Since I setup a my new gaming rig last year, I’ve not found a suitable fan controller – that was until I encountered the Deepcool Rockman, a compact fan controller.
Sleek black panel and knobs that matches practically any black casing, the Rockman is a no brainer when it comes to installation and usage.
I can’t describe it any better really. It’s as what you see in the photos.
The back panel comes with 3 connector ports for the fan, and 1 molex connector for the power.
Just the fan controller and 3 cables for you to extend or change the fan’s power connector type. And yes, a very simple installation guide……… because it’s easy to install fan controllers. 😛
Installation & Operation
Installation of this device was a breeze, it’s light and easy to manage. Pop it on any of your available 3.5″ bays or 5.25″ bays and get the power and fan connectors in place and you’re ready to use.
I mounted it on my 5.25″ in bay, held by the 5.25″ to 3.5″ adapter that came with the casing. It looks nicer when I place it up on top, along with the POWER / HDD LED and also the Coolermaster Musketeer.
Yes guys and gals, the Musketeer is just a deco on my rig. 🙂 Notice the banner for the PC Buying Guide? That’s my other rig (formerly my main rig) with a Vantex Nexus fan controller and another Coolermaster Musketeer.
Oh my I’m straying………. anyway, enough of my rig stories. Here’s *drum roll please!* MY FIRST VIDEO ON YOUTUBE! Yup! And a first on goldfries.com articles too! 😛 I’ll be using video more often from now, after all what better way to demonstrate the SOUND ACTIVATED LED!
No speech? Yeah, maybe next time. 😛
Anyway controller #1 allows you voltage variance of 7V to 12V while #2 and #3 allow to reduce voltage to 0V to 12V! That means 2 of the controllers allow you to reduce fan speed until 0 RPM, which is really sweet. 🙂 I think there’s no need to elaborate further on the 4th knob, which controls the light on the controller.
I like this device very much.
The small size of this device allows more option on how it could be mounted. 🙂 If you’re into case-modding, perhaps you could try mounting it on the top of the casing if space allows. The ability to off the fans and off the light is a plus too.
And what I like most is that it’s cheap, you should be about to get it at around RM 60. Price varies among sellers.
