Pros: Touch Screen, Matte black, 5 channels

The point of a fan controller is to be able to adjust fan to the user's preferred speeds. Well that's not what this fan controller does. For some odd reason, it will keep my fans at 500RPM on manual, but will just ramp them up to 1700RPM at random. Worst of all, this pattern loops. Fans go down to 500RPM for 5 seconds, goes back up to 1700RPM. I've read the manual and did research, everything is how it should be.
