ZALMAN ZM-MFC1 INTRODUCTION
Ok, I admit it. I'm a control freak. When it comes to my computer, that is. I want to be able to control everything that I can, especially temperature and fan noise. Since its inception, Zalman has been a significant player in supplying quiet cooling solutions to the PC aftermarket and their reputation for innovation and quality is the envy of many in the industry. Today we have one of Zalman's newer products, the ZM-MFC1 Combo fan controller and I'm anxious to see what it can do. According to the Zalman website, this product is available in both black and silver color with a heavy aluminum front panel and supports up to six fans, including a PWM channel. As you'll soon discover, we've got a black one for evaluation. It looks great, but let's see how it works.
ZALMAN CORPORATE PROFILE
Despite the fact that computers have become commonplace at home and at workplaces for a long time, true user-friendliness of the computers is still a long shot. At Zalman Tech, we strive to make that goal a closer reality through extensive research and development of our products. We were the world first in reducing computer's noise down to lower than 20dB, thus creating a more user-friendly computing environment. Now it is possible to use a computer without distracting noise and to form high fidelity audio system or home theatre without ambient noise.
Zalman Tech will continue to make efforts at creating more enhanced levels of user friendliness in computing; we believe that we have the ability and determination to achieve this goal. Your support and interest is greatly appreciated.
