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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fan controller

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

Pros: Flat-black color (bezel, inside and black cables), 6-channel, push-button switchable colors for the front light indicators, price. The inside tray is enough to hide the cables if you want. The controller sliders are very smooth and responsive for tiny adjustments. I know NZXT make a lot of different fans, so they knew what they were doing on this controller.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I put this in a Corsair carbide 300r windowed case for a flawless match. I set the front color LED's to match the green case fans i put in it. Didn't measure exact RPM's but it will take the fans from whisper quiet on low, to full blast on high. I did measure about a 30w load difference on my UPS with all six fans going from low to high. It didn't come with any screws, but I used the black cd-rom screws that came with the Corsair case. It will require 2 molex connections to it from your power supply, which is reasonable considering. I couldn't be happier.

5 out of 5 eggsUseful for manual voltage-based fan control

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

Pros: Easy to install and connect to my 6 case fans with 4-pin PWM connectors, and cables are long enough to easily reach fans throughout the case.

Configurable LED backlight, with 5 colors and an off setting.

Fits well in the drive bay slot, and sliders are recessed enough that they do not prevent the door on the front of my case from closing.

Fan control is straightforward, and does not require navigating any menus and there are no software dependencies. The sliders feel nice. They slide smoothly, but have enough resistance to hold their position once set.

Minimalistic look that goes well my my Thermaltake Urban T31 case.

Cons: Doesn't actually use PWM to control fans (see other thoughts), though they still seem to work fine.

The backlit numbers under each slider are fairly useless. All 6 are always on (if configured to be on). It would be nice if they would turn off when a fan is not plugged in to a slot or if a fan has failed.

Other Thoughts: I am very satisfied with this fan controller so far. Balancing noise and cooling in different situations was a major issue with my last build, and this helps to solve that problem nicely.

I bought a set of PWM-capable fans to use with this controller, only to find that that this was unnecessary. Only 2 of the 4 pins are used and fans are controlled by voltage, from around 5V at the lowest setting to 12V at the highest. Everything still works as expected though, and as a plus, this means it should work just as well with non-PWM fans (with 3-pin connectors).

This is explained by a note on the instruction sheet, which says, "PWM 4-pin sized connectors are used to accept all fans, however the fans are controlled by voltage. It is normal for there to only be 3 pins in the 4-pin connector."

The fans run at full speed for a few seconds while booting, then return to the configured setting.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

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

Pros: Simple design 6 channel , works well, looks good and was cheap. Easy to install .

Cons: I knew it was plastic , plastic sucks

Other Thoughts: I wanted a cheap 6 channel fan controller to manage noise.
This dose the job well.

I hear people complain about the sliders not turning up the fans beyond half position on slider. That is because the fan voltage limit has exceeded and it has nothing to do with the controller. Pay attention to the rmp speed and max voltage . all fans are different. I am using 12 volt fans with 2100 rmp and I get full range to max with this fan controller. If you use a 7, or 5 volt fan then the slider will seem to stop turning up the fan at half way as the fan has peaked its rated voltage . PAY ATTENTION TO SPECS :)

4 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Easy to install
Fan headers are labeled

Cons: Wires were not clamped tightly on the molex prongs - installed into a different computer, and while testing the system, the molex was hanging down. I noticed one of the wires (#3) was not in the molex connector, but the fans continued to work.

Overall, the build quality is poor.

Other Thoughts: Works well, but I don't use it anymore since I am using a newer motherboard that doesn't run all my fans at 100%.

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT SEN-MIX2 Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller

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

Pros: I have this controller running 11 fans and 2 pumps in my case. (yes I do have 3 fans hooked up to 1 channel and 2 on every other) and it works great.
30W per channel is pure overkill so you probably can't ever hook up too many fans. I originally was going to buy 2 fan controllers but this one was powerful enough to do the job by itself.
Matches the LED lighting in my case perfectly (bitfenix and cougar green LEDs)
Looks great, easy to use and feel quality.

Cons: Molex power connectors are much like any molex i've ever used, cheap and with un-aligned pins. Its a molex, the're all like that.

Other Thoughts: I trust NZXT for my personal computer, their products have always been high quality with attractive appearance in one.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat simple product

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

Pros: Easy installation, was done within 10-20 minutes, looks great matching my matte black case.

Cons: No PWM support, didn't need it anyways.
Sliders feel cheap and will tilt a bit.

Other Thoughts: Definitely worth $30. Would buy again for another system.

5 out of 5 eggslooks good

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

Pros: Very smooth action and tight fit

Cons: one of the power wires was not retained in the connector to the board. Not a big deal just required a little bending of the tab. Unfortunately I did not try anything until I had the case re assembled and everything re connected
