  • Good, Cheap, Weak.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    + even cheaper than a zalman fanmate!
    + I really like the knob, from a few cm away it looks really well finished

    Cons:

    - Very weak, only handles up to 0.12A, don't daisy chain anything to this! Might want to look up what your fan needs before you order it as a lot of fans bigger than 80mm will burn this thing out.

    OtherThoughts:

    Cable is quite long, could be a pro or a con depending on what you need.

    Bottomline:

    Ordered it for my Antec big boy, read the label when I got it.. and that's not going to work. Fan requires 0.3A, controller does 0.12A.
    For comparison, specs of a few fans I got here.
    ? 200MM Antec Big Boy - 0.3A
    ? 120MM Cooler Master - 0.37A
    ? 92MM Nexus Basic - 0.25A
    ? 92MM Noctua NF-B9 - 0.11A
    ? 80MM Vantec Stealth - 0.10A
    ? 80MM Cooler Master standard - 0.11A
    (Check = works, cross = will burn out this fan controller)
    So yeah, no wonder people burn out this fan. Be careful with what you hook up to it. I'll be using this one for my HTPC and will be ordering SKU13987 for what I wanted to use it for as that one does up 1.0A.
