    I am not impressed. Even on Silverstone product page, the make it sound like it can control 3 lamps. Not just power them, which IMO is useless. So I bought a product thinking it does somthing when in fact it doesn't. Not impressed at all.

    Seems fairly pointless to me. Little gain for the outlay.

    Seems like an OK product, the fact that it limits itself to Nvidia chipsets my be a huge downfall tho!

    The idea is to be able to control the fans lights and temps through Nvidias ESA program..

    http://www.nvidia.com/object/nvidia_esa.html

    There isant a lot of ESA hardware yet but if more shows up it would be really cool to have the cooling automatically adjust.

    (the 1 thing I dont care for is the .5A per fan spec, wont allow high speed fans)

    It doesn't allow control of the lights though.
