Mine works! 4/13/2017 4:03:41 AM

Pros: Adjust fan speed on 3-pin fans. Mount with included tape or use screw hole (no screw).

Cons: none really

Overall Review: This is what I needed for my monster stereo. The fan inside developed a noise and was impossible to get to with out taking the whole thing apart. A Silenx fan mounted on the heatsink tube, this controller and a modified 12V AC/DC adapter from an old hard drive enclosure did the trick.

A LITTLE TIP: If you want to do this with a PC, take a look at the Rosewill 2-ball bearing fan that comes with a controller that mounts in a PC chassis card slot. A shiny fan grill is included too. The whole kit costs about as much as this Fan Mate. N82E16835200028

Handles 4000rpm fan fine. 2/8/2017 9:04:38 AM

Pros: It handles my 4000rpm Case fan just fine on my ITX build.

Cons: It gets hot maybe keep it in airflow. Probably wasn't meant to handle my fan.

Overall Review: GREAT fan controller if you seat it hidden and just pop the knob through a drilled hole like I did.

Not worth the money 12/17/2016 9:14:08 AM

Pros: No Pro's, both arrived in non-working condition

Cons: Presents themselves as a pro piece of equipment...they're not.

Overall Review: We purchased two of these to accompany two 120mm fans for our recording studio production booth build. Both arrived non working. One had a pin bent, the other, the materials so cheap, the controller knob doesn't work. Now we have to source again and replace the two in the booth....booth build now two weeks past due date thanks to two cheap Korean parts.

DOA 8/21/2016 2:35:19 PM

Pros: It's a Zalman?
none that I could tell

Cons: DOA seems to be common.

Overall Review: Unfortunately I did not get this installed in time to return it under warranty but I does not/did not work. Not really worth it to return a 5$ part. I am disappointed in Zalman, That name used to mean quality.

Works, what more could you ask for? 8/9/2016 3:18:33 PM

Pros: Easy to set up, comes with double-sided sticky foam so you can mount it anywhere.

Cons: Doesn't allow for 4-pin fans to be installed, had to cut the side of the connector off so one would fit.

Overall Review: I've bought a few of these for different builds over the years and they work great.

Nice single fan controller 9/16/2015 11:20:29 AM

Pros: You can set the fan speed to exactly the speed you need. Typically that means that fan noise is reduced quite a bit, but you can put "peddle to the metal" if you occasionally need it.

Cons: Can warm up somewhat. My suggestion is to zip tie it near the fan grate and let the fan cool it.

Overall Review: I would order this again. If you have any problems contact Zalman and they will take care of it.

One out of two worked fine 6/6/2015 8:02:43 AM

Pros: Nice range in speed variation for the fans the one Zalman was attached.

Cons: Sadly, of the two Zalman Fanmates I purchased the second had only minimal variation between max and min rpms.

Overall Review: I'm happy with the Zalman that worked and unhappy with the one that didn't....duh.
heh.
Anyway, gonna order 2 more to be safe.
