Best FC I have used in years!

Originally I wanted the FC5 V2 but it was out of stock in black, so I went for this instead and I'm so glad I did!
The 20w per chan of the FC6 means I could IF I wanted too, chain all my fans together (7 in total including 3 LED ones) off one channel. That is immense!
The LED display is bright and easy to read, you can change the colour too!
I use Akasa fan splitters on 3 of the channels and have my front intake on it's own channel.

It's sleek, comes with ample cable length although the molex cable didn't work for me as it was a bit naff but that's not an issue really. The temp probes have enough length to go anywhere you want to place them.

It controls the fans really well, keeping them within 10-20RPM of what you want at all time's.
Could not recommend enough!

Not as good as hoped...

As other reviewers have mentioned, it is slightly problematic when fitting into a 5.25" bay due to being short.

Using Corsair Carbide 500R - I found the unit does not fit flush against the front - It stands slightly proud anyway, but also pivots up and down leaving a 4mm gap, through which the display backlight glares through. The faceplate is also not fitted straight, leaving the unit looking wonky as well.
My 'tool-free' bay still required me to use 2 screws as the side fins aren't long enough. Up to this point, the unit was starting to feel as cheap as the price suggests.

Build quality is OK, but not helped by cheap packaging - One temperature probe was bent, the control knobs stick out different distances (can be corrected by pushing or pulling) and the wonderful black sleeving on two of the extension cables had come out of the heatshrink and were badly fraying apart.

Other than that, the unit works well. Colours are good, display is easy to read from all angles and not too bright, dials are smooth. Overall, I'm happy with this, but expected slightly better based on reviews.

One of the best available

Had this for a year now after trying out a few controllers. It looks great and works well. The ability to change the colour of display is handy, though my fans are red I left it at white as easier to read. Don't worry about adding multiple fans to one controller as there is more than enough power. I have 3x 200mm MegaFlow fans on one controller and it powers them up and down with ease.

Lovely

Does what you'd expect it to do and looks great doing it.

First, I should mention that all the provided cables are quality black braided items, not the ugly, multi-coloured ones you may have seen in pics.

The display also looks as good as it does in the official pics, and not like the ones you may have seen with constantly ghosted zeros.
Colours are correct too, with the minor exception of white being very slightly tinged with lilac.

I currently have two 120mm/1500rpm fans per channel connected to 3 inputs and one on the 4th with no issues.

I'd maybe prefer a bit more power on each channel to be on the even safer side, but that's where the Lamptron FC5v2 comes in for a bit more money if you can find one.

This thing really can add classy good looks without getting too christmassy about it.
I'd only gripe about the fiddly pin bridging method of changing display colours. It really should have a button, but other than that it's VERY well built & performs excellently.

Good Value

Bought this to slow some of my 140mm fans (6 in total). I have Y splitter cables, so I have put 2 fans on each channel (you will need to make sure the wattage of the fans isnt over the total wattage that the channels can handle. The controller works great, but as my fans only work with very high minimum input volts, the knobs only start turning the fans at 3/4 turn. The build quality of the product is good and the temp readings are acurate. you get 4 probes in total, and 4 fan extension cables)

My only gripes are that in a small case all the cables do look a bit messy, but im sure if you are good at cable management you can make it look nice. Also, if your case is using tooless 5.25 bays, then this product is quite difficult to fit as it is very short.

Overall I would give this product 4.5/5 or 90%...considering the aesthetics and price.

I love it!

I got this delivered from overclockers yesterday and it's just what i needed as my 4 12cm fans were too noisy. The black finish looks great in my case and i chose the blue LED display setting which matches the rest of my computer. I can not only control my fans with this if i turn them right down it switches them off which is perfect for when it's idle when i sleep. It comes with four three pin extension cables and being able to see the temps wherever i put the sensors is good too. I didn't want to be messing around pressing an lcd display when i changed the speed and the manual control is perfect for me. I recommend this to anyone who needs a fan controller with manual control.
