Great Fan Controller
Rene from Edmonton writes:
- Works great to control up to 10x PWM fans. My motherboard has 2x 4 pin fan headers and I wanted to expand. Bought the ThermalTake Commander FP about a year ago and it works great. You need to connect one of your PWM fans to the glossy port so your motherboard can detect the speed. All other fans can be connected to the other 9 available ports and will run at the same speed as the fan connected to the glossy port. Made a custom fan curve in my BIOS/UEFI and it works like a charm.
- None that I can think of...
- Great fan controller for the price. Guessing the other 2 reviewers didn't follow the (very) easy instructions...
Should Have read Reviews 1st

- Has 10 ports, cool blue LED.
- Does not split the control signal. if you plug fans into any of the 10 ports they are not controlled by the motherboard. The fans will run at full speed not what I expected. The new 2x 140 fans i got came with external connectors (piggyback) so I just piggy backed my 3 x 140 fans, and they run just fine.
- Not what I expected, so i will be returning it. As the sales associate stated IT SHOULD control the fans. I do not recommend it, as 140mm fans get loud at full speed.
Not what I excpected

- has 10 ports, which is great if you bought a cheap mobo with only one system fan header, like I did.
- Does not split the control signal. if you plug fans into any of the 9 ports that are not controlled by the motherboard, the fans will run at full speed. with the ML120s that I added to my case, the noise was far more then I expected, so I had to remove one fan, and only use one pwm fan connected to the hub.
- Not what I expected, but it does what I need it to do. I do not recommend fans that get loud at high speeds with this, as they will not get any speed control.
