTX1080Ti. I bought and fitted a total of seven Noctua Industrial PPC fans and found myself in a situation where I had no where near enough PWM headers on my motherboard to handle all the fans. This was compounded by the fact my motherboard (an MSI X99s Gaming 7) won't let auxiliary fans go below 50% and it was like sitting next to a class 5 hurricane, as all seven fans churned away. Enter the Scythe Kaze Master II. I let the motherboard handle the two on the CPU radiator, as having them software controlled was simpler. The same went for the rear exhaust fan. This left me with two on the front panel and two on the bottom. Although the Kaze Master II has four fan headers, I decided to gang my fans up in pairs using a pack of Noctua "Y" cables (2 in a box) and a pack of Noctua extenders (3 in a box, 2 used). The Kaze Master II does exactly what I needed it to. I now have total control over the two pairs of fans, able to turn them up or down as the case requires. It even came with a set of four temperature probes, so that I can set "auto fan" functions for specific areas/components to trigger a ramp up on fan speed, all without touching a dial. The electronics don't look much, and the chassis is a thin-ish tin, but the fit and function are spot on. If you're in a similar situation to what I was, I can only say "buy it".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptionally good air cooling control Left the CPU fan PWM auto controlled by the system. Arranged the system case with 4 x 120 mm Be Quiet! Silent Wings Pure case fans covering: upper and lower drive bays pulling air in (via the Antec P183 system case dust filters); case top and case rear pushing air out. Arranged the four temperature sensors covering: hard disk case in lower bay; hard disk case in upper bay; at rear of motherboard adjoining CPU; fin on motherboard chipset heat sink. These four case fans and temperature sensors all connected to the Scythe KM05-BK controller. This arrangement operated on two 3XS built computers for some 4 years. The Scythe gives proper control and proper reporting that is software independent. With the right fans you can keep the system virtually silent but cool. All air cooled tower units should be built this way! The Scythe controller is exceptionally good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I only installed the item today, but it seems pretty good, the quality of the panel and item is very nice, the knobs have a nice feel to them and do not feel cheap at all, the alarm is fairly loud which is nice. The only things I would change would be the option to remove the temperature on the panel if I am not actually using the temperature system and it would be great if the bracket was painted black instead of silver, but that is only a minor issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth its cost Having used a good few front i/o controllers i can say for sure this little gem is worth its cost. The quality and finish is very good and it has all the features i look for in a good controller those being: *The ability to turn the fans totally off *Monitoring of all temps without having to push buttons to select a temp *Alarm function I have added a video i made to this review if you would like some more detail on its pro's and con's.

Questions & Answers

how many watts & channels

how many fans can I fit in this controller and how many watts can each channel handle?
Asked by: MJSziklai
I have two fans running off two (out of four total) separate channels using a pair of Noctua Y cables to set the fans up in pairs as they are in the same panel of the case. I could in theory run a total of eight fans using this method so long as the fans don't exceed the rated output of the unit. The power supply from the PSU is a 5v+12v feed, with a DC output of 3.5 ~ 12v, and a maximum of 1A per channel output.

Can the fans be turned totally off?

Will the fans still spin at minimum settings or completely shut off? If they still spin at what % will they run?
Asked by: Swilleh
If you turn the dial all the way to the left, it will cut power and display "off" on the LED readout. The unit will also cut power to the fan if after 90 seconds it detects that it hasn't been spinning even though the fan has been fed power, so that an unattended fan failure or seizure won't result in an electrical fire.
