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.

1 out of 5 eggsSentry Mix 2 Fan Controller

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

Pros: Works well -> when it is working.

Cons: First controller started acting-up after a month or so, but not all the time. It would take all six fans to max RPM, and the LED's on the controller face would pulsate. This would last for a few minutes to an hour - unless I rebooted, which usually "fixed" the problem. After many months of this occurring irregularly, the unit ceased to function properly at all. Fans were at 100%, all the time, and nothing I tried would resolve it. Received timely RMA response from NZXT, and a new controller - which immediately failed, with a strong smell of electrical burning.

Other Thoughts: The initial shipping cost from Newegg was free. The first RMA shipping cost was about $10, plus time & travel. Another RMA return of this unit would mean I would spend more than $55 for a $35 controller that might or might not work. I have many other NZXT products, which I will happily purchase again and highly recommend, but common sense and mathematics tell me that another Sentry Mix 2 is a foolish investment.

5 out of 5 eggsNice fan control

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

Pros: 6 fan control, great reviews, slide controls.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I got this for my Rosewill Neutron case, I have 5 fans and the pump for my Corsair h105. This makes it easy to keep my pump at 100% and easily control the 5 fans. This is a m-itx case so my motherboard also only has 2 onboard fan headers, this saves me the headache of having several of my fans on full speed. The leds are not overly bright, which I appreciate. I like have a bit of color without some glaring bright leds.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it, love it, love it!

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

Pros: + Stupid easy to setup
+ 6 fans, not 4 or 5
+ LED changing button for fun
+ Knobs are sturdy and smooth.
+ No clicking feeling.
+ NO LED SCREEN. Thank you!

Cons: -

Other Thoughts: If I wanted to know how fast my fans are spinning, I'd use software to look it up. But who cares? With those LED SCREEN fan controllers, its useless info to keep track of the fan RPMs or % power.


When I start playing a game or start benchmarking, I'll push the knobs to half or maximum speed myself. When I stop, I put them on minimum speed. Simple. This thing does the job, perfectly.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product, 6 fans over 5 is epic win

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

Pros: Nice build quality looks far better over their other models....ive built various builds for friends using the sentry2/sentry LX the only bonus those models provide are profiles(LX) and overall bell and whistly looking led interface....but both control 5 fans max

This controls 6 but has no led fan support which was not an issue for me, since i use noctua fans.

I needed this to replace the fan controller that id rather not trust on the 650d that i have(which controlled 4 fans max).
I got this because my case has 4 intake/exhaust fan options max, and the extra 2 fan controller slots can be used down the road if i ever plan to do a push pull system with my top exhaust 280mm.

Cons: Havent really considered any cons other than the 2 pin connector which could be a problem for led fan users, but again just go with the led/lcd interface of the other controllers why not? Contingency anyways....

Other Thoughts: This is a phenomenal upgrade that will make any system that much better, I run noctua fans and i really dont have any preference for sound due to using headphones. Also my options are simple low fan settings(quiet obviously) for low computing, and high for when my 7990 starts ramping up and im playing games etc. I find no use for fan speeds in between maximum and (efficient).

Also the colors of the led and the nice modest build design, pairs perfectly with my Corsair 650D im even mounting it on my top drive bay So the leds of the fan controller and my hdd and power led are close together for a better look.

This is definitely worth considering if your chassis contains any white leds because it will look natural.

4 out of 5 eggsNot for LED fans

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

Pros: Looks gorgeous in my Corsair Carbide 400R case. Nice quality and lots of length for cables. Flat/gloss finish combo means it will look good with a variety of cases, and the inset face means if it doesn't fit quite flush with the front panel it will be difficult to tell.

Cons: Fan connectors are only 2-pin, though they can hold 3- and 4-pin fans. This means my LED fans won't light up if run through the controller. Had to leave them routed to the mobo. Bummer.

Runs fans at 40-100%, so you can't actually turn fans all the way off when you're doing light-duty work. I have some BitFenix Pro fans that are powerful, and they are still a bit noisy at 40%.

Other Thoughts: I like this component, but since I have several LED fans and don't want to give up the lighting, will probably end up swapping it out at some point for one that will power the lighting as well. Got it for noise control.

5 out of 5 eggsGood

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

Pros: Works. Even though it's PWM, it will control 3-pin fans. It makes noise management easier on me. I don't like setting up stuff through software, so doing it here is much easier.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This product does it's job. It does it well enough I bought a second one for my test-bench. I don't like re-doing my cable times every time I decide I need to re-run something on my test bench.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks cool, questionable quality

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

Pros: - Green color matches my green LED fans, black face matches my black case
- Works just fine to control speeds, 40% minimum is about as low as I'd want them anyway

Cons: - Molex power plugs are kind of bad quality. They use 3 out of the 4 metal pins in the plug, but it has an extra pin placed in there which isn't connected to any wiring.. and it just falls out easily. I thought I broke one of the plugs at first until I saw that pin was just in there for show. Don't do something for show if you're not going to do it right.. docked an egg for it.

Other Thoughts: Runs at full power for the first few seconds of system startup, then runs at your settings, so your system will probably be loud for those first few seconds. Otherwise, does exactly what I wanted it to do.
