PC Fan Control, Touch-Screen Style

While touch-screen fan controls for the PC aren't exactly new (Google for NZXT's SENTRY 2), Aerocool thinks its Touch-2000 is unique. After all, to paraphrase a sales rep who spoke to us at COMPUTEX 2010, "it's patented!"

He was talking about the Touch-2000's two-panel configuration, or how it takes up two 5.25" expansion slots in front of a typical PC case. The added real-estate creates enough space for the following ports: 1 x eSATA, 2 x USB 2.0, 1 x 3.5mm mic-in, 1 x 3.5mm line-out and as pictures show, the Touch-2000 can control up to four fans, and even features Celsius-Fahrenheit conversion for customers who can't handle the metric system.

While the sales rep couldn't come up with a specific price, he did point us to Aerocool's website. The product page does provide a healthy amount of info, including contact info for the sole US distributor and even the manual. Ultimately though, aside from the cool retro Knight Rider aesthetics, what makes a touch-screen PC fan control panel worth the buy?

  • Hrmmmm... I could dig it, if it didn't break the bank to do so.
