Today we're taking a look at the multifunction case fan from thermaltake the Smart case fan 2.
The Thermaltake Smart case fan 2 features 3 different ways to use it:
Function one allows you to run the fan at full speed 75.7 CFM!
Function two controls the fan by way of a thermal sensor probe placed under the CPU. This way, the hotter the CPU the faster the fan spins. This allows the fan to run silently for the majority of the time.
Function three controls the fan by a small rheostat so you can manually adjust the fan speed from spinning at 1300 rpm and 20.5 CFM to 4800 rpm and 75.7 CFM.

75.7 CFM at 4800 rpm
Air Pressure 1.45mmH2O at 1300rpm
8.43mmH2O at 4800rpm
Noise 17 dB at 1300 rpm
48 dB at 4800 rpm

To test the smart case fan 2 we will pair it up with a thermalright slk-800 heatsink.
To calculate the idle temperatures, I gave each setting 10 minutes before recording the temperature down.
Next, using Sandra burn in wizard I allowed it to run 30 minutes on each setting.
As you can see from the results the Smart case fan 2 works best on a medium or high setting.
The fan can be adjusted conveniently from full power to a quieter setting as needed.
