Nice fan controller with a couple things to nitpick
18 December 2014
Summary: The Sentry 2 is pretty dang nice, I'm not gonna lie. The screen is bright and has a pretty decent viewing angle (I can see what I'm doing without having to leave my chair) and having an auto setting that adjusts fan speeds based on the temp reading from the sensors is really nice too.

Summary: The only thing separating me from giving a 5 star rating for this fan controller is that the power inlet socket had a loose cable. I had to check everything twice or three times until I finally detected the issue. The power inlet socket was built with bad quality! Other than that, this fan controller actually works very well and looks very nice on my black Corsair case, although it is a model more than two years old. Recommended.
Summary: First thing this looks amazing on my C70 case love the style it gives it. controls were great simple easy to use leave it on auto and it'll the the rest on its own. cables come with both 3pin and molex so don't worry if you're worried if your fan would work. one thing I don't like about it which is why its 4 not 5 is the range of clear view you have to be looking at it almost straight to it to see the numbers.
Summary: Bought this because my 200mm case fans running at 100% was too loud and unnecessary for normal computer use. It is perfect! Pros: - Unlike most 5.25" bay manual fan controllers out there, it actually has 4 places you can screw it down into the bay so that it is nice and stable. - One 4-pin Molex plugs into the cable from your power supply and there are five 3-pin female fan connectors to plug into. Very logical.
Summary: The touchscreen works and it gets every job advertised done as advertised. It doesn't specify that it is, but it is compatible with both Molex and 3-pin-fan power, so it works with more or less any fan. If you have those molex-powered fans and you have more than 5 fans you can string them together in a bank.
Summary: + looks really neat +easy to use +cheap +has an auto mode where it will choose the right fan setting for the temp of your pc -dont know how accurate the the temp is -would have been nice to see the temp in fairenheit and not just celsius =for 25$ got what i wanted and then some
Summary: The contrast is really bright, its hard to see unless youre looking eye-level to it (maybe there is a way to change the brightness, but I read the directions and didnt see any. I put the temperature probs in the cpu heatsink, videocard heatsink, and the north bridge heatsink. To my surprise, my northbridge was overheating. Im glad I bought this, I was able to add a fan before any damage was done. For the price, it's a really good buy.
Summary: PROS: Small, easy to install, nice colours and feel to the touch screen. CONS: temperature monitoring stinks, and you can't manually lower the fan speed below 40%, it goes straight to 0%. Also +/- only changes the speed in increments of 10%. No biggie.
Summary: I was very suprised with the way this fan controller worked.This is my first controller and didn't want to spend too much money.The installation was very simple even with the lack of detailed instructions.I am controlling three fans,two 120mm led fans and one 90mm led fan.I tried to hook it up to my CPU fan but when the bios realized there was no fan hooked up to the motherboard the computer shut down so the CPU wouldn't overheat.Im sure there is a way to disable this...
Summary: The NZXT SENTRY 2 Accessories 5.25-Inch Touch Screen Fan Controller was the simplest of solutions to my fan problems. I have the Cooler Master Centurion Case which has 6 fans and my motherboard only allows me to control the speed of two of these fans. The rest of the fans were just going at 100% rpm. You could literally hear my pc from downstairs. I now have 4 Thermaltake "Tt" 120mm fans from RadioShack wired to this fan controller and it works great.
