    I've never seen the point in controlling the fan's RPM, why reduce how fast it's going? It would be more efficent at it's max speed, thus your CPU/Motherboard chip/GPU etc... Will be cooler.

    Maybe I'm just missing something here?

    The purpose behind this is so that you can control how much noise your system makes. With a controller like this, you can keep the fans at a slower speed when just browsing the Web or doing word processing, but then crank up the speeds again when you get ready for that fun-filled Fragfest.

    More and more people are looking towards quieter cooling solutions for their power rigs. This is a means to that end without having to introduce water into your system. ;)
