Installing The Hardware With The Assistant
Now that the hardware is good to go, we can turn our attention to the software. Installation takes no time at all and the fan controller and the Lightblaster - the name of the lightshow generator - are ready for use. Each of the connected heat sensors can be assigned to a fan. Depending on the temperature, the fan turns faster or slower than the predefined value, accordingly. This avoids an unnecessary rise in noise levels in the PC. The T-Balancer monitors fan failure and reports a standstill after a specified time.
If no hardware is located when the program is run, you may want to lower the USB settings in the motherboard BIOS from USB 2.0 to 1.x. This, however, means that high-speed end devices, such as mobile hard drives, USB sticks and scanners, will only work at the slower transmission speed. That can be a painstakingly laborious affair when reading and writing.
