This is a very nice controller. It fits in my rack and connects with 120mm fans that keep my processor and amp cool. I can set it to turn on a specific temps either at full tilt or in increments as the temp rises. There are many settings but too many to talk about in this review. It's well worth the money.
I installed this into an 85-inch tall Sanus rack full of home theater, networking, and file server gear. I originally tried one of AC Infinity's fans that combines the functionality of this product with three variable-speed fans in a single unit. Unfortunately, AC Infinity's fans are very loud, and I could hear coil whine from them almost 30 feet away, in another room, even when they were running on low. Unacceptable.However, I really liked the functionality of the controller, so I decided to try the Controller 12 with the Sanus Ultra Quiet fan. (The Sanus fan is very quiet, with no noticeable coil whine.) Note that this is not officially supported by AC Infinity. They say that the Controller 12 should only be used with AC Infinity products. But, electricity is electricity, and the 12V outputs on the Controller 12 are fully compatible with the Sanus fan.I have been using the Controller 12 for four months now, and it works wonderfully. I placed the included thermometer in the exhaust air stream at the top of the rack and programmed the Controller 12 to adjust the speed of the fan in six steps, based upon the temperature of the exhaust air in relation to the programmable target temperature for maximum fan speed. The fan rarely runs at full speed, ranging between 2 (low) and 5 (high) depending upon what's running in the rack. This setup effectively minimizes fan noise and power-draw while maximizing cooling whenever it is needed.
TL;DR:Primary issues with this are:Some disingenuous marketing materials and feedback that lead consumers astrayLots of functional information missing from their documentation (ie fan failure notifications for externally connected fans, etc.)Non-standard fan connection methods and different voltages for eachPoor AC Infinity branded associated fansPros:Nothing else exists that has this feature set period.(See my other reviews for the 2U exhaust and intake fans for information as to how to replace the internal fans with lower noise variants- I’ll keep this review to the standalone controller).So, here’s the scoop:I couldn’t fully rely on the AC Infinity product line to get the performance and noise levels I wanted. So, if you’re like me and want the best performance you can manage read on for some important considerations and a bit of a guide.I like good product design and packaging but I don't think it makes up for product limitations of which there are a few with this ecosystem. But, the lack of competitive products doing the same thing on the market gives AC Infinity the advantage of being more or less the only game in town with its feature set. That being said there's a lot of upsides to their product, it's simple, modular, affordable, and very straightforward for the average consumer to get some results. If you aren't the average consumer you might be disappointed. (A person with a rack in their house should probably not consider themselves the average consumer anyhow). For me, I wasn't willing to accept the noise of their fans both internal and external variants, even on the absolute lowest fan setting.This product left me saying, well, how can I take this attractive, simple fan controller and make something that better suits my needs (lower noise, better performance, greater range of speed control).Unfortunately, AC Infinity Product reps answering questions on amazon have been pretty obviously cagey about the compatibility of their controllers with aftermarket fans, seemingly with the goal of keeping people purchasing only from within the AC Infinity ecosystem. After all, really all of these products are built around one piece of technology and reutilized in different form factors: their fan controller module / fan units. I think it a bit silly given this fact that they haven't spent more effort on their fan design.If they wanted to be more accommodating, they could have easily provided standard headers in the rear of the unit. Anyhow, let me provide some clarification for anyone curious (and please, follow this advice at your own risk and understanding it's likely voiding of your warrantee):First off: There is nothing proprietary about their fans. There's no locked rotor or other feature that would prevent let's say a Noctua from being used. However, they've gone to great lengths to discourage this and encourage using their own product line. This would be fine, however their fans are quite noisy and in my homelab environment they just aren't cutting it.They say their fans have PWM Motors, which is great, only their fan controller doesn’t have a PWM signal so it’s a useless feature! It gives you the impression they are using PWM fan control, however the controllers are definitively voltage controlled. This is simply incorrect / misleading in their part:Voltages: What exactly are the voltages provided at the six speed settings for both 5V and 12V fans? I’m glad you asked, because I pulled out the DMM and measured:12V (DC connector): 4.2V, 5.6V, 6.9V, 8.6V, 10.28V, 11.9V5V (USB connector): 3.2V, 3.7V, 4.2V, 5.2V, 5.6V, 6.2VNotice the last three settings on the USB are overvolting, which could reduce fan lifespan and will run the fan at over its rated speed between speed 3-6.The 12V line will have trouble with a Noctua A12x25 at its lowest settings. The 5V Noctua variant of the same fan on usb will operate across all speeds, but is overvolted at higher speeds which may reduce life, increase noise, etc.Plugs and Voltage: The DC jack connected fans operate at 12V, the USB connected fans operate at 5V. Noctua makes a great 5V variant of their flagship fan that includes a USB adapter.Speed Control Mechanism: None of the fans utilize a PWM signal, only voltage control. External fans utilize only +/- 12V, while units with internal fans connect the Tach signal. I'm not sure how the signal is used by the microprocessor but likely as a fan fail alert. That would indicate to me that fan fail alerts are not possible utilizing external fans.This also means it's totally possible to use the resistor method / Noctua Low Noise Adapters for even lesser noise on external fans should you choose. It will not trigger a failure mode.Connectors: Models with internal fans use mini-JST type connectors. Adapters are plentiful on Amazon as it is frequently used as a standalone GPU fan header. Or, you can make your own and swap them out. Their pin out is standard. When replacing internal fans, be mindful to remove the display assembly carefully. Keep it held together, and pay attention to its position. Work on an uncluttered surface to keep track of parts and screws. Things are a little cramped in there and this is delicate.For the internal fans it’s possible to completely remove the female JST header (carefully!) with a pair of electrical pliers and the pins will remain intact. Then, you can plug a 3 pin or a 2 pin fan directly into those pins without resorting to adapters or making custom cables. It worked like a charm for me. However, a 4 pin fan will not fit as there are nearby caps and components.For the external DC Plug you want a 5.5 x 2.1mm barrel power jack adapter, in which there are two screw down terminals for the +12V and -12V that will accommodate virtually any fan in production. For 3 or 4 pin fans, simply omit connecting those pins. For multiple fans on one port, know the difference between connecting them in series or parallel.For the USB external connector all you need is a 4-pin (will also work fine for 3 and 2 pin male fan plugs) PWM to USB fan adapter and if using multiple fans. For multiple fans on the same USB port you’ll also need a fan splitter or usb splitter depending on how you want to address it. Again, familiarize yourself with what it means to connect these in series or in parallel.
