5 out of 5 eggsFirst Build Fan Controler

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

Pros: -Easy to install
-3pins
-Looks awsome in Corsair's Carbide SPEC-03 case

Cons: -Would have liked a bit more instructions

Other Thoughts: -At first I pluged my fans ( x4 AF120 red led ) with the 3pins AND the POWER connectors .... Couldn't control the fan speed, tried without the power connectors, and was able to control the fans.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy

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

Pros: Looks nice, pretty easy to use and install. Does what its intended to do.

Cons: I bought two of these about 18 months ago, and now both are broken. The first caught fire about 6 months after I bought them. I was lucky I was home, otherwise it would have destroyed my fiance's PC... and also possibly my apartment.

Despite that I continued to use the 2nd one until recently, about 9 months after purchasing them the 2nd one had the 1st fan controller power short out effectively reducing the amount of fans it could handle by one.

Last week the 2nd channel also burned out, now it can only control 3.

So the lesson learned here is... I bought 2, and they both broke within a year. One is at least stil usable... but I fully intend to replace it with a unit not made by NZXT.

I would never recommend it.

Other Thoughts: I contacted support about the one that caught on fire... they didn't really seem surprised, or particularly apologetic that they could have destroyed my computer and possibly my home.

They offered to replace it, or refund credit... but I mean comon? after one caught on fire... do I really want another one? (and now that 2nd one broke too, absolutely not) and as for credit one catching on fire was enough that I'll never buy from them again.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks, but not without issues.

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

Pros: So, it works. Controls fans and controls them well. Temp reader is accurate, nice design, everything works, but...

Cons: The controller makes the fans buzz. You could argue that the controller doesn't do that with all fans, but I didn't buy the thing to get special fans for it. One final thing, is that one cable slipped out of the connector on the controller board! I was able to slip it back into the connector, but it worries me a little having a cheap cable connecting everything.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We do apologize for the inconvenience, sentry 2 should never cause your fans to emit a buzzing sound in turn to full test out whether it is a the sentry 2 or the fans themselves . We would highly recommend connecting the fans directly to the motherboard just to check if it’s not the controller or the motherboard causing the issue. In the end we can offer a parts replacement for your sentry 2 all we would need you to do is visit our website at www.nzxt.com/support/.Once there you will be able to proceed forward with a request for an RMA. We would also need the invoice on file as we base warranty off the initial date of purchase. If you have any further questions or concerns please let us know.

Regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Controller

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

Pros: This fan controller functions exactly as advertised. The screen looks pretty, and the touchscreen works perfectly so far. I also like that it comes with temp. readers that you can place anywhere in your case that you want, so you can get an accurate understanding of which fans you need to be sure are moving enough air. The interface it simple and easy, once you figure it out.

Cons: The package does not include installation instructions, but anyone with a grain of common sense can figure it out after a minute of inspecting the cables, which are all clearly labeled.

Other Thoughts: Just a heads up, this unit is made of somewhat flimsy feeling plastic on the sides. Not really an issue, you just need to be a bit more careful when installing it. Once it is installed, however, it literally doesn't matter.

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
