I was reminded due to the recent winter storm that the ability to control the temperature in your area is one of the greatest inventions ever. This is especially true when it comes to machines that are affected by temperature, but often that control comes with lots of additional noise. The new Aerocool CoolTouch-E and CoolTouch-R will help you choose between which is the most important for your PC at the time.
The CoolTouch-E and CoolTouch-R puts control for all your PC case fans at your fingertips via a 100 x 25 mm touch screen display. Easy to read, easy to use, and easy to control, these fan controllers will give you temperature control and look sexy doing it. And if you need a little something extra, the CoolTouch-R comes with a USB 3.0 port and a multi-card reader that supports all the current standards.
Aerocool’s two new fan controllers should be great additions to any case. You can even match the display to fit your other lights (background colors in red, green, yellow, blue, light blue, purple and white). Both of these items are available today at $36.99 for the CoolTouch-E and $49.99 for the CoolTouch-R. You can find out more below. And on a personal note, never move during winter.
Aerocool CoolTouch-E & CoolTouch-R: Release of two touch-screen fan controller
01-31-2014 – Aerocool Advanced Technologies, one of world’s leading manufacturers of excellent gaming PC gear, announces two new single-bay fan controller CoolTouch-E and CoolTouch-R. Both of Aerocool’s new fan controller are utilizing a touch-panel. Hence allows users to directly interact with the display to make adjustments and changes more naturally. Up to four case fans can be connected to the back side of the CoolTouch fan controller, while all important information are presented well sorted on the display in the front. To match most on-market PC chassis, CoolTouch-E and CoolTouch-R are available as a black and white edition.
Aerocool brings the trend of touch-screens to the PC for an affordable price. All interactions with the new CoolTouch fan controller are made by simply pressing on the designated area on the touch-screen. To match the individual environment and taste, users can change the background-color of the LCD touch-panel anytime by pressing the “color” button. Both CoolTouch-E and CoolTouch-R offer the choice between the background-colors red, green, yellow, blue, light blue, purple and white.
The CoolTouch-E is equipped with a big 100 x 25 mm display, which covers most of the fan controller’s front panel. Each of the four case fan channels can be controlled individually by choosing the preferred channel and then adjusting the fan speed in steps between 0, 50, 75 and 100 percent. Each channel supports fans with a consumption of up to 20 watts. The CoolTouch-E indicates weather a fan is spinning or not and allows users to stop fans by pressing the power button. All common types of fan connectors are supported by the CoolTouch series, including the standard 3-pin and 4-Pin PWM as well as 4-pin Molex connectors.
Aerocool CoolTouch-R combines great usability with additional functions and connectivity in a compact single-bay design! It utilizes a slightly smaller 85 x 25 mm LCD display with touch-support and offers additional functions! Besides the four case fan channels, one temperature sensor has been integrated. Hence allows users to monitor the temperature of the CPU Cooler, HDD, Chipset, VGA card or the temperature inside the chassis. The sensor can be placed anywhere inside the PC chassis using the supplied adhesive stickers. Temperatures can be displayed both in Celsius and Fahrenheit. Great connectivity is assured thanks to the built-in card-reader and the USB 3.0 port, located on the right side of the panel. Most common storage media types such as SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC/RS MMC and miniSD are supported by the card reader.
Both of the CoolTouch fan controller are available as of today. Suggested retail price for the CoolTouch-E model is 24.50 EUR and 32.50 EUR for the CoolTouch-R (excl. Taxes).
