1 out of 5 eggsSeems to be interfering with audio

Pros: None

Cons: Not sure if I am the only one to experience this but I installed this in my sons new computer. Have noticed a high pitched noise that I can only describe as some sort of feedback occurring. Very strongly suspect it has something to do with this device most likely from the fan control. Plan to remove it in the near future and will post an update. Seems like a good idea for a product but in practice not so much. Did notice when I took it out of the box the construction seemed rather cheap looking. Not sure what I was thinking buying this as fan speed control really isn't necessary. Cannot even remotely recommend this product. Please do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

1 out of 5 eggsavoid

Pros: lots of features

Cons: ...unfortunately they don't work all that well

Other Thoughts: the fan controllers worked but half the LEDs didn't. only half the USB3 ports worked and 1 of 3 (don't own any microSD to test) media worked (CF didn't, SD was fine). needless to say this was returned

1 out of 5 eggsPoor QC

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: MicroSD reader didn't line up with the hole properly making it almost impossible to insert a card. I had to take it apart and shave 1mm off the standoffs the reader sits on to make it line up properly.

Fan control 3 worked only after putting upward pressure on the knob. This was apparently a cold solder joint and I managed to fix that too (don't try this without experience).

Usb ports are way to tight. I'm afraid I'll break it trying to use them.

The L.E.D.'s flash at an extremely fast rate. It slows down and is more noticeable when the fan knobs are turned down. If the case was in my peripheral vision more often it would drive me insane instead of just annoying me like it does now.

Other Thoughts: If quality control existed or had done its job then this would have got 5 Eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsAdded a little more than what I was expecting

Pros: Everything on it works! Hooking it up is very straight forward and I had no issues. I like the blue LED under each control knob. The two USB 3.0 ports and Multi-Card reader are nice extras that I really appreciate now, its one of those things I didn't know how much I really needed until I installed this unit. All three models of fans I've used with this unit have a large degree of RPM adjustability... from a very slow dead-quiet up to a high RPM whoosh of rushing air. Its exactly how I imagined it would all work.

Cons: It would have been nice to get actual RPM read-outs on this but in this price range I really didn't expect to get that.

Other Thoughts: This is a very good value if its what you're looking for. The convenience of the USB 3.0 ports and multi-card reader should not be under-estimated. I've only used this with standard 3-pin fans but it seems to offer a large range of speeds. I also have other fans on my system that are PWM controlled and so don't need a manual controller. I only crank up the (non-PWM) case fans I have attached to this controller when I really want to push some air but mostly I leave them set to inaudible levels.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't get this

Pros: The card reader works, as does the USB 3.0

Cons: The fan controllers are terrible

Other Thoughts: These are supposed to control the standard 3-pin case fans using a knob on the front panel.

They don't work.

I've tried them with the Noctua NF-P12, and with some generic 80 mm fans, and they kind-sorta make some fans spin, but leave other fans to not spin at all.

The fan controls seem to work differently from each other - some of them definitely work better than others, but not of them work very well.

4 out of 5 eggsDEEPCOOL Rock Master V3.0 Fan Control Panel

Pros: Does what it says it will do.

Cons: See "Other Thoughts"

Other Thoughts: While not really a "con" per se, I do find it hard to believe that a DEEPCOOL fan controller will not work with the tool-less setup that the DEEPCOOL cases use. I did try putting this into two OEM cases and one other aftermarket case with no problems, but I had to all but weld the thing to fit into my DEEPCOOL case. It should also be noted that this isn't really the product to install into a case after everything else has been installed.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value + Space Saving Combo

Pros: Works reliably. Combination of 2 USB 3.0 ports + 4 fan controllers space saving and convenient. [Haven't used the card reader.]

Cons: Short length of the side walls of the unit and limited horizontal hole-cluster make it difficult to align and secure the unit in the PC case.

Other Thoughts: If you need to control fan speed to quiet your case and you need / want front panel USB 3.0 ports, this unit is an outstanding value.

Be mindful of the draw on the fans you connect and stay within the 40W limit. I am running 2x two-ganged [4.5 W individual] fans on two channels and 1x 4.5W fan on a third. Effective control. LEDs on the ganged channels blink.

Definitely connect the extension and power cables BEFORE fitting the unit in the case!

3 out of 5 eggsNot Too Powerful

Pros: Looks cool, has USB ports and SD card slot, good price for computers with weaker/less fans.

Cons: If you have radiators or somewhat more powerful fans I do not recommend this product. I installed this controller, and couldn't get get the fan 3 knob to work, even though the fan was plugged in. Then within 5 minutes my house instantly fills up with the smell of something electrical burning. I then turn off my computer, uninstall the controller, and notice a burn mark on the PCB board under one of the chips. Then to be absolutely sure it was the controller, which the burn mark pretty much gives it away, I turned on my computer without the controller (which is perfectly fine with my computer as its water cooled and the pump is still running, just the radiators aren't running) after the smell has passed ,and let it run for a while. So far there is no more smell so I can confirm with certainty that it is this controller that was burning.

Other Thoughts: I got this to replace my old Lamptron FC4, which finally gave out after 4-5 years of heavy use. Without thinking, I bought this controller without even thinking to look at the maximum wattage. If I wouldn't have been an idiot and would have looked at the wattage, I would have went with controller with a much higher wattage rating. If your looking for a controller to power high end fans, simply do not get this controller, however if your looking for a controller the power a couple of average fans, then this fan should get the job done.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsIt works.

Pros: -It works.
-Blows away other options for this price range.

Cons: -Installing was a little annoying, it didn't seem to like a the bay that I wanted it in, but it slid into my other ones easily so it is probably just a problem with my case.

Other Thoughts: -It only comes with 4 3 pin extension cables (1 for each fan) which was not optimal for my setup so I ended up using one for the power (I don't have a fan to occupy the 4th controller anyways)

The CF/SD/Micro ports run off of USB 2.0, which doesn't really make sense to me considering it has USB 3.0 ports right next to it, it could be improved in that sense.
