Default zalmaan 6 fan, fan controller

Anyone have any experience with this thing?

I need to control exactly 6 fans, so it seems ideal, plus my color scheme for my computer is black and red.

Newegg.com - ZALMAN MFC1 Plus-B Black 6 Channel Multi Fan Controller - Controller Panels

Currently I have a scythe master ace with vfd and it looks great, but its green/blue, and it only has 4 controls. I could pick up another, but I thought it might be better to just get 1 fan controller

after reading alot of the review on newegg Im a little scared to buy it

My suggestion, is to get a Sunbeam Reaobus Extreme , they are really high Grade Fan Controller.

I have no idea then beyond that.

To be honest. I don't want to steer you towards a Controller that is garbage, so I refrain from suggesting it.

Sorry man,

the sunbeam looks good... but if it's anything like the rest of the crap they build i would stay far FAR away from the sunbeam.

The zalman looks like a PWM fan controller. If you have any LED fans hooked up to it the light will pulse driving you insane. Thats just my gut feeling after looking at the pictures.. i cannot confirm that the Zalman is a PWM or Rheobus style fan controller.
