Zalman is readying a new multi-channel fan controller, the MFC1 Combo. This fan controller occupies one 5.25-inch drive bay, and comes with a brushed aluminum bezel. Out of the five independent channels the controller provides, four work on the conventional voltage-control principle, while one provides PWM (pulse-width modulation) control. Each channel delivers up to 7W / 0.6 A. The PWM-controlled channel also comes with a PWM-mode with three speed presets a fourth one can be user-defined. The Zalman MFC1 Combo should be priced at around 40 EUR.

Nice, but like most Zalman products, overpriced. 40 EUR? You could get an HD4K graphics card at that price. Too bad they keep all the profits for themselves... Retailers make next to nothing on Zalman products, so it's nearly impossible to find a good deal. They need a new business model, or better yet, more innovate products.

I like the preset feature. But yeah it is way over priced for what it is. This probaly has blue leds too, I wish they offereed different led colors.;)
