5 out of 5 eggsDoes The Job Well

This review is from: NZXT SEN-MIX2 Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller

Pros: You can change the LED on it and remember the color setting every boot up. Sliders work well for controlling fan speeds.

Cons: You can't lower the fan speeds to (I want to say) below 40%. Sometimes I want to lower my fan speeds lower when I'm just browsing the web and stuff to generate less noise and dim my fan's LEDs.

Other Thoughts: This is a good product. It doesn't really have any bells or whistles so if you're looking for more advanced tech I'd shy away from this.

4 out of 5 eggsdoes what it says

This review is from: NZXT SEN-MIX2 Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller

Pros: works well. easy to install and it certainly does allow me to speed up and slow down my fans. I ordered 2 of these. not using all of the fan connectors in one system, but I am in the other. no problems with any of the fan connectors not working.

Cons: just wish it would allow you to make the fans go even slower, but the range in general for all my types/max rpm fans is pretty good.

Other Thoughts: both plus and minus, it comes wit a lot of cable, each fan connector cable is pretty long. it's good because you can get your fan to reach it no matter how big your case is and how far away the fan is from the controller, but it also means that there is usually a lot of excess cable to wrap up.

5 out of 5 eggsMix2

This review is from: NZXT SEN-MIX2 Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller

Pros: Great unit. Does exactly as its spose to do. All bars stay perfectly level. And its a breeze to change colors. Just push the button on the left to select desired color and thats it. you can even turn it off completely. All are solid black flat cables. Even the molex. No colored wires here folks!

Cons: None. Just get it. And its cheap!

Other Thoughts: Great and effective. NZXT just seems to do things right, and at a bargain price.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple yet effective

This review is from: NZXT SEN-MIX2 Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller

Pros: Bought this fan controller to manually control all the fans in my case, 8 in total. I ran splitters for my cpu cooler that is a Corsair H110. Two 140mm top and bottom. No problems at all. Plus the color options are always a nice touch no matter what color your build is. SO glad I bought this one.

Cons: There is a lot of wires that come with this unit. Not really a con since my case has plenty of space on that side, but regular cases that are not split down the middle to keep a clean looking build could have a messy situation.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a PWM controller

This review is from: NZXT SEN-MIX2 Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller

Pros: This "controls" 4-pin fans in that it will control them by varying the voltage on the 12V lead. So, I guess its description is technically accurate, albeit this is also how 3-pin fans are controlled.

Cons: This is exactly how 3-pin fans are controlled. If you have 4-pin fans you would like controlled using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) on the 4th pin, you cannot do that with this controller.

Other Thoughts: The explosion of 4-pin fans in the marketplace has led to an explosion of 3-pin fan controllers (voltage modulation) advertising 4-pin functionality. This controller is not capable of pulse width modulation.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We appreciate the feedback on our MIX 2 fan controller, the mix 2 can control both 3 and 4 pin fans so the issue has to be with another component. If you can please visit support.nzxt.com and at the top right you will see a submit request tab. Please post your type of fans that you are using so we can diagnose the error. If you have any troubles at all submitting a request please feel free to contact us at +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for case cooling!

This review is from: NZXT SEN-MIX2 Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller

Pros: I have 3 of them on my case for 22 fans (Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra case) and work as advertised. Two of them have 3 Silverstone CPF01 PWM Fan Splitter Cable on each for 3 additional fans on each controllers and I don't have any problem yet. Nice leds, 4 connector pins, fair price and nothing other to say than it's perfect for me!

I'm an happy costumer and I would surely buy it for a next build.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsNice unit bogus power connectors.

This review is from: NZXT SEN-MIX2 Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller

Pros: -Very nice unit, sleek design.
-Can change 5 different colors.
-Powers six fans.
-Works fine.

Cons: -Totally bogus 4 pin Molex power connectors, extremely cheap. (There are 2)
-One power pin (the ground pin) slipped completely out so I had to shove it back in, seems to work... But still upsetting for a nice unit to have such terribly cheap and awful connectors.

Other Thoughts: I would have gladly given a 5 star review if NZXT atleast put some decent molex 4 pin connectors in the unit.
If it were possible I would give a 3 1/2 egg review but 4 is just too nice for such careless workmanship.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, NZXT Valued Customer

We deeply apologize for the issue with your Sentry mix 2 if the issue is due to the molex connector. We would be able to assist you with an RMA. All we would need you to do is visit support.nzxt.com and submit a request at the top right, also if you can upload your invoice that would be greatly appreciated as well. You can also contact us directly at 1-800-228-9395.
Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsJust What I Needed

This review is from: NZXT SEN-MIX2 Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller

Pros: Low power consumption and does exactly what it should. Feels well made and has a nice weight to it. Can manually and quickly adjust through multiple colour settings, which was mildly important for my setup.

Cons: Not a true con, but the form factor did not play well in my case. Nothing a little know-how could not fix, but it is a tight fit indeed.

Other Thoughts: I like this little bit of tech and would recommend for any case that does not have in-built fan controllers.
