NZXT is mainly known for their cases, however, in recent years, they have spread their wings into fan controllers and peripherals . Last year we took a look at the Sentry LX and they are back with the all new Sentry 2 touch screen fan controller. I reviewed the Sentry LX last year and gave it top marks as a hardware fan controller. Will the Sentry 2 live up to the standards once set by the original Sentry LX, or will it out perform the more luxurious and feature rich Sentry LX. Read on to see if this is the next big thing in fan controllers or just another piece of junk.
“Introducing the Sentry 2, a full system fan controller with an advanced touch screen interface. Sentry 2 easily installs in a 5.25: bay and is compatible with any fan that uses voltage control. The innovative touch screen features ultra fast selection and response time and displays all pertinent info including temperature readout in both Celsius and Fahrenheit. Sentry 2 allows users to control up to 5 fans with the option for manually tuning individual fan speeds or letting the automatic controls take over to correspond to a specific temperature. The controller’s advanced functionality sounds an alarm to alert the user should the temperature exceed a preset amount and stores saved settings even after it is turned off. Designed to maximize efficiency, the Sentry 2 supports 10W per channel and creates less heat than traditional temperature displays.”
