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.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Product

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

Pros: I got this to reduce the noise level of the six case fans I put in my new computer, which at full speed sounded kind of like a Beechcraft inside a maintenance hanger. With the controller installed they now run whisper quiet throttled back to 40%.

Installation was quite simple and intuitive, the wires are all plainly labelled, and it would be difficult to mess this up. A chimp on ritalin could install this thing.

Works great with both 3-pin and 4-pin fans. The LEDs give a nice look to the front of the case.

Cons: This does add a lot of additional wiring inside the case. I have a modular power supply and had hoped to be able to lose the molex harness, but this thing requires two molex connectors for power, so no joy there. It does say that in the item specs, I just wasn't paying close enough attention.

Not worth taking an egg in any event.

Other Thoughts: Some reviewers have mentioned this as being a greyish color rather than a true black. Mine is a nice matte black that matches the case perfectly. This may just be a case of different batch runs in the plastic molding. So, luck of the draw.

4 out of 5 eggsNZXT Fan Controller

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

Pros: Working great. Installed to control the fans on a Cool Master Nepton 140 CPU Water Cooler. AM2+ motherboard had only one 4 pin slot, which was used by the water pump. The 3 pin fan slots made the cooler fans run at full RPM (Very Noisy). Allowed me to lower the fans speed to acceptable noise level.

Cons: Would be nice to have RPM readouts of fan speeds, however the price was right.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

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

Pros: - Reliable
- Knobs feel nice with smooth action
- Moddable (can remove casing and wires not being used)
- Convenient fan control

Cons: - Could be more aesthetically pleasing. It looks pretty good but it's a lighter shade of black which causes it to stick out from my black case.
- Color button could benefit from "off" option

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't fit in my case because it was obstructed by water cooling unit. I was able to unscrew the front plate along with the board and wiring from the plastic shell and insert it directly into my case. Taped it in. Glad I didn't have to send it back.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Fan Controller

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

Pros: I have had this fan controller since October. I purchased it because I went custom cooling and needed 7 fans for my three radiators in my 750D. I have all 7 fans connected (one is using a "Y" fan splitter).

The lights are the fans are a plus, but not really needed in my opinion. They do add some "Bang" though!

BLACK CABLES!!! Thank you NZXT! I previously owned the Sentry 2 Fan Controller (the touch screen one), and they had standard red, black, and yellow cables. They were absolutely ugly. I had the Sentry 2 when I owned the Corsair C70 case, so you could see them routed through my case. But now that I have a 750D, they can't really be seen, but it is still a plus for the black cables.

You can probably connect 18+ fans on this controller (using 3 fan "Y" cables).

Cons: Non really. But it would have been nice if they didn't make drive bay part so long... Maybe half or less would have been nice. I own an XSPC RX360 Radiator (thick radiator), so in my case I can't have a drive bay in the top spot. I'm thinking about cutting it in half, so that way I can place it in the top, and have room for a DVD Drive. (Does any of this make sense?)

Other Thoughts: I am not sure if this information is correct, but I think I know how to tell the RPM of the fans. If you see on the front of the fan controller grill, you can see a bunch of different lines lined up on each knob (lever). When the knobs are on the lowest, they run at 40%, and max, 100% (duh!). But every line is 10%. I keep my fans around the 60-70% which is roughly 1000RPM for my fans (XSPC stock fans, but im going to upgrade to SP120 Quiet).

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected.

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

Pros: 1) Does exactly as advertised
2) Very good price (I paid $29.99)
3) Fit nice and snug into my chassis
4) Cords are all in perfect working order
5) Sliders are smooth (yet firm) and responsive
6) No longer have to rely on dumb BIOS regulated fans!

7) And best of all, looked way cooler than the picture was as advertised. The picture showed it as being a sort of lame gray color but turned out to be much darker (black?)

Cons: None, this was a killer purchase. Super happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone.

Other Thoughts: Killer purchase. Solid product.
