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.

4 out of 5 eggscheap for something that looks sexy

Pros: makes fans quiet. fans dont need to be running on full speed so i put them down a bit. makes a huge difference in sound.
makes any computer look sexay

Cons: as others have stated, theres no such thing as a fan going 10-30%.it just goes down from 40 to 0.
instructions unclear with what to do with some of the extra cables and thermo readers given.

2 out of 5 eggsLacking Control in Auto

Pros: Allows temperature sensing and manual control of up to 5 individual sensors and fans.

Cons: For auto control, you are unable to set low and high speed temperature points along with their fan speeds. Only uses some unknown, un-settable, pre-set temperature points and fan speeds. Cannot have some fans manual control and others on auto. The manual is very unclear on these issues.

Other Thoughts: The product would be much better if the auto mode had selectable low/high temperature points and fans speeds.
As is, it will not work in my application.
And being able to have some fans manually controlled while others auto controlled would help.

4 out of 5 eggsSolved my Problem

Pros: I was able to quiet down the fans in my HTPC/Gaming PC.
Using this in a Silverstone Grandia GD06. My Motherboard only had 1 or 2 case fan headers and I have 5 case fans in this Beast. Now when using this is a HTPC I am able to dial back the fans to 40% and it is near quiet. And when I am gaming I ramp them up full bore 100%!

Cons: Instructions are worthless, you will need to watch a youtube video on how to operate the darn thing.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks but cheap

Pros: Works, has 3 pin & molex connectors, easy to use,somewhat accurate temperature reads, low price.
It's fully operational and is powering 5 fans with somewhat accurate temp reads. Awesome for those who don't mind cheap or have a tight budget.

Cons: If i would have known how cheaply made it was gonna be i would not have purchased it. it took me over an hour to get this fan controller to work. It also came with a bird's nest of cables. I had to bend some of the pins in the main molex power connector just to get it to work. A couple of the 3 pin connectors even had a pin come out. Seriously? I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS ITEM unless you are on a tight budget. I had the funds for a higher end product but i decided that i wanted to save money. you would be smart to look past the attractive price point of 25$ because you get what you pay for. Overall difficult & frustrating experience with this product

2 out of 5 eggsdisappointed

Pros: Screen looks cool and does turn fans on

Cons: Cant switch it to manual. says you can but it doesnt work. so my fans stay at 60% no matter what. Living in fl that doesnt work well. Need 100% gaming and most can be off while just watching movies.

Other Thoughts: if it worked it would be great.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great,

Pros: Extremely simple to install, Makes your case look sweet with a backlit screen, gives you the ability to add and control fans if you don't have anymore onboard space, or want to control those pesky molex fans, gives you the Ambient temperature readings of your case, but read my cons for that.

Cons: For some reason the temp readings was all over the place on my older, louder cx430 PSU. But after switching to a higher rated evga 750 g2, it was stable and more solid. I also read someone else in the reviews mention this, but it isn't a big enough deal to render the item useless or anything.

Other Thoughts: All in all, it is cheap without lacking quality, and definitely worth getting.

2 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: Looks nice.
Easy to customize.
Set up was easy.
When it worked it was great.

Cons: After about six months of use, any time the internal temperature of the case starts going up the controller cuts power to the fans!

If you nudge the wires leading to the fan it typically will regain connection, however that is not a long term fix as it always goes back out a bit later. Basically when you need the fans on the most, they turn off. Cannot rely on them to stay on.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Looks good, easy to install, and easy to use. Give you the ability to control 5 fans either automatically or manually. Provides temperature at five points in your case. Can be set for either Celsius or Fahrenheit.

Cons: Instructions are not very detailed. There are a couple of videos online that will explain the operation of the controller. I would recommend watching them.

Other Thoughts: There are some small "quirks" with this controller that should be in the instructions yet are not. For instance like to change between functions you have to press and hold the button for 3 seconds. This makes sense once you are aware of how it works. It would have been nice to have this information in the instructions.

While the controller provides a temperature at five point in your case. To see the temperature you must have the fan selected, the controller does not provide an average temperature.

As others have noted the the beeping is quite loud, but it can be turned off by pressing the power button shortly. Once again this is not in the instructions but in the online videos.
