Thermaltake Commander F5 Multi Fan Controller Closer Look:
Installation of the Commander F5 was as straightforward as it can get with the exception of a single detail: the 100mm (~4 inch) Molex power connector. This plug just barely extended far enough to hide out of sight next to my drive bays and I can't imagine anyone who would rather have it this short versus a more reasonable length. Each of the fan output wires was a much more reasonable 600mm (roughly 24 inches) and should easily reach any fan in any non-monster case.
The fan sliders themselves are extremely smooth and easy to move – a light touch is all that is needed to adjust. The blue LEDs highlight which fans are being controlled (in this case channel four is disconnected) and the red LED indicates that power is being received properly. Overall the installation went through without a hitch with the exception of the annoyingly short power cable!
