5 out of 5 eggsWorks As Expected !

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

Pros: It works exactly like you would expect!
Nice touch response, easy menu & nice looks

Cons: It'd be nice to have sleeved cables since you have about 40 feet of cables in there (not 40 feet but alot)

Other Thoughts: Does it's job !

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

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

Pros: Works very well with my case fans.
Looks really cool.
Easy interface once you figure it out.

Cons: Not any serious cons. Installation was somewhat tedious and wire management out of the box is somewhat poor. By poor I mean there's a lot of wires coming from this thing and tends to get tangled up in the machine. Along with that the interface is a little confusing at first and the manual is not helpful at all. But its simple once you figure it out. Also as other reviews have mentioned its compatible with 3-pin plugs and has some molex plugs. This wasn't a issue in my case but its something to consider if you have fans with different pins.

Other Thoughts: Overall despite my long explanation of cons I do recommend this product. It works very well and looks very cool and is worth the price.

2 out of 5 eggsled fans flicker

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

Pros: looks cool

Cons: i had this controller for the purpose of running 5 fans at some point. i ran just 2 fans off of it for a while but recently i added 3 more and in turn all fans running off this controller flicker at the same time about 2 to 3 seconds apart. sucks because it is very distracting other than that it has ben a cool piece of hardware in my rig.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Valued NZXT Customer,

We do apologize for the inconvenience, we are sad to hear that your product is pulsating and emitting an instant flicker through the LED Display. If you would simply visit our website at www.nzxt.com/support and fill out a ticket so we can proceed with replacing your unit for you. Also we would need an invoice uploaded for replacement, if you could please supply us with that piece of documentation that would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
NZXT Support

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of garbage: Noisy pulsating fans

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

Pros: -Looks
-Controls
-price
-installation

Cons: - This controller makes fans run much noisier even for the lower speeds, with fans with leds you could easily see fan revolutions changings with pulsations of leds and fan rotation: that is not as much annoying as the noise level for the lowest speeds, compared against a regular knob like fan controller and mobo control: HUGE difference, also would probably decrease fans lifespan, and is not able to run fans as as slow as the mobo could.

Other Thoughts: Really tried very hard to keep this Fan controller in my tower because of the eexcellent looks and functionality and because of the great price I got it for (15 bucks on aybay) mounted it and unmounted it 3 times, and every time I got fed up with fan rattling even at their lowest speeds. probably cheap circuitry.

Excellent looks I wish they upgrade the circuitry inside for more robust one.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Valued NZXT Customer,

We do apologize for the inconvenience, it’s very astonishing to hear that the Sentry 2 is causing your fans to emit an audio disturbance. What we would highly recommend is testing the Sentry 2 on a test bench or a case matching the same form factor as your current case, with a completely different set of fans as well. This step will rule out the fact that it is not the Sentry 2, but another possible factor being the fans within your present case. None the less we would happily replace the unit to rule out the fact it being the controller itself. All we would need you to do is visit our website at www.nzxt.com/support and fill out a ticket. With that being said we would need you to supply an invoice for proof of purchase. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact our support team at +1-800-228-9395.

Regards,
NZXT Support

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent product

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

Pros: It can handle all the fans in my case just fine.

Cons: It's not compatible with 4-pin fans.

Other Thoughts: I bought this when all my case fans used 3-pin connections, but I just recently replaced one with a new fan that used 4 pins. I found that I couldn't connect it to the fan controller, so I moved it to another spot and connected it to the motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsNice addition to any case

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

Pros: This is a nice little accessory to look at on the front of your case. Controls up to 5 fans pretty easily. Has both min 4 pin and molex connectors on each controller cable. Has 5 separate temperature sensors that you can place anywhere on the inside of you case. All the cables are labeled with numbers so you know which ones are for which fan. Make sure you set them up in some sort of order based on the layout of your case if you want to keep track of which one you are turning up. Either that or write it down. As far as the auto setting goes, it seems to set them based on the temperature, so place the sensors close to the fan it is controlling. Touch screen is pretty responsive to the touch. Easy readout.

Cons: The tape they give you to secure the temperature sensors really sucks. After I stuck it, it never seems to hold too well and with the slightest tug it would pull right off. This should be the last thing you secure in the case due to this. Doesn't give any indication that you pushed one of the touch screen controls. The only problem this causes is when you want to turn it off or reset it, you have no idea if you pushed the button or not, so you have to hope you did and wait until some action happens.

Other Thoughts: This is pretty much just for looks. Sure it lets you turn your fans up and down depending on how you are using your computer, but the motherboard should be all you really need. It is nice if you don't have enough mini 4 pin connectors on your board because this will give you at least 5. Recommended for any PC enthusiast.

3 out of 5 eggsCheaply made

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

Pros: - Nice display
- Easy manual selection
- Fan connectors don't require second connection to power (just 1 connection to the sentry controller)
- Decent wire length of connections and readers

Cons: - Cheaply made plastic everyone (not metal!)
- Fan connectors are male only therefore fans must have a female connection
- Difficult to place temp readers without detecting air/fans vs component heat

Other Thoughts: Don't like the plastic build. It's very very flimsy and small. If it's supposed to fit into a 5.25" bay, at least make the sides the length of a 5.25" bay so it secures in properly. Temp readers will take some experimenting to find the right placement.
