This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller
Does what it should.
Touch is responsive.
Fairly intuitive layout.
Fans with LED lights dim & brighten based on fan speed.
Have to cycle through unused fan ports.
Display is very bright. (Both good & bad)
Doesn't fit some cases with tool-less drive bays.
Temp probes are "all or nothing"
Only controls fans down to 40%, then fans are just Off.
Physically, this wouldn't fit in my case. I have a HAF XB with tool-less drive bays. Only one side of any drive is secured. With a full length drive, this isn't an issue. With this controller, being only an inch or two long, it flexes to almost a 45degree angle because one side isn't secured to the chassis. Because of this flex, I almost can't use the touch interface. If I press hard enough to make good contact, it nearly brakes the support frame.
Really would have been better to have at least 4" of frame behind the panel.
Also the temp probes can be unplugged, but if you reconnect them, you have to reconnect ALL of them, regardless of how many you actually need to use.
Ended giving it to my nephew who has a case where it can be hard mounted.
