Well you got yourself a custom case, custom components and tons of fans, well if you don’t quite feel satisfied just yet there is something else, a customizable fan controller with switchable LED colors. For myself fan controllers have always been a bit of a gimmick, I like running my fans off molex on full all the time. When HTPC’s came out the loud 100% fan idea seemed a little less intelligent than I had first thought it to be. Not only does the fan controller ad some visual appeal to the front of your chassis it also ads much needed on the fly control over your fan speeds. Aerocool has made some beautiful touch screen fan controllers in the past and I have always been impressed with them but when I first laid eyes on the F6XT fan controller I must say I was taken back just a little. The Controller is not as nice as the previous models. That is of course at first glance. Once I looked a little deeper I started seeing Molex connectors and multiple LED settings, and support for 6 fans! I was finding myself interested once again. Let’s take a good look at the Aero Cool F6XT Fran Controller and see if it’s something you would like for your next build.

  • Controls 6 sets of fan speeds
  • 3 Adjustable speeds: Low / Medium / High
  • Dual LED colors + LED off functions

  • Dimension: 148.6(W) x 42.5(H) x 65(D)
  • Fan connectors: Molex 4 pins
  • Max. wattage per fan channel: 12W

Conclusion:

Well I have used several fan controllers and they were all pretty decent. The F6XT offers support for 6 Fans which I have not seen yet in any other controller plus it uses molex connectors not 3 pin which I prefer. I was shocked when I saw the prices tag was only $25 which in my opinion makes this controller an instant must have for any gaming rig or home theater PC. Plus the LED’s not only change color but can be turned off so again it makes itself a perfect companion to a HTPC.

Would I recommend this product? Yes, it is very inexpensive and offers great simple control over your fans with the ability to change the color scheme or even turn off the LEDs altogether. If you are in the market for a fan controller do not over look the Aerocool F6XT just because of first impressions it is extremely robust and impressive for its price point and size.

Pros:

  • Price!
  • Molex
  • Ability to Control 6 Fans 
  • LED Choices
  • Fits in 5.25 Bays
Cons:
  • For This Price None!
