Installation of the Rheosmart 6 will require screws. It is far too short to be held in place by any tool-less drive bay design, such as those often found in Cooler Master's cases. If you don't have a tool-less case, then installation is very simple: two screws to each side. If you do, two screws to the side opposite the tool-less drive bay rail. It won't be tightest fit, but, it will keep the controller from moving about so much, and, it doesn't require any dismantling of the tool-less bay rails. Once installed, the Rheosmart 6 looks very sleek. The black mesh will have it easily blend into any case that has a black mesh front, and won't look too bad on a black case without mesh.
Once installed and running, the LEDs light up and the knobs and buttons can be used. The LEDs are bright so you can see them and the knobs in the dark, though not so much as to be distracting. As seen below, the LEDs are either green or red depending on how the fans are being controlled. The three on the left are red, and thus are in automatic mode, and, the three on the right are green, and thus are in manual mode.
