Nice idea, but I don't care for another hybrid PCB fan controller. It's totally possible to build a system without the need for a fan controller these days, most of them generate a lot of heat...

Hey Psi, thanks for the find! Always interesting to read up on how others set up and perform their metric testing given there's multiple ways to go about it.

I'd definitely suggest ASRock over Biostar! The processor depends on your budget range, but you'll be wanting to invest most of the system cost into your GPU if you're a gamer!

Really hope they can make a genuine sequel...
