If you’ve got yourself a tripped out PC that’s overclocked six ways from Sunday, then you’re probably just as concerned with keeping the system cool, as you are with its benchmark scores. So installing something like this Zalman Multi Fan Controller in one of your drive bays is probably not a bad idea.
The easy to read LCD display allows you to monitor the system’s power load, either numerically or with a segmented bar graph and will also alert you when the load surpasses 800W. More importantly the ZM-MFC2 can be used to monitor the temperature readings from up to 4 different sensors, with a range of -9 to 99 degrees Celsius. It also shows the current status of up to 4 different cooling fans, providing info on their current RPM and an audible alarm should any of them fail. You’ll also notice a large jog wheel that can be used for adjusting the RPM of each fan, from 1000 to 5940RPM in increments of 60RPM.
You can find it at Newegg.com for $54.99.
