Scythe Kaze Master Flat II Supports Up To 36W per Channel

Scythe has announced yet another new fan controller – the Kaze Master Flat II. This fan controller is built with a simple front panel design with quite potent hardware behind it to back it up. It fits in a standard 5.25" bay.

The unit has four channels, each of which can drive up to 3 amps. At 12 V this equates to 36 W per channel. The channels' output voltage can be adjusted to run as low as 3.7 V, and both 3-pin and 4-pin PWM fans can be connected. When using PWM fans though, the unit will still only control them through voltage adjustments, as the unit does not have PWM support.

The unit also has four temperature sensors set to measure temperatures up to 100 C. Users can also set alarms to go off at 50, 60, 70, 80, or 90 degrees C, depending on what was selected.

On the display, users will see RPM measurements as well as temperature measurements in either C or F.

Pricing for the unit is set at €26 ex. VAT, which translates to about $36.

    For $35 why not?

    Id like to see 6 channel support and the ability to have fans running very slow during idle and ramp up during heavy load or temp increase. Id pay more for that kind of thing.
