ZXMODS ONLINE STORE PROFILE
After "BlueMax" was created, ZXMods was dreamed up to share modding techniques and offer products in an effort to promote the Personal Computer experience to a more satisfying level. Each modding project will be documented and offered to the public in the "Projects" section of this site. Modding supplies will be offered in conjunction with the projects. Oh, and in time, the world will come to know I am an AMD kind o' guy! ZXMod's flagship product is the Custom laser jet cut fan grills. ZXMod's has design service available for a reasonable cost. Stay tuned as new designs are created. ZXMod's second custom product is the Cold Cathode Kits with color matching heatshrinks. These particular kits improve upon existing market cold cathode kits with breathability in critical areas and compactness. ZXMod's third custom product is the unique CoolRadVidSinks which are highly effective for cooling the video ram chips at overclocked speeds. While being a highly effective product, these look absolutely so cool when seen through a plexiglass window.
Now seeing that you are reader of Tweaknews.net, I would have to say that you have at least 1-2 case fans in your system right now. With that assumption, most of the elite computer users of today are using multiple fans in their systems and because of that reason, computers of today have been getting noisier and noisier. One way you could control the noise is to throttle down your fans manually using a rheobus like the one I reviewed HERE. But what if I could introduce you to a product that would make you fan speed and system temperature control easier by having a small device control the speed of you case fans by monitoring your computer case temperature and adjusting the fans accordingly. Well, with the "PYRAMID I" mounted and installed properly, your prayers have been answered. Let's take a quick tour of what this product will bring to your workstation...
Here is a little snippet from www.cobalt3.com who manufacture this little beauty...
"Due to its cool design and lighting feature, the Pyramid I is one of our popular models for lightly modified computer cases. With all the abilities and features of the L model, this pyramid extends it with an additional visual alarm feature and using and adapter on the standard 3 pin connection (connects to your motherboard) it can also connect to 4 pin fans. So silence your existing fans and give your case some cool lighting on the inside!"
With the purchase of this little device you will get the following:
You will receive everything to control about 2- 3 pin molex connector case fans, the sensor itself and a setup manual.
