5.25in. Touchscreen Fan Controller

Introducing the Sentry 2, a full system fan controller with an advanced touchscreen interface. Sentry 2 easily installs in a 5.25in. bay and is compatible with any fan that uses voltage control. The innovative touch screen features ultra fast selection and response time and displays all pertinent info including temperature readout in both Celsius and Fahrenheit. Sentry 2 allows users to control up to five fans with the option for manually tuning individual fan speeds or letting the automatic controls take over to correspond to a specific temperature. The controller's advanced functionality sounds an alarm to alert the user should the temperature exceed a preset amount and stores saved settings even after it is turned off. Designed to maximize efficiency, the Sentry 2 supports 10W per channel and creates less heat than traditional temperature displays.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Cheap Fan controller

Pros: It looks pretty cool with the display all light up.
Controls 5 fans with 5 thermal probes (I would not hook up high power fans to this though)
It's cheap
The fan wires use a flat ribbon cable, great for managing cables.

Cons: The menu sound sounds like an old school microwave

The UI could be a bit more intuitive (I kept touching the fan number thinking it would switch to that fan number, but no, the fan icon is what is supposed to be touched).

The display flickers in brightness sometimes when handling lower loads.

It will rapidly switch between 40-50% speed in a loop sometimes for a small 1-2 degree change. I can't tell if that's bad for the PC fans or now.

The box has another two spare probes, but you can't really swap out the probes due to how they are installed on the controller / the flat ribbon cable holds them all together.

The fan controlled headers are molex and 3 pin, which may clutter your case up. I would have preferred to have 3 pin only ends though.

Other Thoughts: I installed one and have it controlling 5 weak standard case fans. It controls all of them automatically with no problem.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks cool

Pros: -Looks really cool
-Isn't 'too' bright at night (I have LED fans anyway...)
-Individual fan control
-Comes with 5 temperature probes for individual fan monitoring (neat!)
-touch screen with easy to read display (My computer is 8 feet away from where I sit -I use a 50" TV and wireless keyboard- so the large numbers help me read the temps from a distance)
-VERY fast shipping as always "Thanks Newegg!"

Cons: -I could do without the beeping being so loud
-The touch screen isn't 'exact' so I often hit the wrong thing, no big deal.
-Minimal operation is set to 40% speed. With my other controller (which is just a boring old knob) I could go down to 10%, which helps when you are ignorant and buy a 2,400 RPM fan assuming that 40 decibels isn't very loud. I have some Noctuas on the way though, so that won't be a problem for very long.
-I have a Sentey Optimus Extreme case, and the fan controller sits a tiny bit cockeyed in it. I blame the case though, it looks neat, but isn't the most well made one on the market (some of the metal was bent on arrival, meh).

Other Thoughts: I purchased this within 5-10 minutes of buying two Noctua fans (NF-F12 and NF-S12B) from [well-known online retailer A], since they were a few bucks cheaper than NewEgg. This was Friday, just after midnight. Monday afternoon my NZXT Sentey 2 arrives, awesome. Today is Wednesday and I checked my [retailer A] Account... both my fans are STILL in California. 5 days later and they haven't even left the state that they were shipped from. In the future I will ALWAYS purchase from NewEgg, even if it costs me an extra couple bucks. I have had 4-5 packages so far from this site, and they all arrived in 2-3 days, even with the cheapest/ free shipping option. THANKS NEWEGG!!!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing controller

Pros: incredible price
control over your fan
temperature over view

Cons: Since I have less than 5 fans it would had been fun to let me plug the wire I needed only since it take space and can look a bit messy.

Other Thoughts: Don't expect something magic from this controller, it does what it does, adjust fan speed and show the temperature. There is also a auto mod but I prefer manually put my fan level depending of the noise vs airflow I want.
