    This sounds reminiscent of the old Antec Tricool fans (bundled with the original P180). Is the switch just a speed setting, does it cap the possible fan speed (under PWM control), or does it remap the range of PWM available? Reply

    Why?

    With BIOS fan controls getter better and better manual fan controls are completely useless. All this would do is cut down your cooling headroom.

    Some MB's still have limited 4 pin PWM headers. I only have 3 and the other 2 are 3pin that lack control. This would be good for situations like these. Or using these for molex fans if you use more fans than you got headers so you don't have to get a fan controller. Reply

    Love my job, since I've been bringing in $82h… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online. (Home more information)

    Shouldn't a tech site be able to automatically block these "Love my job..." scammers? Reply

    This might be useful when you chain several fans onto one PWM header (I don't have enough of them) and want further differentiation between fans (e.g. more on the CPU cooler, less on the case fans). Reply

    Why would anyone say the Magmas have questionable reliability??? They are the most reliable fan I have ever used.
    I have been running 6 of them for 5 years, 12 to 16 hours every day and they still run strong and as inaudible bearing & motor as on day one. Plus I have used about 20 more of them in many rigs I built for other people, where they also are absolutely reliable in every single aspect.

    However I wish instead of these here, they would finally make some more unusual models with the twister bearing and finally get rid of that counter-productive "halo" frame on most of their fans. Like 10/15 mm height ones.
