AeroCool Touch-2000 Introduction
As their name implies, AeroCool makes a wide array of cooling products for PC’s as well as cases, power supplies and other accessories. I’ve recently had the opportunity to spend some time with their newest fan controller and temperature display panel designated as the AeroCool Touch-2000 (EN55345). It can be found at retailers for around $53.99 and in this article I’ll break down the performance and features to determine if this is a good value.

Out of the box, I noticed the Touch-2000’s screen was covered with a clear protective film to keep the display scratch free and it peeled right off to show that it was indeed free of defects.
