This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller
Pros: 15 watts per channel
removable fan connectors
can turn off sound and screen
detects failed fans
support for 3 and 4 pin
Cons: only 1 temperature sensor. the Sentry 2 had 5 with 2 extras. You CANNOT control your fans without a temperature sensor plugged in for some reason. So if your sensor dies then youre out of luck.
bad viewing angles. I have my pc on the floor so I cant see what im doing unless I lean all the way back and look at it from the front, luckily I learned how to configure it quickly.
White light bleeds through the 5.25 bay space
Other Thoughts: Overall I highly recommend the Sentry 2 over this. Both have a 2 year warranty both configure 5 fans and can be split, but the sentry 2 offers more temperature sensors, a better viewing angle, is 15$ cheaper, and can also be configured to power fans through molex.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case
Pros: Painted black inside and out
easy cable management
psu dust filter
many fan mounts
no childish led lights
black front panel cables
room for long graphics cards
no front ventilation
Cons: -Doesnt fit an H100. Its just impossible to do it how they designed. It will either run into the memory, a motherboard heatsink, the first 5.25 inch bay, or the thumb screws on the CPU water block itself. I mounted my h100 towards the rear and towards the side panel. I secured it with the ventilation holes. One of the radiator fans (I was running push) couldnt be installed because the cpu block top thumbscrew was in the way so I bought Corsair SP120s, and cut a corner completely off the fan so I can fit it. It looks super ghetto and Corsair could have prevented this by making the case 2mm taller, or atleast could have provided the top fan mounts a little farther from the motherboard.
-No dust filters on side panel or for the bottom fan.
-No rubber grommets
-No usb 2 ports on front
-In order to remove front panel (to clean dust filter) you must remove all 5.25 drives
Other Thoughts: Overall this is an awesome purchase. Ive been building PCs for as long as I can remember. Ive worked in cases of all brands and prices. Antec, Cooler master, Corsair. And this is by far my favorite looking case. I cannot stand the flood of colorful spaceship looking LED riddled cases being sold right now. This case is just gold. I recommend it to anyone who isnt serious about water cooling.READ FULL REVIEW
