Pros Nice display, Easy to install, Intuitive controls, Power usage display, Solid construction.
Cons Minimal instructions but if you've figured out how to open up your PC then you should be able to figure this out no problem. Temperature probe tape is useless. Fan speed can't be controlled automatically by temperature. High Price
Summary Works great with 3 pin fans (RPM reporting) and 1 channel PWM (4 pin) fan. Will not show RPM for 2 pin fans (doesn't claim to!). Installation was a breeze but make sure you take the time to route cables neatly or you will end up with a rats nest. Temperature probes were a little tricky to install since the tape that is supplied doesn't stick very well. I'm also not sure where to place the probes for the best reporting information. I have one on my SSD, one on my Power phase heatsink, one on my GPU heatsink and one on my RAM. Power comsumption display is neat but not really necessary and timer is also an unecessary feature. Would have been better if the display showed CPU speed and load percentage but that would have required a some sort of connection to the motherboard (PCI adapter board maybe?) to get that info. I'll give 4 stars only because I think it is over priced for what it does otherwise it functions great and looks good too.
Summary This Zalman ZM-MFC3 4 Fan Speed Controller 5.25IN Bay W/ Backlit LCD Fstn Timer Display is good i will give 4 star because on the CPU Fan Speed does not read it give me 512 Rpm. but other then that it's good product.
RBMod review of the Zalman ZM-MFC3 4 Fan Speed Controller: The ability to control four channels, with multiple fans on each channel is a great feature, and probably the one element that makes this prodcut worthy of consideration. But but be sure to take the time to clean up your cable clutter.
