I have this one and I hate it. http://www.aerocool.us/p-peripheral/gatewatch2/gatewatc...
I had a Thermaltake one that I had to RMA twice before I gave up on it. My advice is to forget the digital ones. I thought it would be cool too, to have it control them automatically, and monitor temps at the same time. It doesn't work. Half the time, it thinks one of my fans has died, so it gives me a warning beep, and I check the fan, and it's working just fine. The temp sensors are +/- 10 *C at all times. If it's the right temp, it's a freak accident of some sort.
My main problem now is finding the "Remote Control Panel" Someone told me that there is a 20-24pin "converters" but I can’t find them. Also can someone plz tell me how the installation for this would work? Does MOBO's have 2 spots for 24 pin power connectors? Or would I have to plug the "Remote Control Panel" connector to the PSU connector & would there be a 3rd plug to connect it to the mobo?... does this make sense? I'm confused lol. Also would I still be able to turn the CPU on, with the regular button push?
Things like that are just going to complicate your build. They may be cool for the first month, but then after the "wow" factor wears off, it will just be a pain in your ass. Trust me, thats the same thing I thought about mine too.
Just my opinion, but I definitely wouldn't mess around with something like that, nor will I ever do it again.
I really hope this didn't sound rude, I'm just really at the end of my nerves with this stupid fan controller.
