One of the common complaints of many budget computer cases from users is the lack of a fan controller. Normally, an enthusiast must step into the $100+ category to get a chassis with any sort of built-in fan controls. Sure, a 3.5 or 5.25 bay device could do the trick, but with optical drives (and the associated bays) becoming less and less common this isn’t always a viable option. Enter NZXT and the GRID+ V2 digital fan controller.

It only makes sense something like this would come from NZXT; they were one of the first manufacturers to forgo external drive bays entirely. The NZXT Grid+ V2 is a voltage regulated, 30W digital fan controller that fits in practically any case (it’s about the size of two SSDs stacked on top of each other) and adds digital fan control capability for up to eight fans across six separate channels. Join Benchmark Reviews as we take a quick look at the capabilities NZXT’s GRID+ V2 digital fan controller will bring to your build. Will NZXT’s reputation for innovation pull through, or will the GRID+ need a V3?

GRID+ V2 combines intuitive software and variable installation options to provide a simple, unintrusive solution for digital fan control. With CAM support, the GRID+ V2 allows you to name your fans and adjust your fan speeds easily using versatile preset or custom fan profiles.

Now with individually controlled channels and up to 30 watts total output, the GRID+ V2 allows you to control six separate fan channels. Using CAM, users can set and create independent profiles for each fan.

Following in the footsteps of the NZXT GRID, the GRID+V2 can be installed in any discreet location, making cable management a breeze.
