3 out of 5 eggs Fan Controller Glitch! 06/06/2014

This review is from: Thermaltake Commander F5 Multi Fan Controller

Pros:

Smooth-sliding controls, easy operation, and simple plug-and-play setup. Works well with any fan plugged into the side of my case.

Cons:

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.

Other Thoughts:

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.
