Super Flower Fan Master SF-609

Monitoring temperatures and allowing the user to adjust the fan speed pretty much sums up the function of most fan controllers on the market. The only way manufacturers manage to separate themselves from the rest of the crowd is with looks - and I can certainly attest to seeing some wacky designs over the past few years.
Around the back of the SF-609 we have headers for four 3-pin fans, a single floppy connector for power and an array of 6 pins for use with the included thermal probes.
Not much can really be said about the installation of the SF-609 as it is pretty much fool proof. Simply connect your fan cables to the back of the unit, place the thermal probes in positions on around your PC where they are needed and install the screen in the same way as you would a CD-ROM drive or other 5.25" device.
• T Button: Toggles between the four temperature sensors (CPU, Hard Disk, Case & Power Supply).
• F Button: Toggles the RPM readout from each of the four fan headers on the unit.
• C Button: Changes the screen colour. 6 colour modes, Auto mode (changes colour every 3 seconds) and Off.
• T + C Buttons: Clear all custom settings and return unit back to manufacturers defaults.
• T + F Buttons: Adjust alarm temperature of the four sensors. This setting is saved in the device even after power failure.
• Fan Knobs: Turn clockwise or anti-clockwise to increase or decrease the speed of the fans. With the knob turned fully to the left the voltage output is ~6.0v, fully to the right gives ~12.0v.
