   Part #: ZM-FAN MATE 2

Features    [ Edit | History ]
FAN MATE 1 is an adjustable fan speed connector for allowing you to control the speed of a fan to create an optimal cooling environment.

Specifications    [ Edit | History ]
Weight 20g
Output Voltage 5V ~ 11V ± 2%
Allowable Wattage 6W or lower
Directions for Use
1. Connect FAN MATE 1 (adjustable fan speed connector) to the 3-pin connector of a fan as shown in Figure 1.
2. Connect FAN MATE 1 to the 3-pin CPU fan connector of the mainboard.
3. Turn on the computer after assembly is finished.
4. When the speed control knob is turned fully counter-clockwise, the fan speed is minimum, and the fan operates in silent mode. You can select the desired fan speed by turning the knob.

When booting a computer in which FAN MATE 1 is used with the CPU fan, an alarm sound may be generated by a system monitoring program to indicate that the rotation of the CPU fan is slow.

If this happens, you may turn the speed control knob fully clockwise to increase the fan speed, set 'CPU Fan Detected' to 'Disabled' in the BIOS settings, or set the slowest rotation of the CPU fan in the system monitoring program to less than or equal to 1500 RPM.

Some mainboards do not boot if the rotation of the CPU fan is below a certain number of RPM. If the BIOS settings are updated, Silent Mode can be used. For more information on updating your BIOS , please refer to your mainboard manufacturer 's web site.

Zalman Tech provides Noise Prevention power supplies, CPU coolers, case fans, fan-less Northbridge coolers, and VGA coolers to provide you stable performance and a noiseless environment.
1.Please check the allowed wattage of the CPU fan connector on the motherboard, as well as
   the rated wattage of the fan to be used.

2. Zalman Tech. Co., Ltd. is not responsible for any damage to systems or CPUs caused by
   using the product outside of its specifications.

3. Do not use FAN MATE 1 with a fan having a start up voltage of more than 5V.
   Please check the start up voltage in the specifications of the fan.

4. The specifications of any product may change without prior notice to improve the performance

Easy Installiation
Poor build quality
Worked exactly the way I wanted. Build quality is not the greatest but everything works fine - I have 4 each controlling 1 fan for my entertainment setup.

It works
Can control the speed of most fans
Doesn't accurately control fan speed
It works fine but will not accurately control the speed of most fans. It does not properly control speed until 50% of the dial.

Experience: 2 Days

Small, cheap, works great
This is a good fan controller, i used it to lower the rpm of the h60 pump, to reduce the noise, and it worked

it works!
The mobo could not control the sys fan speed which runs at full spped causing excessive noises.

This is one of the solutions, and cost is minimal, can not complain.

Experience: 1 Weeks
Good price

Too much noisy fans in the market right now
This is the speed controller i need,
becasue i want to speed down my fans and make more quiet
Also very happy about the price

Special deal for $4 dollars something like that

Experience: 4 Months
Cheap and does what it is intended for.
Great product. I found the cable to be a bit long, but it wasn't an issue after using cables ties.

Easy to use
Small knob
This is an inexpensive solution for fan noise. It's very easy to use and does indeed dramatically quiet down noisy fans. My only gripe is that the knob is very small and the marking on it is hard to see.
