3 out of 5 eggs It works... 08/15/2009

This review is from: ZALMAN ZM-MFC1 Fan Controller Panel

Pros:

Controls the fans just as it is supposed to. The blue LEDs look good with my case.

Cons:

The 4 knobs are somewhat cheap. After a weeks worth of use, the first knob keeps spinning after you are all the way up or down on the adjustment. I'll probably have to glue them on, but no big deal. Another odd thing is, the LEDs on the 4 adjustible channels flicker, and they are connected to ZALMAN FANS. The only one that doesn't flicker is connected to the cheapo fan that came with the case. When I first fired it up, something fried on the controller, but I don't know what it was. Stunk for a while but it works just fine.

Other Thoughts:

Seems like a lot of cons, but this is a good looking controller, at least for my build, and it does what it says it does. It will only work with 3 pin fans and the two switch controlled channels have to have two-wire fans with no connector. Also, my BIOS won't read the fan RPMs now that I have run the fans thru this controller, even though Zalman provides split cables to keep the fans connected to the mobo. Oh well. I didn't run my CPU fan through this.
