I have reviewed Reeven product already and from the experience I am really impressed with their quality build and challenging performance. It is said, it is new to cooling, however they are not really limited to Coolers and fan, product line leading to fan controller as well. While there are several fan controllers and especially with too many to compete with, digital ones are very fame since it offering numbers of features to users.
Reeven says about Controller:
FOUR EYES TOUCH makes everything more advanced.
The evolutionary touch panel ensures that information is clearly visualized on the computer top.
In combination with the previously successful features of multi-color switch and high-wattage support (30W), FOUR EYES TOUCH meets the highest demands in accessibility and ease-of-use of gaming enthusiast.
Today I will be focusing on REEVEN digital Fan Controller which is titled as Four Eyes Touch Fan Controller model — RFC-03. As there are many fan controllers in the market right now, floating from top to bottom on quality and feature basis. Four Eyes Fan Controller has been built with features such as Touch screen, Four Eyes mean 4 Fan display LCD, consuming 30W on power and Display information in 7 different color schemes.
Packaging and The Content
Fan Controller was shipped with original box. Contain information and related features mentioned on front and back of the box.
Inside the box, reveal Fan controller which is covered in plastic bag along with several set of accessories includes, mounting material, cables, temperature reading cables and manual of course of guide.
A Closer Look
Unboxed the Fan Controller. This is what we get a first look on it. Completely Black sideways and edges across front LCD. I was finding the brand name on it and yes it is at right bottom with reeven design, however, its only black. Front side displaying two set of panels the upper one contain for LCDs which will display information of 4 different fans such as Current fan speed, Voltages. The bottom is slider for controlling RPM of fan which will work by touching and sliding the LCD to your desire speed.
Let’s head over to what this thing made of and how it is operating inside.
So from the back side of controller which is not enclosed, showing red and black color cable along with short jumper. I noticed that the front screen is actually jammed inside or in other words, screwed inside to avoid any unusual movement of it. So it is completely fixed.
Let’s take a look from Top. The electric board contain several capacitor on it. The left side carrying 4 fan connectors, the 3 pin and at right it has one temperature probe connector, a jumper along. The fan controller is simply powered with SATA connector lies between fan and temperature probe connections.
For mounting Fan Controller, there are 2 parallel holes each side.
In testing zone, I assemble the Fan controller and populated all available fan slots for Fan. Connected 2 fans having 1700 RPM (advertised speed) and another 2 fans with 2200 RPM tested speed. To Power ON the Controller, I connected the SATA power connector.
During testing, the fan controller displays information on all way LCDs of relevant fan along with Temperature in Celsius. During all this testing it showing temperature of 22C – 23C. I didn’t lower speed of any fan and let it running at full speed.
You definitely want to see the color feature that REEVEN offering on Four Eyes controller and it won’t be over without showcasing them. I took colors that are most accurately visible on Camera. or that photographed well.
For the display Four Eyes Touch Fan controller is stylish product. It definitely the only controller which offering touch and color features. But this is one quality presentation of what you really need in your systems. Four Eyes fan controller
- Touch Screen Panel
- 7 different color Switches
- Decent build quality
- Four Fan supported
- Competitive Price
- No cover at top
Start off with quality. I found its build quality not that great as I was expecting. However, a decent build to say the least. The front frame is matte black and not easily moveable at all. The front LCD is strictly screwed inside so to avoid any disruption. The connectors are built with solid base. I plugged in and out fans to verify the substantial work thrice and didn’t see any movement on metals on connectors in mentioned tries. As for touch response i found it delays to about 2 seconds. Overall the product for the showcase and usability is very good.
This fan controller is fully digital and more importantly offering users a touch base system which allows users to operate essential with finger touch. On the other hand, it may not be desirable for those who have contrasting taste. Four Eyes Fan Controller does support 7 color switch. And why even Reeven added that many colors in queue? Well, the only answer is theme and preferences. If you’re really fond of dark colors and want to look your front like more devilish look, you can check color with RED. In addition, if the overall theme of your rig is Red then it adds additional support to it. Other color switches are Blue, purple, yellow, Green and couple more. One possible lacking if i could point is top enclosure. Controller is not fully enclosed from top. but it really don’t matter when you have to install the Device in Chassis. Only Working and front layout is matter the most.
Finally, it won’t go over without discussing on price. Four Eyes Touch Fan Controller is retailing at $44.99 and $49.95 respectively. Price would be higher or unjustifiable when it don’t has to offer several effective features. Of course Four Eyes controller carrying set of features which cannot be ignorable. It offering’s almost as many features as any good controller does. I will surely recommend it to Enthusiasts’
