Works for me.

  • Summary: Overall i think its nice, i don't want something that is too flashy or digital, This works fine but the construction and effort into this thing is not worth the money you pay.
  • Pros: -Has the ability to control cpu fan along with regular fans.
  • Cons: -The buttons are flimsy so i don't want to touch them

  • Summary: Does its job, although it is a bit flimsy, i always feel like I'm going to break the knobs off whenever I touch them... Other than that though it does its job nicely.

One channel didn't work

Justin R., Newegg

  • Summary: RMA'd and NewEgg is taking care of the problem, a new one is on the way. This is why i buy from NewEgg, computer stuff is complex, so every once in a while something won't work right, and NewEgg makes dealing with these problems almost pleasant.
  • Pros: It controls the speed of the fans from 7-11 volts just like it says. Nice brushed black color. Led's let you know at a glance if a fan is on LOW or HIGH speed. Comes with extension cables for far away fans in full tower cases. I would say that going from high to low speed reduces the noise in my case by about 50%.
  • Cons: Channel 3 didn't work... at all... the LED doesn't work, and the fan doesn't spin. Tested with a volt meter and sure enough, no juice.

Almost Great

Jerry S., Newegg

  • Summary: The fit looks OK. At least as good as my two optical drives.
  • Pros: Worked fine to control Cpu Fan, Video card fan and 2 case fans.
  • Cons: A 3 to 4 pin adapter should be provided, as this is a standard Intel processor fan connection.

first review of a great product!

Matthew R., Newegg
15 August 2007
  • Summary: All in all a very good product. 1 thing to note though is only 3 pin fan cables are accepted so no 4 pin molex fans can be controlled with this. I am very annoyed (at Antec not Zalman) for supplying only 4 pin fans with the 900 case. There exists NO 4 to 3 pin adapters for fans so I clipped the 4 pin molex off and soldered 3 pin plugs onto each stock fan. Now I can control ALL fans with this controller which is what I intended from the get go.
  • Pros: Excellent control of 6 fans!! Knobs are easy to grasp and aren't too small or too close to one another. LED light for each fan is a nice touch and they aren't excessively bright (I sleep with my computer on in my room and have no problems). Black finish is reasonably high quality and matches my black Antec 900 case very well. I seriously was considering the Zalman MFC2 which has a nice LED display and 1 knob to control 4 fans but I believe this controller to be a bett...
  • Cons: Since this is the only review you will find of this product (literally I scouted the internet for reviews and found none) I will be as nit picky as possible. first off the knobs although being of sturdy metal are attached somewhat losely and feel flimsy when you rotate them. Second, the unit is about 1mm lacking in width and about 2mm lacking in height, meaning there is a very small gap on the sides and a small gap at the top. This may be due to my case design not sur...

Mycket bra

  • Summary: Fungerar som den skall. hela den synliga delen är i metall. + metall, känns hyfsat robust + lätt att installera + följer med bra med förlängningsladdar. Går även att koppla in fläktarna utan dem. - går inte att köra flera fläktar på en kontroller, eller det går men då funkar inte LEDen. - Hade hellre sett en SATA power istället för molex.

  • Summary: Gör sitt jobb men kvalitén känns lite sådär. En lysdiod/LED var trasig som för många andra men det spelar inte så stor roll. Rattarna sitter väldigt löst, vissa har tyngre motstånd än andra (bådar inte gott för framtiden - glapp etc.). En bra produkt med tanke på priset men finns mycket negativt också.

  • Summary: Snygg och gör sitt jobb. Tyvärr var en diod trasig (lyser varken rött eller blått) och jag orkar inte mecka ur allt och skicka tillbaks...

Bra

  • Summary: Fungerar bra än så länge för mig (4 månader). Härligt att kunna justera fläktarna, men en av/på knapp för varje fläkt hade gjort susen. Kör alla fläktar på lägsta (5v), vilket inte är tillräckligt lågt för att få dem knäpptysta. Har den svarta modellen som smälter in bra i mitt CM Storm Scout chassi. Fast den sitter inte så stadigt eftersom jag har skruvfri fästning där.
