3 out of 5 eggsNot quite right

Pros: Nicely made
Good materials
Clear instructions

Cons: Doesn't fit the standard 5.25 bay. Theres a gap at the top of almost 1/8 inch.

Other Thoughts: On a $2k build, the parts need to fit. this doesn't and even though it looks nice, it's not right. Probably works fine as other reviewers said but I couldn't get past the design.

4 out of 5 eggsSimple no frills controller

Pros: Simple to install and connect up. Knobs seem well designed, rotational force seems correct, not loose, not too tight.

Cons: While it fit my case (nzxt Source 210) it isn't super secure. The tool less mounting is a non starter due to the short mounting ears on the unit, but fortunately 3 of the 4 holes lined up with holes in the case. There is a bit of a gap around the bezel but not too unsightly.

Other Thoughts: As another review pointed out, two of the connections have a 3/2 splitter harness that is meant to plug into the mobo on one end, to the controller, and then to the fan. Why that is, is a mystery to me. Thanks, but I rather direct connect my cpu fan anyway. The only reason I wanted this was to use as power distribution, and I have 5 of the 6 ports, including the goofy ones designed to plug to the mobo just directly plugged into the fans, and it all seems to work just fine. I agree tho, the led's change color.....why? LOL, its not like you can't just look at the control knob and see where it is set. Maybe

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't fit my case

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 case is built and the way this is built. I was looking for any way possible to get it to work and it wasn't going to happen unless it was 5 inches deep in my case. Second, there are 4 three pin connectors and 2 that have a connector that goes from the controller to the fan to the motherboard. Which I have no idea why you would need. Luckily I only had 4 fans or i would have been out of luck. (if i had gotten to use it) They need to add this to the description so others aren't fooled.
Was looking forward to replacing my current controller but this one let me down.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Controller

Pros: Everything works as promised it looks great and would go best with a corsair obsidian series case with a brushed finish. Easy install and simple instructions for beginners.

Cons: The only con i have which is not worthy of an egg drop is I wish the knobs were a bit more robust.

Other Thoughts: Wonderful product. Zalman should maybe make some with sleeved cables to bump the overall quality?

4 out of 5 eggsGreat but fits weird

Pros: A lot of slots to hook up fans, looks really nice, knobs are firm in contrast to other reviews, LEDs are perfectly bright.

Cons: It doesn't sit tight in my case. The LEDs, although perfectly bright, are not very helpful. Blue until it is turned past 80% or so, then red. I think I know when I turn it that far myself. Also, the front of this looks super nice, except th big ZALMAN block text. Look at the pictures and you'll see what I mean.

Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the money; if you need a fan controller get this one. -1 egg for not fitting in my case.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it should

Pros: Its been used daily for almost 6 years, and still going strong
Attractive brushed front
Wide range of fan speeds
Removable knobs

Cons: required some creative engineering to stay secured in the case

Other Thoughts: The knobs didn't allow my Coolermaster Cosmos case door to close, but the knobs just pull right off to reveal smaller knobs that work perfectly!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little controller

Pros: Sleek brushed aluminum finish, indicator light for active fans, does what it's supposed to and best of all it's inexpensive.

Cons: Died after powering a pair of Deltas and four Yate Loons nonstop for two and a half years. Visible charring on one of the ICs attached to the heatsink from where it blew. Received a proper burial in the electronic recycling bin at work along with a 21 capacitor salute. It lived a good life, it will be missed.

Other Thoughts: I didn't think it to last this long (cheap fan controllers generally have shoddy components) but it exceeded my expectations. I don't have 5.25" bays in my current PCs but I might buy another to part out for another internal install. I wish there were PCI-slotted multi-channel fan controllers so I wouldn't have to mod my cases to mount them internally.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Does everything it's supposed to do exactly the way it should.

Cons: I can't find any

Other Thoughts: It doesn't fit well in my case, but it wasn't that much work to make it fit the way I wanted.

5 out of 5 eggssolid product

Pros: - has good weight behind it, feels sturdy and not cheap
- very nice black metal finish on the front, can't tell from the pictures

Cons: None that would warrant taking off an egg. The knobs themselves are ever so slightly wobbly.

Other Thoughts: Worked out of the box, pretty much does what you want it to do. Controls all six fans, all led work correctly.

Just something to keep in mind. The included fan extension cables are 3 pin. You don't need a 4th pin for this setup but the jacks on the extension cables are enclosed and a 4 pin fan connector just wont fit unless you do some creative destruction.
