interesting bit of contraption -- that might actually be a good idea for my computer since: 1) i have generic case fans; 2) the 'puter runs 24/7; 3) when i'm asleep, i feel like a turbine engine is in my room :D

[ e d i t]

eek! if i can only pass the horror of its price ($30 bucks?!) then i'm sooo buying that...

Gid.  Did you by any chance tried to measure how much voltage the pyramid supplies the fan at, let's say, maximum and/or minimum temps?  I want to know if it can supply the fan the full 12v, as compared to those common L317T therm control circuits (which maxes out at around 10.2v or something).

CON:
They are Bloo.

Ok now take one and mod it to another color...

I think they would look good in a clear case but would be missed on anyother case.

Do you get cycling?  As in fans spin up, fans go down, fans spin up, fans go down, over and over again without you changing anything?  It seems like that may be a problem.

yup, that was the main sellin point that it'll do all that by itself as soon as it senses a temperature change.

Let me rephrase that... Is the cycling more annoying than the fans are normally?  I for one would be more distracted by a slow throb than a slightly elevated volume.  Maybe a less sensitive thermistor would find the point between where the fans were going full speed and very slow.
