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.

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:

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.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

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.
