The other thing I noticed when setting mine up recently is that it helps to have stuff in your freezer. I got a new freezer and new temp. controller and wanted to get it up and running right away. Was seeing pretty wild swings on an empty freezer as the cooling would overshoot my mark by 4-5 degrees. But, Once I put several cased of beer in there (until I had a couple fermenters to put in there) the temps stayed much more steady.

Ivd heard that about chest freezers. From my understaning people will put a CPU fan somwhere in the freezer to circulate the air. This will give you a more consistent temp throughout your freezer
