    Lamptron is trying to find its new niche. They’re a company known mainly for their fan controllers – something that’s seldom used anymore, because most motherboards have fan headers now, and t...

    Great review. I was wondering if it is possible to connect even 2 of these in order to display different set of data: one for CPU and one for GPU, for instance? Thanks!

    Not my review, Chris wrote this one. I have a little more workspace which I refer to as organized chaos :)

    it look like mine before the little boy, every thing that can be destroyed or throwable have to be hidden fom his hand. :)
    On mine there was less computer but car's gearboxes, half moded HIFI opened in wait of component etc etc...
    and yes it was organized (all in one room to not use the whole house lol)

    Thx for showing this product. I am very interested in it, but...
    There is no information if it works with a DP to HDMI adapter, since a lot of cards only have 1 hdmi port which could already be in use.
    Second problem is that cards like the 5700(XT) does draw additional 30-40 Watts on idle when using more than one display (even if only the cable is pluged in). Which is way too much for just monitoring.
    So it would be nice if you can give a feedback to Lamptron that a version with USB(C)-related data input would be the better deal.
    Actually I am using a Samsung digital photo frame like the SPF-107H and a community written driver to do a hardware monitoring in an energy saving way without using the gpu. Sadly it seems that I have to stick with this (buggy) solution.

    Looks and feels like my Goverlay External USB-Display... maybe a tad snappier, but i have all the info i need in almost realtime, without the need for a seperate display output and it´s highly configurable. Hooked it up to my APC UPS via SIV64X and have live Power-Draw, Weather, CPU-, RAM- and GPU-Usage, Networking Load + HDD-Temperatures, all on a 3,5" Display

    I did not see a price, you can pick up a 10" 1920x1200 60hz ips that has a proper stand and a touch screen for around £100.... i think i`d go that route because the last Lamptron product i had a few years ago was a 6 way fan controller and it was complete garbage.

    Lamptron fan controllers not sure, I have tried only one which has trouble to run more than 3 BeQuiet Silent Wings 3 on one header

    If fan controller then Aquacomputer Quadro, Octa or Aquaero are my choices or I use on my builds

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Hi, i had the Lamptron FC2 5.25" Bay 6-channel Fan Controller, 45 Watt Per Channel, even though it could accommodate for 6 fans @45watts per channel the most fans it could run at 1000rpm was 2....any more and all channels were reduced to barely running even with the molex power connected......that was last time i used a separate fan controller......6 years ago when i switched from full water cooling to aio.
