Zalman ZM-MFC1 Combo Fan Controller Review

Hardware Secrets
29 April 2010
  • Summary: MFC1 Combo is a classic fan controller, with "old school" potentiometers. In our opinion, this is not a flaw: with potentiometers the user has an easier and more intuitive way to adjust the fans in his computer than with programmable touchscreen panels. Simplicity, here, is a plus: if you want your computer to stay as cool as possible, you just need to turn the potentiometers to the maximum. If you want silence, you just turn them to the minimum.

Zalman ZM-MFC1 Multi Fan Speed Controller Review

16 May 2008
  • Conclusion: Zalman has a history of providing quality products, and the ZM-MFC1 continues that legacy. The unit is extremely compact and easy to install. The included drilling template allows users to customize the controller to meet their specific case design. The packaged extension cables alleviate having to manually solder longer wire lengths for rear and side-mounted fans.
  • Pros: Compact, Unique aesthetics, Effortless installation, Extension wiring included, Drilling template for custom installs, Incorporates features of both a rheobus and a baybus, Quality hardware for switches and knobs, Hardware will fit behind front bezel doors
  • Cons: Lower than average power rating on variable speed channels, LEDs flicker at lowest setting, Heatsinks get very hot under load

Zalman ZM-MFC1 fan controller

29 October 2007
  • Conclusion: The Zalman ZM-MFC1 does exactly what it tells and what I need: it allows to raise or lower the speed of 6 fans. The maximum speed is reduced a bit when using the knobs, but it's acceptable. I don't like that I have to cut the cables to use the switches, but maybe that was unavoidable to guarantee maximum voltage without power reductions.

Zalman ZM-MFC1 - zarządca wiatraków

4 January 2003
  • Excerpt: W moim poprzednim artykule zająłem się wyciszaniem grafiki, drugim po procesorze źródle hałasu. Dziś postaram się ujarzmić inne źródło hałasu tj. wiatraki, które zapewniają prawidłową cyrkulację w obudowie peceta. Takie jest ich zadanie, a jak to wygląda w praniu? Trudno mi na dzień dzisiejszy na nie odpowiedzieć, więc przejdę to sedna sprawy.
