Fan Controller Glitch! 06/06/2014
This review is from: Thermaltake Commander F5 Multi Fan Controller
Smooth-sliding controls, easy operation, and simple plug-and-play setup. Works well with any fan plugged into the side of my case.
For some reason, the fan controller doesn't even get below 6 volts. What kind of fans do I pair this with?
One of the controls' LED status lights is either not lit (either burnt out or shorted), but the fan on that controller still works.
This is more than ideal than cutting the connector off and sticking it into either the 5v rail or the 12v rail directly off the power supply. I got this to control my Corsair Air Series fans on the side of my case. I tried other fans and even my Zalman cooler. Now some people don't recommend trying to use this for CPU cooling. A major improvement would be if they made them fully PWM-controlled, that is, include additional pins for real speed control.
