EnvyNews has a few things for us today. First they look
at the Vantec Nexus NXP-205-SL...
Tired of the screaming of fans in your case, but you do not have any spare
5.25-inch bays free for a rheobus fan controller? Vantec introduces the Nexus
NXP-205 - available in silver or black - which slides into a 3.5-inch case bay
and performs the duty of a 5.25-inch just as well if not better. With their
trademark blue dial glow, the NXP-205 can even handle their ultra-loud and power-eating
Vantec Tornado fan which most of the larger controllers can not even touch!
Then they look at the bigger
brother in the NXP-301.
Vantec is a name which is becoming synonymous with Rheobus fan controller
and fan products. We have all seen a barrage of Vantec product reviews including
here on Envy News, and today we present you with one of their crown jewels -
the NXP-301. This 5.25-inch bay product is more than just a fan controller.
It also includes a sound-control component for the two bundled cold-cathode
florescent lamps (CCFL), allowing you to control fan speeds, CCFL brightness,
and CCFL audio-response. Also included in this review are Vantecs Spectrum
Cold cathode lamp kits.
