Closer Look
Like the NXP-205's older brother, the NXP-205 comes in two colors; Black & Silver. I prefer the silver one because I have an Aluminum Lian Li case, and the silver one matches very well with the Aluminum of my case. On the front of the NXP-205 you'll notice a ring around each of the four knobs. This ring actually lights up bright blue when the unit is turned on. I really wish that they would bright and dim depending on if you have knob turned to the low or high setting, but it doesn't.



On the back of the NXP-205 you'll find four 3-pin fan connectors and one 4-pin molex connector. Each of the four 3-pin connectors are numbered, one through four and they match the sequence of the knobs on the front of the NXP-205 (that are also numbered). I thought it was a good idea that Vantec had, to make the fan connectors sit on the printer circuit board horizontal rather than vertical to help save space and cut down on wire clutter.
