AeroCool rolled out black colored variants of its CoolTouch-R and CoolTouch-E fan-controllers (pictured in that order). The two feature thick ABS bodies with a matte black finish. The CoolTouch-R is the more feature-rich of the two, and features a card-reader in addition to the fan-controller panel. It can control four independent fan channels, supplying them with up to 20W of power each. In addition to arbitrary control, it offers three speed presets, and can completely shut off specific channels. It also features a case temperature display in both °C and °F scales. You can choose between 7 colors on the display. The card-reader supports SD, MMC, and TF cards. Also present is a USB 3.0 port. The card reader component hence connects to the motherboard over a standard USB 3.0 header. The CoolTouch-E lacks the card reader component, but features everything else carried over from the CoolTouch-R.
