We take a close look at VL System's L.I.S 2 Blue eye, to find out how this middle-segment LCD performs. It can display anything from fan RPM and current time all the way to CPU temperature and voltages, it can even control up to 4 fans. Have you ever caught yourself wondering what time it is in the middle of a frag fest, and couldn't risk switching back to desktop? Do you own a modded case and attend LAN Parties regularly? Then this might just be the unit you are after...

I almost got the black version of this fan controller recently but I decided not to because from what it seemed, you couldn't control your fan speeds until you were logged into Windows. Is this true?

Yes, this is true. The unit has no "brain" of its own, it is dependant on the Windows software, so when you boot up, all fans spin at maximum, and after the software starts, the unit slows down the fan speed according to what you have set up in the software.
