This Zalman fan resistor (ZM-RC56) is used to slow down any sized standard 12V case fan with a 3-pin connector. The voltage is reduced to 7V in order to slow down the fan speed and reduce fan noise. This small, inexpensive resistor also creates a 3.5″ extension to your cable length, while also saving space for other important components of your system. The ZM-RC56 is a simple and cost effective way to quiet your system.
Zalman ZM-RC56 Cautionary Note:
The Zalman ZM-RC56 slows down the fan speed which also reduces the air flow. Although this is usually not an issue, it could possibly cause an overheating issue if there is not adequate airflow. Please make sure that you will have enough airflow for your system before purchasing this Zalman fan resistor.
