In Win introduced the wackiest (and possibly the smartest) case fan we've seen at Computex this year, the Aurora. This is the first fan to support wireless remote control. It's also the first fan to support multi-unit daisy-chaining, so one fan's power input and control can be shared with multiple fans. This way, you can control each of your multiple liquid cooling radiators by simply pointing the remote at them.

As simply a fan, the Aurora is a 120 mm spinner, with 800 to 1,400 RPM speeds in PWM mode, and 2,000 RPM in high-voltage mode (12V). At 1,400 RPM, it can push 40.26 CFM of air, with a noise output of 23.7 dBA. The remote allows you to fine tune fan-speed (within the PWM speed range), set and switch between presets, and control the lighting. Each fan features two 6-pin power ports, with which you can daisy-chain multiple fans. Each fan ships with a connector.

Yeah, but how do I daisy-chain them in a 3x3 array on a big radiator?
I don't think the designers thought that far ahead. This should do fine for n*1 arrays as long as there's enough voltage to go around.

How is that airflow/dB ratio? I have no idea what is good these days.

But I actually like this! I would probably prefer fans with software so you could set fan curves and so on, but this is pretty nice too.

Brilliant! Novel Idea even!

The only sad problem is if you want to control both sides (push/pull config) of a radiator separate or even have 2 or more radiators you want separate controls on each, that would a lot of remotes to keep track of.

It's a nice thought but I only see this working on a fan set that is accessible/visible from the outside of the case.



Does a remote ship with each fan too? That could get expensive fast.
