👤I received my unit today. Installation and unboxing was easy. The fit and finish of the unit are nice. Fans run quietly, and move enough air to bring the temperature down to 15 degrees F in about 5 minutes. Air flow is back to front. That's not the issue. This is not stated in these terms anywhere. The statement that the fans exhaust hot air is the closest allusion to this configuration. Considering the location of the fans, one must consider what that means. A reverse mode would be nice, but high-flow low-noise fans like this are almost universally designed with directional blades. It isn't surprising that no feature is included. I'll have to disassemble the entire unit and re-mount the fans in order to have enough air for my application. All of the components in my system have front-to-back air flow, and the rack enclosure has an exhaust fan on the back side. It would be counter-productive to have this unit move air in the other direction. Again, the T7 is great, just make sure back to front is what you want, or be prepared to make some modifications.
👤The AC Infinity was replaced with the ProCool SP480XT-E. ProCool is barely audible in full speed and moves slightly less air than in CFM. It is in a rack, so that doesn't really matter. The noise in my home office is what matters. I donated the AC. It seems like a quality piece of equipment. This is the loudest fan noise I have in my rack. The sound is only annoying when there are other sounds going on. In a quiet room, it's not a big deal. The noise from the fan is very annoying. Replacing the noisy fans with Noctua is very difficult because of the proprietary setup of AC Infinity. Replacing the fans will void the warranty, but it's either that or chuck it out. Before surgery on the device, I'm looking for a replacement.
👤I chose this one because I didn't want the temp sensor to be on all the time or have to remember to turn it on, the space for my receiver is small, and the fan kept the unit at 80 degrees without a problem. After looking at the noise problem with this one, I decided to use the other one.
👤It was easy to install. I have a rack in an open and light controlled space so I appreciate the fact that the front screen only lights up when I touch the controls. I use the "AUTO" and "SMART" modes when I'm active. I use the SMART setting to help reduce fan noise when using my A/V gear and gaming consoles. If my sound system is turned on for movie watching, I use the AUTO setting, fans only turn on at a set temperature threshold, but can be quite loud. The controls have a little back light. I use a light built into the rack to see buttons that are not backlit. The thing works well at removing warm air from behind my equipment rack. I was in the 80's before. I can keep the temp at 72 degrees. I'm not a fan of the price but it's a lot cheaper than having my gear overheated.
Each set of metal wire baskets has 3 baskets. One of the sizes is 15.7" W x 7.4" L x 6. To clean, use a damp cloth and towel. An intelligent fan system is designed for cooling equipment.

Premium anodized aluminum construction has a professional appearance. 3U rack space, design, exhaust, airflow, noise, and bearings are included.
👤I should have bought a 3U blank plate, bought more multifan s3 from the same maker and built my own rack system. The thing was supposed to be quiet, but it has grown louder and louder. The three multi fan s3 units at full speed sound the same loud as the one at speed level 1. It was still a lot louder when this was brand new. The amount of air pushed is the same or better with the s3 fans. This one has not seen a hundred hours of use and is starting to whine. It's rated for thousands of hours of use before needing maintenance. I'm considering taking out the fans and replacing them with some of the multi fan units from the same maker. I need to figure out which fans will fit. I spent over a hundred and thirty on these and could have spent more on my other idea. The fan controller I bought works great.
👤With 6 speeds, I got a larger T9 unit at a rack height of 5 to be able to run the lowest speeds and still move a lot of air. In a silent room at fan speed 2 you can still hear a hollow whistle type sound of the motor, but it would be hard to notice it if you were sitting next to it. My fan is mounted in a rack in the wall between the media room and the equipment room for easy access. The projector is above the fan unit and heating the small equipment room. My seating is 10 feet away from the noise so it's not an issue until you get to fan speeds 3-6 and 6 being full roar. I would think that level 6 would be quite unusual. The fan control can be adjusted in a number of ways. In my case the projector heat is trapped in the top corner of the room so I am going to first try a portable A/C exhaust hose and mounting flange stuck to the back of one of the 3 fans and see if I can more effectively cool the space. The probe is on a long cable so you can place it most anywhere. It seems to work well. If the hose idea fails, it can control another fan unit.
👤This is in the top cut out of my component rack. Works well. The build quality is very good. Since it is sitting on the top of the rack, you need to be aware of the slight hum that it makes. I would like to see AC Infinity work with Noctua to develop a silent fan. If you are used to working in server rooms and playing music close to the rack, it won't be a big deal. The auto setting is good at turning the fans down. The unit seems to be doing a good job of pulling out hot air in the Sanus Rack.
👤The product looks sexy and the built in thermostat is great. When I unboxed it, I was excited that it would be installed in my server rack. The excitement ended when I flipped on the fans. The fan speed specification is 0-7 and only 0-3 is quiet. At 4, it starts to whistle and you can hear the whistle as you go up. I can't hear them in the room they are in. I will keep it. It's not going to fulfill what I had in mind. Maybe I had my hopes set high.
Size: 1U rack space, design, exhaust, airflow, noise, 8 to 28 dBA, bearings, dual ball An intelligent fan system is designed for cooling equipment. Protects rack-mount equipment from overheating. The thermostat controller has a backup memory. Premium anodized aluminum construction has a professional appearance. Size: 1U rack space, design, intake, airflow, noise, and bearings.
👤The programming control features had a "Buffer" implemented when AC Infinity Engineering decided to add hysteresis. The Buffer holds a small number of degrees. The fans will turn on when the temperature reaches a user's setting. Fans turn off when the temperature in the probe drops. The Buffer cannot be set to 0. 0 Buffer is what a user would want when they want to stay as close to a temperature as possible. The 0-Buffer scheme is practical for professional audio equipment. The minimum setting is 2 degrees. The AC Infinite Cloudplate hysteresis implementation is a temperature oscillator with a minimum amplitude of 2 degrees. The temperature could have been much smaller if AC Infinity provided a 0 Buffer. Fans will go on and off more frequently if there is a 0 Buffer. For a maximum fan speed of 1 or 2, there is very little noise produced by the Cloudplate. When a designer knows how to maintain temperature and minimize distortion, one wants temperature to be quelled. If temperature is maintained, distortion can be controlled. The Buffer setting is needed to maintain temperature to less than a degree tolerance. The Cloudplate code should be changed to allow for 0 or near 0 Buffer. This will allow professional and scientific applications. I would use three digits to display the temperature.
👤This is the second AC fan I have purchased. I'm happy to see that feedback from prior years has been incorporated into the options for both intake and exhaust mounting. I had to disassemble my older unit to reverse the fan. The buffer feature helps to avoid rapid on/off cycling that has been experienced in prior models. This doesn't help when using the smart mode as the fan ramps up and down rapidly around a specific temperature regardless of buffer setting. A hysteresis feature would be ideal to ensure a specific time delay between ramp up and ramp down. High pitch bearing noise is still a problem. There are two spikes at all speed settings. They are noticeable to me, but may not be audible to everyone. I would like acoustic baffling or mag-lev fan to help reduce the noise.
👤I wanted to like it. The whole line of products has nice styling and can be used to class up a rack of equipment. I couldn't bear the noise it made, it was for a rack in a home office. I returned it because it was a better option at a lower price. The cool part is that you can still use the AC Infinity thermostat controller unit to control the Noctua. If you get a 5v Noctua fan, make sure you get ausb to3/4pin adapter which is meant for 5v fans. The barrel style power conversion for 12V to pin fans is a must have. Both of these are on Amazon from the same seller. You can control both the 12 barrel output and the 5Vusb output of the AC Thermostat Infinity controller. Some companies still sell ausb up-converter that allows a 12V fan to run on theusb. This will not be adjusted and will run at full speed.
The design of the 1U rack space is top exhaust with 60 to 300 CFM of airflow and 12 to 38 dBA of noise. An intelligent fan system is designed for cooling equipment. Protects rack-mount equipment from overheating. The thermostat controller has a backup memory. Premium anodized aluminum construction has a professional appearance. 3U rack space, design, intake, airflow, noise, and bearings are included.
👤It's a very well made fan panel. The stock fans can put out a lot of air, but they can be a little noisy because of the dual ball bearing fans. If your server rack is in your bedroom, ball bearing fans might not be ideal. This would not be a problem if it was installed in a server room. Thankfully the fans themselves aren't soldered in place but unfortunately they aren't using the standard 3 pin or PWM fan headers that most computer fans use. I couldn't locate a premade one. I found some JST XH connections and made my own from scratch. The built in controls help keep my equipment cool. The temperature sensor is slow at reporting change. I'm happy with it. I would like to see standard fan headers in the next revision. If a fan were to fail, the ease of repair would be even better.
👤I use a fan panel to provide air flow for a few audio power amplifier and PA mixer hardware in a 19 inch rack panel. The fans are quiet and the panel has a digital display for making adjustments. The rack panel has a temperature sensor that can be placed on any surface or component, making it easy to monitor temperature using the digital display. I had gone through 2 other fan panel solutions that were too loud. The brand seems to be quiet.
👤I upgraded my little home theater/VR PC to a powerful graphics card and processor and it was running hot. If the PC case was sitting out in the open, it would get hotter than a firework, so I added more fans and vent to it. I thought it was a unique idea to put fans in the back of the cabinet. I came across the console coolers while researching something I could use as a thermostatic fan control. It was exactly what I wanted to be. When I ordered it, I assumed the fans would be low quality to maximize profit. Installation and setup was easy. The fans that come in this work great and I never replaced the stock fans. You can't hear anything in my living room. The highest setting is loud, but it has never needed to go past the 2nd speed to keep the temp in the 70s. I know I could keep the computer silent and the temperature below 90F if I didn't run it. I should mention that it has a very user-friendly control panal. You can either manually set the speed or you can set it to stay below and it will adjust its speed as necessary. I'm going to buy a second for the other side of my entertainment center because I like this thing so much. This thing gets an A+ from me. The manufacturer should make models with still larger fans. 140mm or even 200mm fans can move more air than the 120mm fans. I'm sure they know this. I'm sure they make the sizes they do because they want all of their products to fit standard 1U, 2U, 3U. There are rack units.
The 1U rack space is 19 x 1.75 x 2. Silent fans. Silent cooling is required in some applications. Good air flow with no noise. The fan controller starts and stops the system at the user defined set point. You can choose from Intake or Exhaust. If needed, fans can be flipped over. Free 2 day shipping and a 3 year warranty built in the USA.
Includes thermal probe, rack mounting screw set, and power wall adapter. An intelligent fan system is designed for cooling equipment. Protects rack-mount equipment from overheating. The thermostat controller has a backup memory. Premium anodized aluminum construction has a professional appearance. The design of the 1U rack space is Front Exhaust with Airflow of 40 to 180 CFM and noise of 9 to 32 dBA.
👤I bought this unit to fit in the rack space over my new Denon AVR, which is very warm. The unit pulls in cool air through the bottom and sides of the AVR and blows it out the front of the rack. The flexibility of programming is one of the best features of this product. I've purchased other AC fans from this company in the past and I'm very familiar with the quality of products they produce. I would recommend this product to anyone. These are quality products and a great value.
👤I use this audio rack for my home theatre stereo system.
👤I am happy to report that the product's dimensions are correct. This is one of the things I worry about when buying a new product, but this one did well. I only have one of these so far, and I don't know if I should buy another one. The fan will take air out of the server rack for you. It will largely depend on your setup and whether or not you have a second fan. If you don't have good air flow, you won't need to have the fan on as high a speed as you would if you did. I hope to update this in the coming months to see how it performs in the long run.
👤When it first came out, I was so happy to have purchased this. The price was a bit lower than it is. The fan is one of the easiest to use in the market today. The benefit it brings to the server rack is what makes the whole system worth it. If you don't circulate the hot air out, the heat inside can get very hot. This is important to prolong the life of your equipment. And the internet. A great find and a great purchase.
👤This is a good piece of equipment. The fans are very quiet, even at max speed, because of the nice build quality. Happy with the purchase.
👤Two of these are running and keeping the rack cool. There were no complaints about the quality and easy setup.
👤Great product. It's good to fit in the rack. I can't hear the noise. Temp control works well, it comes on when needed and shuts off when not needed. Great purchase.
👤A very economical replacement for a noisy fan. My Crestron dealer installed a Middle Atlantic Products fan that had more features. It makes less noise than I expected, even at the highest fan speeds.
👤The space required for the probe and power cables is not included in the total depth of this unit. The unit is listed at 34.3 cm. The rack is only 13 in. In depth. I assumed it would fit. The probe and power cables need an additional 1.5 cm to fit. The unit was too deep for my wall mounted rack. I have to find a way to fit the spacers on the front or cut a hole in the rack that is already fully populated. I haven't been able to get it installed yet, so I can't comment on how it works.
One rack space is 19" x 1.75" Silent Fans with advanced blade design can produce good air flow. Airflow is 18 CFM. Free 2 day shipping and a 3 year warranty built in the USA.
👤I loved the fact that these fans have a vent in the front or rear of the rack, unlike other fans on Amazon, which have a vent in the back of the rack. In a smaller, already fully enclosed rack those types have no value. It was easy to pull the cooler air from outside, run it through the case and out the top.
Size: 1U rack space, design, intake, airflow, noise, and bearings. The temperature control helps ensure optimal performance for rackmount. The cooling system can be used for a quiet office. The compact design takes up only 1 unit of space. A simple and easy to use display allows the user to control the temperature. The fan has a top exhaust system.
👤The seller got 5 stars. The item does what it was made to do. There are pros and cons. Solid metal construction has some weight. Four cooling fans move a lot of air. The cheap control display panel is a cons. There are vague instructions. Quality control is questionable. This is a decent product for what you pay and the value for the money. Solid all metal construction with fans that move air. The display is very visible and the temperature sensor is very sensitive. Comparable products cost a little more without the temperature control feature. The item didn't work out of the box. The seller was sending a replacement the next day after I email them. No questions were asked during the process. Rebecca compensated me for my time, even though I only wanted a working replacement. A good customer service and a decent rack fan. The seller is behind their product. Thanks to sellers like Amazon.
👤Three of the four cage nuts and bolts on the cooler were broken. There was a cage nut in the cooler. After opening the cooler one of the wires might have broken. One of the fins was bent. The box sagged after installation. The wire was soldered. I used some of the cage nuts from my rack to fix the top cover. I used pliers to fix the bent fin. There were no tears, dents, or corners in the packaging. The nut on the inside was moving as soon as I picked it up. I assume they sent it like this because it was bad. It was not an option to wait for another repair. It seems ok. It works as expected. It does feel cheap. This was way over the line, however, I am very forgiveable. I feel like I bought a used cooler. You have been warned.
👤I don't normally do reviews on products, but this one deserves it. The top panel screws were loose and the switch was heat shrunk over the terminal with no crimp female connection. The front panel switch was siliconed in place and detached. Nice looking unit, but with poor quality control. Maybe it was my luck. Quality doesn't matter to anyone these days.
👤The product looked good until I started shaking it and noticed that a few of the screws and bolts were broken. Being quiet was not enough. Quality is terrible. I'm afraid to fire it up with good quality.
👤Loud and flimsy construction. I returned the unit for a refund because I was not impressed.
👤The temperature sensor works as advertised. The COLD feature is not recommended for rackmount or tower music systems.
👤It's not keeping my server cool. I had to bend the sides back to make it fit. If the company sends me another, I will do 5 star in the condition that they fix the issue with cooling.
👤The value is great. The top panel had foam to stop the rattle.
The dimensions are 1 in. The total airflow is 130 CFM, the total noise is 19 dBA, and the bearings are dual ball. A quiet fan system is used for cooling equipment. Protects components from overheating. There are six speed controls, alarm alerts, and memory in the thermostat. Three dual-ball bearing blowers with PWM-controlled motors are included. The dimensions are 17 x 13.5 x 1.5 in. Exhaust: Front, Airflow: 160 CFM, noise: 24 dBA.
👤I made the best small investment for my home theater yet. I was waiting on AC Infinity to make an S10 or T10 front exhaust system since the rear exhaust wouldn't work for me with my media rack not having an open rear cabinet and I wanted to stack my BD player on top of exhaust system. At the end of last year, I saw on their website that they were coming soon. I kept an eye out for them to be released, and both systems went on sale within days of each other. I ordered the T10 as soon as it was available. This thing does a great job of keeping my Onkyo TX-RZ720 nice and cool. The upgrade price for the S10 was too high, but the digital display was worth it. Being able to see the current temp of my AVR is very useful and I like the ability to set an alarm if the unit goes over a certain temp so I know to shut it off if I need to. I have a unit with a max temp setting of 87 degrees F for max fan speed to engage on that setting and it starts the fan on low speed at 77 degrees F, and for the past week it hasn't gone over 80 degrees F. I wanted to test the temp probe and see how hot my AVR was without cooling and didn't engage the fans and ran my AVR for 6 hours the day I got this and it showed my AVR hovering at about 94 degrees F. Very impressed! I can't really hear the fan running but the display tells me that it is and I can feel the air coming out of the front exhaust vents. Trust me, if you want to prolong the life of your AVR, you should grab one of the exhaust systems, either the S or T models, or whatever exhaust application works for you. The T has more bells and whistles than the S and I don't regret the extra $20 for these upgrades, but I do want to make sure my AVR is protected from overheating as it's one of the reasons high end boards go out early.
👤When the operating temperature is lower, electronics are more reliable. TheAIRCOM products try to keep the temperature down. A temp probe and feedback to fans are two of the factors that affect air flow over electronic circuit boards. Some people have said that these are quiet units. The fans make noise at 40% maximum. The manual doesn't try to set up a full range of utilization of the fan speeds by using the best methods. Most users will end up with too low a speed or full on and not a spectrum of speeds across a reasonable temperature range. The air temp over the electronic components is a result of the circuit design of the product, the amount of power being consumed and the packaging used in these components. You can only do so much to compensate for the poor design of the amplifier. There are six settings for the fan speed. The measured temp in my case did not get any cooler than it was when the fan speed was 40%. The fans are visible above this. A bit more circuit design and the controller could have utilized a continuous variation and not incremental steps, which would have been a better solution to the noise potential. I feel that more time could have been used in suggesting the best ways to set up the AIRCOM to take advantage of it's intended use, even though these comments may appear to be negative.
The standard company has a good reputation. The 19” computer rack cabinet is compatible with standard rack-mountable equipment, and has a mounting depth of up to 29” An intelligent fan system is designed for cooling equipment. Protects rack-mount equipment from overheating. The thermostat controller has a backup memory. Premium anodized aluminum construction has a professional appearance. The design of the 1U rack space is top exhaust with 60 to 300 CFM of airflow and 12 to 38 dBA of noise.
👤The product is what ACInfinity says it is. The fans are loud at speed levels 3 and up. The noise level is ok for me. The closet is devoted to this. We all came up with the same conclusion after doing an air volume test. The positioning of the fans is a problem. The design needs to be in a triangle layout with at least one fan close to the front position. Many devices have cooling ports closer to the front than the back. We wish ACInfinity would have thought of this. You can find the hot spot in the rack and place the probe there to gain a small advantage for keeping the air moving. Nice. The case was built well and the packaging was done well. The instructions were a little weak, but I figured it out. The internal components and wiring of the menu screen were pretty organized. Make sure you leave at least 1U full space below the fan rack for proper flow for all the customers who are going to use this. 1/2U is not enough for this product to be used in 1U. I would have liked to have seen a mounting tape for the probe. This would have finished the install. It took over two weeks to get this product to me and my staff. You should be the best in all aspects of shipping if you have the quality of your products. Work on getting the products shipped out. The final. There are thoughts. The fan unit has a good quality. The fans are ok. Does a good job of moving air. I would have liked a quiet fan setup at all speeds, it should be half the Db levels. At max speed, the levels are much higher. It's louder than the fans in my devices. The layout of the fans has an issue with air flow. A triangle layout would have been better, more efficient, and at least four fans instead of three, the devices above the unit that have cooling areas closer to the front would need a fan closer to the front. I can't give 5 stars because of the layout of the fans, but I can give 5 stars because of the quality of the product. Customer service and shipping need to be improved. If you know the facts, I recommend this product.
👤I own a variety of AC Infinity products, including an Airplate T7, two Airplate S3's, rack blanks, a Cloudplate T7-N, and a CLOUDPLATE T6 PRO. I know exactly what I'm getting with the products of AC Infinity, they are reliable and have a high-end look and feel to them, from the way they are packaged to the accompanying literature. I bought the Cloudplate T2 because I wanted to make my rack as silent as possible, and I wanted to change how heat was managed within my rack. I enjoy being completely immersed in movies, but extraneous distraction and fan noises have recently become unacceptable in my theater environment. When I installed the Cloudplate T2 in my rack, I was happy to hear a reduction in sound volume, but I wanted total silence, so I decided to install the Noctua fans in the unit. This was done with the help of some homemade creativity, since the AC fans are 38mm thick. I feel that this fits my needs perfectly, and that the rack accessory made it perfect to my ears. If I needed to, I would purchase all of the aforementioned products again. If I kept my rack in a different room, I wouldn't have made the modifications. The designs are well thought out and are worth the money. I would recommend them to anyone.
The dimensions are 5.8 x 2.0 x 4.7 in. A dual fan system that requires minimal noise is designed for cooling cabinets. An on-board processor provides a digital read-out of the cabinet's temperatures. The programming includes thermostat control, fan speed control, and energy saving mode. Two fan units with controller, containing aluminum frames with a brushed black finish. Each unit has a dimensions of 6.3 x 6.3 x 1.3 in.
👤The hardest part was cutting the holes. The templates for cutting are perfect. I tried every tool in the garage until I found the easiest, a rotoZIP. The fad tool from the 90's had to be used 5 times. It's more than payed for itself every time I use it. I remembered the tool after a long time. It was easy to cut the holes after that. The holes for the actual fans were cut slightly larger than the template to prevent noise. I traced the line on the template. It is easy to wire. I bought a fan system. The fans are one way and you have to disassemble one of them. I checked the air flow before I did that because it was already set up as an intake and exhaust. It works like a champ now that it's in.
👤The fans help keep the cabinet cool. I have a second set of cabinets in the works. The fan may cycle around your set temp too frequently in "Smart" mode. The fans kick on and off when the temp is between 78 and 80F, because they aren't silent and I set my controller to 80F. When the fans are on, the temp is usually high enough to keep them running, but when they're not, there's just enough heat to make the fans cycle constantly. If you're not watching TV in the living room, this is annoying. The solution is to stick with it. The fans come on at 80F and then turn off at 76F or 78F depending on how you set the interval, so they don't cycle as frequently. This is the best setting to use if you're sensitive to the noise of the fans.
👤My attempts at installation were not very good, I marred the surface around the control plate until I thought to tape off and the surrounding area to avoid such nicks. I don't think that's a problem with the product, just the installation, it's just the noise that the lowest speed fan makes, if it clicks on during a movie, it's something that can bother you if you're into the movie. Was hoping for better. The display is too bright on its dimmer setting to stay on full-time, so it mostly stays off unless I change it. I would have liked to see a dimme that was suitable for a home theatre setup. Minor complaints aside, I'm keeping the temps down where I want them, and can put big heat-producers in cabinets that made me nervous previously, so it does its job well.
👤I put this setup inside my desk cabinet so I could keep my two Synology NAS drives cool. The kit is very clean and well made. The DOA fan was replaced via Amazon without a problem. I'm really impressed with the 15 degree reduction in the cabinet's temperature. The slatted front of my cabinet allows for air to flow in. You can change the direction of the fan by flipping it around and reinstalling it. The only complaint I have about this product is that they should include an interior plate that mounts on the inside of the cabinet so that it looks just as clean as the outside.
