4 out of 5 eggsGood fan controller

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Really nice fan controller with a pretty good touch screen (Feels like an audio unit touch screen in a car). Easy to use, easy to install.

Cons: Lots of cables. Hard to do a perfect cable management with the non-removable cable on the unit. The sensors are acting weird sometime. Jumping for 24c to 30c then go back for 24c in 1 second. Still tell you the right temps (tested with various sources of heat).

Other Thoughts: I bought this because i knew it'd be easy to use with my PC on the desk. I recommand it !

3 out of 5 eggsgood product, but not perfect.

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: -bright (but not too bright) LCD display
-very responsive to touch commands
-reads out in C and F scales
-comes with 2 extra thermal probes
-can read 5 temps at a time, thought the temps are a little skewed
-Molex and 3pin power on each channel
-Display can be dimmed

Cons: -makes some fans slightly louder
-does not run fans below 40%
-only type of power input is molex
-tape for thermal sensors isn't very sticky and is basically useless.

Other Thoughts: great product for taking control of your fans and adding more then your motherboard will support, but its not perfect. Also the thermal sensors are very hard to place, so often readings are a little off. I mean maybe its just me, but where are you supposed to put them? there isn't exactly a designed spot.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We do appreciate the feedback that you have given us. What I can say in response is that some fans will be louder than others, it is totally dependent on the fan and the structure of the fan. Also the theoretical cut off is 40% which was implemented into the sentry 2’s firmware. All fans that do run below 4 or 5 watts will shut off. If you have any further questions or concerns or any issues regarding your fan controller feel free to visit support.nzxt.com or you call us directly at +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

3 out of 5 eggssomewhat served its purpose

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: does what it say controls fan speed though i think the auto portion does not function very well if I turn the computer on and right away switch to manual the fan will start running at 60, 70 even 90% so that part does not work well and i think they should do a you tube video on temp probe placement that would help with install

Cons: long wires, no directions on temp probe (proper placement), and unless you want your fans running high all the time don't use auto one last thing in manual if you run the fans on low (40%) there is this annoying low voltage sound that is the only way i can explain that

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We do apologize but as for the directions on thermal probe placing it is always recommended to place it near or behind the CPU. Which the fans can ramp up if needed or slow down to supply sufficient cooling to your case. If the noise sounds like a whining noise we would guarantee it is a bad bearing on one of your fans. If you have any further questions or concerns please let us know you can contact us at +1-800-228-9395. Also you can proceed to support.nzxt.com and at the top right you will see a submit request tab. This will allow you to submit a ticket and which we would be able to respond to.
Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

2 out of 5 eggsNeeds Big Improvements.

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: *Good Quality
*Can Be Silenced from Beeping
*Retains Settings on Power Loss
*5 3/4 Pin Hookups with Adapters
*5 Thermometers

Cons: *Alarm Beeps for No Reason Despite Being 30 degrees below warning temp
*Skips from 0 to 40% Fan SPeed
*Doesn't work with my led fans. Can not provide enough power on automatic to make it light up.
* Have to repeatedly tap to push buttons
* Randomly resets when I reboot my computer about 10% of the time
*

Other Thoughts: I would buy the third generation. If I could, I would exchange it for the newer version because this thing keeps resetting. Occasionally will say Fahrenheit on the Celsius scale and vice versa. This has only occurred twice. Back light on thermometer makes it very hard to see during the day. Save your money. Would return but my 30 days just passed.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We greatly appreciate the feedback on our sentry 2 fan controller, the controller should not be restarting automatically with the system rebooting. What I would recommend is visiting support.nzxt.com at the top right you can submit a ticket. Which we would be able to further troubleshoot your issue. Also if it does sub come to it having to be RMA’d we would be able to assist you with that option as well.
Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsStill Going Good

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: I own five of these in five different machines. All of them for a little over a year now. I am very happy with them. They are simple controllers, but are great for what they are. Great way to control fans that are either 2-pin or 3-pin.

Cons: May not be the fault of the controller, but some fans won't start with these.

Other Thoughts: The temperature reading will bounce all over if your power supply is not stable. They don't read out RPM.

2 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Its neat. It reads the temperature.

Cons: I'm not actually sure it does anything. I can't seem to make changes. Its neat to show me the temperature in 5 different spots though, but it seems the fans are always on 100% regardless of what the device says.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We deeply appreciate the feedback on our Sentry 3, if the fan speeds do not change even when selecting different profiles I would highly recommend visiting our support.nzxt.com. With this you would be able to submit a request at the top right and proceed forward for an RMA. If you have any issues or concerns please feel free to contact us at +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks nice

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Nice looking user interface. Easy to use and install. Comes with temperature nodes to monitor temps throughout your case.

Cons: Each fan connector comes with a standard 3 pin fan connector and a 4 pin molex. Makes for a nasty rats nest to try to hide in the back of the case.
