BitFenix Hydra Pro Fan Controller Review

Introduction and Technical Specification

 BitFenix Hydra Pro Fan Controller Review



We can't really think of BitFenix as being the new kids on the block anymore.  Although they've not not actually been around that long, they have brought more than a few products to market, some of which can be considered classics.  For a manufacturer to enter such a competitive market place and stamp their mark is quite an achievement, and keep following up good products with more good products takes more than luck.  With the Hydra Pro BitFenix are aiming squarely at the no frills end of the fan controller customer base.  But in doing so, have they cut back on quality or features.  I guess we'd better have a closer look and find out.

I have one of those. Cheap, simple and sturdy enough. I've used it for a moth or so. No problems, works as advertised.Quote

Looks good to me - I was in the market for a fan controller with at least 4x 20w channels. I ended up getting the Lamptron touch which I really like but it is nice to have more alternatives and this looks good at a much lower price.Quote
