NZXT's new Grid+ fan controller supports the company's CAM utility.
NZXT has revealed a new fan controller at Computex 2014 -- the Grid+. This fan controller is built to work in conjunction with the recently announced CAM software, and can control up to six fans at once.
The controller is built with a single channel, though multiple units will be usable at once in a system. Each controller can be hooked up to six 3-pin fans. 4-pin PWM support is not present. In total, up to 30 W can be drawn from a single Grid+.
It also has a number of built-in safety protections, including OVP and SCP.
The Grid+ itself is also thin enough to be mounted behind motherboard trays in most cases, which will place it in the most ideal location for tidy cable management. Therefore, it can be placed anywhere in the chassis as long as the cables fit, so if you have another preference, you're not obliged to anything.
When we asked NZXT whether it would be possible to use multiple units in a single machine, they said that while at the time it wasn't, it probably will be in the future.
Pricing for the Grid+ is set at $29.99 with immediate availability to preorder directly from NZXT.
