    Scythe unveiled its groovy new Kaze Chrono fan controller (model: KM07-BK). Its head unit, which is designed for 5.25-inch drive bays, is characterized by a large LCD panel with a brick-matrix, similar to Tetris handhelds, which can display fan-speed of its various channels, temperature, or simply work as a clock. As a controller, it draws power from a 4-pin Berg connector, giving out four 3-pin fan headers. Speed is controlled by selecting a channel, and holding down the + or - buttons. Its mode can be switched between fan control, temperature monitoring, clock, and display-off. The controller can detect a stopped or failing fan, and flash an alarm. Measuring 148.5 x 83 x 42 mm, it weighs about 165 g. Scythe is expected to begin shipping the Kaze Chrono sometime in July. In Japan, it is expected to go for 3,980¥ (US $40).

    You didn't understand Rcoon's statement. Yes it is ugly... but kinda neat. Those pixels are huge! I hope it has a dimmer.
