The Lian-Li TR-5B Temp Sensor / Fan Controller is an elegant backlight display made by Lian Li to match their cases. It features monitoring of 4 fans and 4 temperature probes. By default, the TR-5 will automatically adjust the speed of the fans connected to the unit based off the temperatures it reads. However, the user can select for a fan to be at one of five speeds or leave it at automatic. The TR-5 has both fan and temperature alarms - and the temperature alarms can be adjusted. The included Lithium Ion battery makes sure the unit doesn't forget your settings, even if it is disconnected.

Second chance and FAILED!10-01-2009

This unit is a nice one and functions correctly, but the buttons tend to get stuck till they stop working and this is the second one I have received that the backlighting has gone out within a couple months.
10 months Still working Great!08-06-2009

You hold the B button for four seconds to access the temp/fan adjustment. Press A to adjust the selected Fan speed/warning temp. Hold B for Seven seconds to adjust the time/date. Tap A to Change from C to F Press C to select a temp to monitor. or double tap C to make it scroll between fan/temp again. 10 months this product still works like new. I bought a NZXT monitor also that failed recently. Another Cheaper (bought from newegg) LCD unit also failed in a customers PC. but this one dispite going through two thermisters (my own fault for attempting to wiggle them between heatsink fins) is still going strong. These Types tend to dim over time but the sealed Display i guess helps keep the dust out. Oh its LED and not CCFL like some of the cheap ones. I still recommend this product like the day i bought it. It might not be flashy or have alot of extra functions. But if all you need is a indepedent monitor for your componants then i''d probably choose this one. This unit is also really thin. Which allows you to stick a HDD or Water resevoir behind it. Can''t really think of any solid complaints besides the lack of directions. but again just goto the lian-li website and they have a neat flash program explaining (in great detail) about how this unit works. Theres also a mysterious USB connection on the back. I''ve yet to figure out what it is for but the computer senses it when i gator clipped it to a USB slot. 5/5 For sure.The thing is a tank.

I thought that this product being from lian li, it would be a good controller but i was very wrong! its not very user friendly, fan control is just too hard to work with. I really with i would have just gone with something else.
I hope it is worth it03-26-2009

If yo9u have never installed a fan controller, this can be intimidating. The instruction for physical install are non existent. All they show is how to set it, and the cables, no physical connection to the mobo at all.
Caution, May make your computer bad ass.01-05-2009

Excellent Viewing angle side to side. Large Buttons and a loud speaker. This unit also Changes To red and flashes while emitting a beep when it senses a temp or fan failure. Controls 4 fans easily even high amperage ones. Manual Selection of each temp/fan or a auto scroll feature. Only as 24hr time not 12hr, Fit and finish is Also Excellent. Cables are long and are removable. reads in both F and C. Excellent Value for the money. Lithium ion Battery is included. Also Has Manual or Automatic Fan control. Has 5 total fan speeds from lo/1-5/hi. Worth the money. Directions are almost complete Crap use lian-li''s main website for directions on how to set the unit up they have a good flash program showing how to.
