It’s been a long time since I reviewed any Scythe products, from what I recall they do make some great products so there’s no reason no to expect their latest one any different. Scythe has just announced the Kaze Master Flat II which is a multifunction fan controller that can also monitor temperatures and supports 3 and 4 pin style fans. More details below for you..

Japanese cooling-expert Scythe is hereby announcing the successor of the Kaze Master Flat. The new version is using the classic design of the predecessor but omits the Protective Display Cover and replaces it with a solid front-panel with decently implemented buttons, offering users a clean appearance and fast access.

The big Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) covers most of the front-panel space and provides great overview of values that matter. Total of four touch-sensitive buttons are located in the corners, giving access to all the main functions of the Kaze Master Flat II fan-controller. The buttons on the right side allow users to adjust the fan speed in the range from 0 to 9.999 RPM, depending on the connected fan. Fan speed is adjusted by changing the input-voltage between 3,7 and 12 volts, as it has been done with other Scythe fan-controllers in the past. Each fan channel supports regular 3-pin and 4-pin PWM fans. Total consumption per channel has been tripled to 3 ampere (36 watts).

Each of the four temperature channels supports measurement from 0 to 100 degree Celsius and 32 to 199,9 degree Fahrenheit. Switching the jumper on the rear side of the fan-controller allows users to choose between the two measurement units. In case of failure of a connected fan or reaching the set temperature limit, the alarm function will kick in. Pressing the button on lower left corner will shut down the alarm. Desired temperature limit can be set from 50 to 90 degree Celsius (131 to 194° Fahrenheit) in 5-degree steps using the dip-switch.

Switching between modes, channels and functions is possible by using the “mode” button in the upper left corner. Similar to the predecessor, new Kaze Master Flat II fits perfectly into a vacant 5,25 inch- (13,34 cm) bay of the PC chassis. The height of the new display has been increased by 4 mm to 20 x 118 mm (0,79 x 4,65 inch) to show the fan speed and temperature of each channel clearer.

Scythe followed the customer wishes and supplies the Kaze Master Flat II with professionally sleeved fan and sensor cables. Scope of delivery incudes the multi-lingual manual, mounting screws and adhesive tape.

Kaze Master Flat II fan controller (model no. KM08-BK) is available as of today for 26,00 EUR from retails and etailers (excluding Taxes).
