Hey all, check this out...

I like the remote start and the little LCD screens, but only one fan controller. Anyone know of something like this but with more fan controllers?

Such low-cost remote control circuits are usuallly somewhat non-descriminating, and spurious signals can activate the remote.

I would consider it risky to have my computer activated or reset by a wireless device such as this. A nearby signal could easily cause a problem.

It is also possible that in the case of the VERY noisy RF environment we find in computers, that the computer itself may cause unpredictable operation. I have run into a situation where a remote-controlled light, using what is likely a similar RF control system, was constantly being turned on and off whenever a CD player in the room was playing a CD. (I've verified CD players also generate higher than normal RF interference across a broad RF spectrum)

Nice nice. I'm not a big fan of 5.25 bay bling though... I like to keep it simple and clean. :cool:

Good point. I hadn't even thought about that. I was just looking at it like,"man, that's so cool!"

Oh yeah, and that's pretty awesome Phil, but I think that's overkill for me! That's like having an Escalade with 24s and a Playstation 2/DVD player with LCD screens on the headrests, and all the stuff like that for a computer!

Hey all once again. I finally decided on the Zalman ZM-MFC1. It's nice. The lights are pretty bright, but then again... so is the rest of my case. It's pretty awesome. You can see the pics in my album on photobucket...
