Almost everyone in
the modification scene uses some kind of fan control on his or her PC,
usually in the form of a rheobus or something similar.
Unfortunately, these devices are just too simple to be effective
in some situations. Today we will
be taking a look at something that
was nice enough to send over, the DigitalDoc5 by Macpower Peripherals.
Basically, the DD5 is a
device that sits inside a 5.25" bay and monitors temperatures, fan
speeds, and voltages. It can also adjust fans using information
provided by the temperature probes. This is useful for applications
where the fan only needs to run when the temperature exceeds a certain
Here is a quick
rundown of the features:
Support for large fans up to 12 Watts
Monitors temps from 0 to 100 degrees Celsius
Monitors +5 and +12 lines and can warn of voltage problems
Saves settings on a EEPROM chip, so you donít ever have to reenter
Installs in a 5.25Ē bay opening
Easy override settings for fans and alarms
crack this nut open.
