4 out of 5 eggsWorks great, but low viewing angle

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: - Works great as a fan controller
- Can connect the 3pin/4pin Fans directly to the controller without using the out of the box extension cords

Cons: - Thermal Sensor cable is a bit short, I'd rather have a slightly longer cable so that I can tuck the cable away nicely, instead of it dangling around.
- The display is not readable at all if you're case is sitting on the floor. The viewing angle is maybe 30degrees.

4 out of 5 eggsAesthetically pleasing

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: This controller is easy to use, and best of all will not empty your wallet.

The controller allows for up to five fans, and also has a thermal sensor that you can mount anywhere, though you will likely mount it next to the CPU.

The best feature of this controller, aside from the easy to read interface, is the ability to link multiple fans into one group, and control them in the push of one button.

Cons: The only real con, is during installation.
This controller has short sides, that do not always go back far enough to be locked into place by the new "quick lock" systems case manufacturers put in place.

You will likely have to screw it into place on both sides.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Good

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Very good product, never had any big problems with it except a minor one. This has lasted me for more than a year without any hastle.

Highly recommend this product if you want a fan controller.

Cons: One of the pins of the cables if loose so I have to hold it in place very tight for it to make a proper connection with the power supply.

Other than that, very good product!

Other Thoughts: Very excellent product and highly recommend it to anyone who wants a fan controller for the price.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks most of the time

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: it looks cool and works most of the time.

Cons: out of the blue one channel will ramp high from my setting. If i turn that channel off and then back on it will go back how it should be. Very unhappy with this product. I should RMA it.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Looked nice for the 2 days it worked.

3 out of 5 eggsdoes what it says.

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: looks better in person than it does in pictures.
can connect all my fans to it.
tells me how hot my gpu is getting when im in game without having to leave the game.

Cons: about a millimeter or two gap both on top and bottom of face plate so i can see inside my pc wile looking at it.
is about 15-20 degrees of at all times so that kinda sucks. (see other thoughts.)

Other Thoughts: i read some other reviews that said if i attatched it to the gpu that it would break and didnt want to take any chances so i attatched the temp probe to my heat sink and not the actual gpu.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT Technologies Sentry 3

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: This fan controller is the perfect addition to my desktop computer. I purchased this to control two Thermaltake 120mm fans and six Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm fans. In fact I brought three of these fan controllers for three computers.

Cons: The screen itself can be difficult to see from an angle, but that's not really news and was expected. The temperature probe leaves a lot to be desired. I'm not sure how they had expected the probe to "stick" to the components with the tape provided (Scotch tape works better). I placed the temperature probe on the overhanging edge of the copper plate on the bottom of the water cooler next to the CPU. I do realize that no external temperature probe is going to be accurate. When my CPU hits 50 degrees Celsius the reading is 37 degrees Celsius on this fan controller. So I programmed fans to be full on at 37 degrees Celsius. I'm not going to knock any eggs off because this fan controller controls the fans.

Other Thoughts: 1. NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller
2. Thermaltake Water 3.0 Performer All-In-One Liquid Cooling System CLW0222
3. GMC Y20 Perfect II Stylish High Performance computer case
4. Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Blue LED Silent Fan

3 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Looks nice, get what you get from a fan controller

Cons: Not one 4-Pin Molex connector for fans. No good, Tossed it. No use of watsing my time sending it back

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

NZXT Support.
