Good controller, nice looking and easy to install

  • 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.

look and controls are great

  • 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.

go baby go

  • 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.

It works for the most part

Remus, Amazon

  • 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.

Good but a little hard to see

Mighty Mac, Amazon
1 March 2013
  • 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.

Great bang for the buck, some nice features

Brian Nguyen, Amazon
22 February 2013
  • 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.

Installed 5 of these so far, all worked like a charm.

  • Summary: First off, this is not for a 2 fan system, there are a lot of wires, but if you are building an air cooled gaming rig, you need a lot of wires. 5 temp sensors long enough to be hidden and still reach anywhere you need them in a full tower case. Plugs for 3 and 4 pin fans, and auto adjustment. The biggest negative for me is that you can't turn a fan completely off.

Control up to 5 fans

Alexandre Emelianov, Amazon
21 June 2010
  • Summary: If you have a black computer case, have several fans and your motherboard does not do a good job controlling them, this is the solution. The panel provides connectors for 5 fans and 5 temperature probes, attached to different parts of your system by adhesive tape. If you pair probes with fans correctly, the "auto" mode selectively controls fans to optimize temperature. What I don't like about it: first, it beeps when you touch the screen.

What a great product!

Lindsey the Boy, Amazon
30 March 2010
  • 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.
