A Closer Look



The ZM-MFC2 comes with a fair amount of hardware. First, we see the CVS (Current Voltage Sensor) At first, I thought it was an AC adapter, but it actually goes between the wall socket and your power supply. There are also fan power extensions, temp sensors, a PCI bracket, thermal tape, and some screws. Finally there is a instruction booklet, mine was in well-translated English on one side, and Korean on the other.

It's pretty obvious that this isn't your normal fan controller.



1-Graphic Power Load Meter: Displays power between 30 to 800W in 4 stages.

2-Numeric Power Load Display: Numerically displays power between 30 and 800W. (The Numeric Power Load Display will read “LLL”when an overflow occurs. “LLL”indicates power loads beyond the unit's measurable range.)

3-Fan Status Display: The Fan's operation status is indicated with animated propeller images.

4-Fan Channels

5-RPM Display: During RPM Setting, RPM is displayed in units of 60RPM, and actual operational RPM is displayed in units of 10RPM.

6-Temperature Display: Displays temperature readings between -9 °C and +99 °C

7-Jog Wheel: Used for adjusting Fan RPM. RPM can be set from 1000 to 5940RPM in units of 60RPM.

8-Mode Button: Used for selecting a Fan Channel and saving the Fan RPM setting.



1-Standard Fans (Fan 1~3): 3-Pin fans that include the RPM output function can be connected for use. PWM Fan (Fan 4): 4-Pin fan that includes the PWM function can be connected for use.

2-Temperature Sensing: Four temperature sensors can be connected.
