Scythe Kaze Master Pro 5.25
Cooling performance is always the one of the main concern’s for overclockers and PC enthusiasts. Whether it’s air or water cooling we need fans to remove the heat from our heatsinks, radiators but on a whole the entire system needs to be emptied of the heat generated by our components.
The more fans we use the better thermal cooling, however in return the trade-off of using multiple fans is the noise. If you want to balance out the noise and the performance you need to regulate the fan speeds. Today’s average modern motherboards don’t have enough fan headers, perhaps 3-4 headers at most, but some systems can run up to six fans or more.
This is when a fan controller becomes extremely handy; it gives users the freedom to manually control the fan speed to optimize the cooling performance. There are a fair number of fan controllers on the market to choose from and each has different features and specifications to suit your taste and needs. Some are just plain straight forward volt regulating units and some have colourful graphs and lighting like fireworks going off on the Fourth of July.
Scythe is the most recognizable name for their quality and performance fans, Scythe are not only manufacturing PC fans, but they are also manufacture CPU and GPU coolers, PSU’s and fantastic fan controllers.
