Other than the high voltage on channel 1 in the low position, I found the ThermalTake Commander F5 being a very reliable fan controller, the fan controller is very flexible while making precise changes to the fans speed as the sliders are very easy to operate and slide freely with no friction. The Commander F5 fan controller that has an incredible design, with its mesh face cover it really makes the red sliders stand out.
Although I haven’t found this fan controller being sold in the States, I did find it available at pccasegear.com for a competitive price at $35 USD which is a great purchase once it becomes available in the United States. Currently no warranty information or a release date is provided. If you’re looking for a manual fan controller, the ThermalTake F5 should be on your short list of cooling accessories. ThinkComputers would like to award the ThermalTake Commander F5 a 9 out of 10 score.
