    Japanese cooling expert Scythe announcing the availability of the successor of popular Kaze Master 5,25 fan controller. Over the time collected customer and media feedback was used to develop Kaze Master II. Second version now combines new technology and improvements to provide an even more intelligent fan controller.

    Kaze Master II fan controller fits common 5.25 inch PC case bays and allows users to control up to 4 fans individually as well as monitoring of up to 4 temperature sensors. Fan speed is being adjusted using potentiometer knobs in the front panel. It is furthermore possible to slide-in the knobs to hide them after fan speed has been adjusted. Hence allows a very flat front-panel design, making Kaze Master II very suitable for pc chassis with front doors.

    Wide voltage regulation range from 3.7 to 12 volts has been adopted from the earlier model, allowing more room for fan speed and airflow optimizations inside the PC Chassis. In addition difficulties with not spinning up fans have been solved. Kaze Master II supplies all fans with a stable 12 Volts Spin Up Voltage at the startup. After a short spin up period, previously set voltage will be applied.

    Actual fan speed and temperature values of the 4 channels are displayed on the VF-Display (Vacuum Fluorescent Display). Temperature values can be displayed both in degrees Celsius or degrees Fahrenheit. Supported temperature range is specified between 0 and 100°C or 32 and 199.9°F.

    Further new technological improvements have been applied to the safety features. Kaze Master II fan controller gives users the option to set an individual alarm temperature . It is possible to set the alarm temperature in 5°C or 41°F steps from 55 to 90°C respectively from 131 to 194°F. Reaching of the set temperature would result in a visual and audio alarm by the Kaze Master II fan controller.

    Kaze Master II fan controller is furthermore featuring the new Power Feed Control function. This safety mechanism monitors the fan speed of each channel. In case one of the fans stops spinning (possible malfunction), Kaze Master II will cut the power after 15 seconds. All relevant information in regards to safety mechanisms is explained in detailed in the supplied multilingual user manual.

    Scythe Kaze Master II fan controller (Model No. KM05-BK) is available in black color as of today for 33 EUR (excl. VAT/TAX).

    Are the cable extensions included? None of the numerous fans I posses have cables long enough to reach the front panel.

    It's in stock at Newegg by now but can't find any reviews yet. Curious how the screen quality compares to the first one.
