The NA-FC1 is a compact, highly flexible controller for 4-pin PWM fans that can both work on its own for manual speed reduction and also work in tandem with the automatic motherboard fan control. By adjusting the NA-FC1’s speed control dial, users can either manually set a PWM duty cycle from 0 to 100% or reduce the PWM duty cycle supplied by PC motherboards in order to have the fans running slower than the automatic motherboard fan control would allow. While the brightness of the orange status LED provides visual feedback on the current dial setting, the push button allows the NA-FC1 to be switched into “no stop” mode, which prevents the fan from falling below a speed of 300rpm.

Thanks to the supplied 3-way split cable and power supply adaptor, up to 3 fans can be controlled simultaneously.

Does what I wanted 7/6/2020 3:28:20 PM

Pros: Does what I wanted;
3 fans on one case fan header 1;
3 fans on one case fan header 2;
Using SATA to power both hubs, since over the 1A/12W max per header;
Love the manual fan control and always on mode;
Small and tiny takes no room at all;
Comes with PWD fan header cable extender;
PWD from headers to hub to fans works like should.

Cons: Have to watch out that the connectors don't pop out of the hub;
I wish a double sided tape would of came to stick the hubs to the back of the mobo panel.

Overall Review: Great, love it.

Great to have around 6/4/2020 10:12:58 PM

Pros: I have a few of these. They're a great way to convert PWM fans to work with a straight +12V output.

Overall Review: I have a few of these. They're a great way to convert PWM fans to work with a straight +12V output. Whether for your build, testing fans, etc. It's just a cheap, easy solution without having to go out and buy a full blown PWM source solution.

Provides great control of industrial fans. 12/11/2018 6:07:34 PM

Pros: - Does allow for manual speed control without PWM signal.
- Does does provide speed control on tandem with a motherboard's PWM speed control.
- Does come with cables to allow fans to be powered by power supply while being controlled and sensed by a motherboard.

Cons: Power adapter is only has Sata power and not molex.

Overall Review: - Useful for Noctua NF-A14 iPPC-3000 PWM to set a upper noise limit.

Function over Frills; It just works, VERY WELL! 9/24/2018 11:14:31 AM

Pros: -Well... my case has an onboard 3-pin controller, and I had 3x 12v Noctua IndustrialPPC 3000RPM PWM fans on it, set to 5v, and they were still VERY audible. My case is the Fractal Design Define R3, so it has a decent amount of bitumen coated sound proofing on both panels as well as the front and top. With the NA-FC1, not only can I adjust all the fans with my motherboard, its whisper quiet.
-Very intuitive, simplistic design, with some great options, and a fantastic manual for really easy installation.

Cons: -Was a bit crampt in the back of my case.
-No Adhesive to stick it where you want it to stay (ended up cable tying it behind the motherboard tray)
-Cables can kind of come loose, suggest Noctua to add some sort of clamping mechanism
-It feels cheap for $24 Canadian, but in function is farm from it, so worry not!
-It gets 5 eggs, but, hopefully someone at Noctua gets the memo about the cables (namely the 3-way splitter) being lose on the side that connects to the FC1.

Overall Review: Being someone who has a lot of Noctua Products, and in the past has had extremely good customer service, I am a Noctua fan for life. People will call them ugly, they'll spin and spudder about a lack of RGB, but Noctua nails its concepts head-on! Fast, Quiet Fans, with a loving build quality and well thought out design.

Noctua Quality! 5/3/2018 1:04:59 PM

Pros: Perfectly built, not the slightest defect

Guaranteed 6 years!

Reliable

Cons: Are you out of your mind, dude? ;-)

Overall Review: There is only one thing that can come out of your mouth once you opened the box: wow! And I think it is not necessary to precise that you have almost no chance to regret your purchase. You can hide it with your only thumb so it's small but it is the king of fan speed controllers. Well deserved 5 eggs.

Simple, hassle-free PWM fan control 4/18/2018 10:55:26 PM

Pros: - Simple set and forget design
- Compact size for easy placement
- Expandable to control many fans

Cons: - Only one channel, so you'll need more than one if you want to have your intake fans at a different RPM than your exhaust fans for example.
- Only one three way splitter included. Noctua fans come with splitters but I have Corsair fans.

Overall Review: I've been looking for a fan controller since my Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H-BK's fan control is garbage. There is no way to set custom curves in the UEFI, and after a while the fans start to ramp up and stay at a higher RPM than normal. I tried the fan controller that's built into the MasterCase Pro 5, but it's too loud even on the low setting.

I tried multiple fan controllers, starting with the NZXT Sentry (from old build), then the Corsair Commander, and finally NZXT's Grid+ V2. The Sentry worked great, but I didn't want to sacrifice a 140mm fan in my MasterCase Pro 5. Both the Commander and the Grid+ were garbage. The Commander will run your fans at 100% when you wake your computer from sleep, and you have to go into Link and change the percentage or fan curve for them to operate at the correct speed. The Grid+ doesn't maintain the set speed or curve. This wouldn't be an issue for some fans, but I have five ML140 fans connected and they are LOUD at full RPM.

Disgusted with the two software controlled options, and not wanting to spend over $100 on an Aquaero 6 LT (the only good software-based fan controller), I decided to try Noctua's fan controller. Needless to say it works great! I have five fans connected to it using two ModMyToys 4-way PWM fan splitters and the SATA power connection. Very satisfied and can't recommend highly enough! My only complaint is that I wish there was a three or four channel option to cut down on cable mess of more than one controller if you want more than one speed for multiple groups of fans.
