With the release of each generation of new hardware there comes new issues with cooling. In order to keep our computers cool we add fans, and each fan we add tends to increase the noise level. This is a vicious cycle. To help lower the noise, and keep your computer cool, there are many fan controllers on the market that attempt to achieve the perfect balance between noise level and cooling ability. Today, I will be looking at a new device by Sunbeamtech, the Chromatic Windmill, a full function fan controller capable of controlling up to seven fans and monitoring three different temperature probes!

Opening the box you will find the Chromatic Windmill is packed between two fitted foam blocks that help keep it stable, and absorb any shocks from shipment. To help keep it looking nice, they have also placed the unit in a plastic bag. All of the accessories are wrapped in a separate bag placed in the back of the box.
