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 eggsNeeds more instructions

Pros: Allows you to control 5 fans and speeds to each fan, works great haven't had a problem

Cons: Not even instructions on the manual, lots of people are complaining about the extremely loud beeping after touching every button. Touching the power in the bottom right of the controller turns off ALL beeping.

Other Thoughts: It really does work perfectly fine, it's just that people aren't finding out how to utilize all the features it has, disabling the beeping and dimming the display.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: looks cool, cheap, comes with heat sensors.

Cons: The thing is... what you pay is what you get. When i got it it did everything as advertised. everything worked perfectly... for a couple of months. One day the screen just stopped displaying properly. I could still press the screen and make things work but it was all based on memory and guess work since i cant see the screen. Just spend the extra money and get a controller that wont screen fail on you

5 out of 5 eggsI Like This Controller

Pros: This fan controller works really good, and it looks good on the front of the case. I was always a little hesitant at buying one of the NZXT fan controllers because the NZXT SEN-001LX does not have the great reviews in the world. I went ahead and took a risk and bought this one. I am glad i did. I love the thing. I can place temp probes where i want them.

Cons: It is a very simple controller. You can not set your own fan curves or anything fancy like that, but this is really not a con, but for your information. You can set it to manual, and control fan individually. This is handy for experimenting with temperatures.

Other Thoughts: The one application where this controller will be very good: you bought a computer case that came with fans, but they are not three pin fans? Then use this controller to control your two pin fans. no need to buy a whole bunch of new fans.

2 out of 5 eggsBuy something else

Pros: Fan controller that can control 5 fans and comes with one temperature sensor for each. I also really like how I can turn off the screen.

Cons: I've got a lot of experience with the sensors included and I like how the fans I've got connected are being provided power. The one thing that I'm really missing from this fan controller is the part where you can control the fans...

Oh yeah, and the audible sound it makes whenever you're switching fans or doing pretty much anything on the screen sounds like a full-sized microwave.

Other Thoughts: Needless to say, there are plenty of better, higher quality items you can buy for the same price.

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT Sentry 2

Pros: Easy setup and install, plus it looks cool and does exactly what it's supposed to do. Along with the touchscreen, it has great features such as individual temp monitoring, fan speed, and auto/manual control for each of the 5 fans you connect it to.

Cons: NONE! Don't t second guess yourself.

Other Thoughts: Works like a charm and looks cool to boot.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: -Great design
-Touch Screen
-Black
-up to 5 fans
-temperature display
-both Celsius AND Fahrenheit
-Manual and Automatic
-Loud beeping can be muted
-Extra Heat censors

Cons: -unchangeable color display (not much of a con if you like the white/orange/blue/red thing it has going on)

Other Thoughts: The other thing I would like changed about this is the color layout.. I like more of blue effect. However, for what it does, and for its price, this thing is perfect.

1 out of 5 eggsLED FLICKER!

Pros: Build quality is nice, Looks good too. Unfortunately does not work well.

Cons: LEDS will Constantly Flicker. I have 2 cougar vortex fans that are green. They work fine with anolgoue but with this controller they flicker.

IT is also very very hard to program. I just found out I can not program all fans to run off of the first and only temp probe. I have to use 3 probes on the same location for it to actually work with all my fans!

Another issue is I have the probe on the north bridge heatsinc. The lowest I can assign a temp is 30 degrees. The instruction manual is not very clear. I thought I could handle this but its just trial and error. With LED flicker too.

Other Thoughts: These cheap controllers are silly. Go spend 50 dollars or more on one that connects to the PWM motherboard header or has software fan curves with way easier installation.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Matt,
