Who We Recommend
The Thermal-Star LCD Media Panel 7-in-1 Card Reader / Fan Controller / Temp. Display fits in any standard 5.25" drive bay and allows monitoring and control of up to 4 fans. It also reports temperatures from 4 temperature probes and will activate an alarm if one of the probes reports a temperature above the set threshold. All of the reporting is done via a back-light Blue LCD display that can report the temperatures in both Celsius and Fahrenheit. If that weren't enough, the panel also has a 7-in-1 card reader with both CF and MS card slots. An eSATA port is also integrated, leaving no space on the panel unused.
7-in-1 Card Reader
The card reader supports both CF and MS cards, the most popular flash media.
Automatic or Manual Fan Control
While the panel has 4 knobs for controlling each fan channel directly at the press of a button it can switch over to "Auto" mode and control the fans based off of the temperatures reported by its temperature probes.
Four Channels for Fans
The panel has four separate power channels for controlling four fans independently.
Four Temperature Channels
With four included temperature probes, the LCD display can show the current temperature readings from each probe.
Back-Light LCD Display
To aid reading of the LCD display in the dark, it is back-light with a cool blue glow. The display reports the current fan control status (manual or auto), the RPM of any one of the fans it is controlling, the temperature reported by any one of the temperature probes and the current setting for the temperature alarm. The temperatures can be displayed in either Celsius or Fahrenheit.
The adjustable temperature alarm will beep when one of the temperature probes reports a temperature that is higher than the alarm's chosen temperature setting.

I''m revisiting this unit because after 2.5 years of use; I''m looking for another one. The only issue I have with this offering is that after 2.5 years, the display has dimmed almost to the point of going dark. It has worked flawlessly for 2.5 years; longer than most people keep computers !!!

Reviewer: John (1)
it worked great for a month and then started to break down fan 2 started to have a mind of their own, then fan 3 shut completely down. I''m sending it back and ordering some 3 pin cable extensions so I can plug the fans into my motherboard chassis fan outputs

i agree with skeith....efthimios thanasoulis needs to sell anything electronic. his review is totally stupid. this is a great product that works as claimed. i have been using it almost a year and it works with every fan ive tried, some with led''s and some not. i use 7 case fans so a good controller is needed.the temperatures are very accurate,display is very good and it looks great also. i also agree it could be deeper but its not a big enough issue to take away a star. i have purchased dozens of products from frozen cpu and all have performed as claimed. great service and packing!!!

Easy to install. Makes my HAF-X 942 look even better. Only problem is that I wish the device fit more snug into the coolermaster 942 case (it''s not too loose but it could be better). P.S. To "efthimios thanasoulis", your doing it wrong. It works fine and as advertised. Did you read the instructions?
