5 out of 5 eggs Misunderstood and Maligned 06/22/2012

This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller

Pros:

-Gorgeous! This is probably the prettiest addition you will ever make to any computer case.
-Fan control is intuitive
-Temperature sensors are small, easily hidden and accurate
-Alarm is almost too quiet
-Automatic fan control works very well. Manual is fine, but if you don’t know what your doing you can ruin a fan by overdriving it.

Cons:

-A whole lot of wires going on.
-Provided tape for the temp sensors doesn't work.

Other Thoughts:

This is one of those case mods that takes T I M E to do properly. Get a cup of coffee, strip your case down to bare metal, wash it thoroughly and take your time putting this in. Once the cables are dressed and taped down (use cloth gaffers tape, black- if you can find it- it’s sticky as duct tape but made of cloth and disappears inside a black case) you'll have a thing of beauty. Place the sensors by the appropriate fan intakes (not outflow) so your readings mean something. Install, when done properly, should take a few hours. But once it’s done you’ll really have something nice. NZXT has been improving this product over the years and you can see their missteps documented in the older reviews. I am glad I waited to buy this, because the product is fairly well perfected. I’d recommend this to anyone who 1: wants a really cool looking functional mod and 2: has the patience to install it properly.
