Doesn't fit my case

Victoria J., Newegg
29 March 2014
  • Pros: Very nice fit and finish. Knobs were tight ( which was a concern of mine from reading the reviews).
  • Cons: Doesn't even fit in my case! I have a Corsair 750D which has tool less mounting 5.25 bays. Well, this controller is only about 2 inches long so there was no way i was going to get it to stay in one of my bays. Even with the included screws there was no where to screw it in because of the way my c...

Update

Theodore P., Newegg
25 April 2013
  • Summary: I won't bother with reporting it. I won't be purchasing another Zalman product, I won't carry it in my stores, feature them on my blog, and I'll recommend others to avoid it if it is within their budget. I don't intend to bash on them completely, but I'll just stay away after this.
  • Pros: It still works, technically.
  • Cons: Well where to begin. Basically now all of the LEDs light up a purple color, as if the blue and red are constantly lit. It seems some component on the PCB failed somewhere along the path. They still control the speed, but I wonder how long it's going to last if components are failing within a mont...

TERRIBLE.

John G., Newegg
7 November 2012
  • Summary: I wish I could rate this less than one egg
  • Pros: Arrived quickly.. if that's a pro.
  • Cons: No mounting hardware at all. 2 out of 4 slots were dead on arrival, bent pins.. overall completely unhappy with this. Doesn't even plug into a Zalman CPU cooler like the instructions say! Big let down.

Dies fast

Anonymous, Newegg
14 August 2012
  • Pros: Looked good.
  • Cons: This thing died on me after 3 months, I could not return it as I did not keep the box or invoice. I never expected a fan controller to die so fast.

Dear Zalman

Randy G., Newegg
20 March 2009
  • Summary: Having already dealt with a LOGIcal SYStem's garbage and that company's non-existent customer services, it's nice to see a manufacturer pay attention to product reviews and respond, accordingly.
  • Pros: Works in many (most?) instances.
  • Cons: Dear Zalman, If the specs provided don't state that the darn thing is limited to 7w or less, how is one to know? Do you suppose including this little tidbit of info might be of benefit to a prospective buyer? I appreciate that you apparently pay attention to the product reviews here. But I fail t...

  • Pros: Looks nice in my Mozart TX
  • Cons: Channels cut out, fans stop working. No good. Will try a second one but so far not worth it.

Dålig

WeeMaan, Prisjakt
11 April 2012
  • Summary: Allt är bra med denna fläktkontroller förutom en sak. Man kan inte dra fläktarna till max! Scythe S-Flex 1600 går t.ex bara till 1350. Nexus går på 990 istället för 1080. Noctua P12 går på 1200 istället för 1300, S12an går på ca 1100 istället för 1200.

Dålig

divinorum, Prisjakt
11 April 2012
  • Summary: - Klarar ej att driva full effekt på många fläktar. - Fästena till rattarna sitter väldigt löst. De vickar fram och tillbaka när man rör på dem. + Ganska snygg och klarar sex fläktar.
