BitFenix Hydra Pro Fan Controller Review
Peter Donnell+ / 2 years ago
Today we are taking a look at the Hydra Pro Fan Controller from BitFenix, a simple looking device that offers an almost no frills approach to fan control, but one that we hope will combine simplicity with effectiveness in our tests.
BitFenix have been in the spotlight recently thanks to the launch of their very popular M-ITX chassis, the BitFenix Prodigy and many of the builds we are seeing online are looking at the other BitFenix product ranges such as their fans and fan controllers and fitting them into this chassis, so I thought I would take a look at what all the fuss is about and see just how good, or of course not so good the Hydra actually looks and performs inside both this chassis and of course how it performs in general.
BitFenix say themselves that they have an aim to combine superior design with the latest advances in technology, something that really shines through in a lot of their product range and it’s a trend I hope continues in this review.
“Users shouldn’t have to adjust themselves to the way their hardware works. So, we strive to put the user in complete control of his hardware, so that it functions as an extension of his will, and not as another variable he has to compensate for.
In the heat of battle, the user should not have to worry about the state of his equipment, which is why BitFenix products are engineered to perform under even the most extreme conditions. No matter how taxing the situation, users can rely on the strength of BitFenix products to perform as they are intended.” - Bitfenix.com
