Summary: The instructions were ultra vaque and the cables are crazy long, if you buy this have some zip ties handy
Pros: Can controll up to ten fans (theoretically) if you use the 3 pin connectors and the 4 pin d connectors. I like the temp probes being extra long, i was able to get them to every part of the case i wanted
Cons: Truly the only thing i dont like about it is the tone of the buzzer, and the lack of ability to disable it through the controller panel. Every time it goes off it makes my head hurt like crazy and it sounds like an alarm clock.
Summary: I bought this because i knew it'd be easy to use with my PC on the desk. I recommand it !
Pros: Really nice fan controller with a pretty good touch screen (Feels like an audio unit touch screen in a car). Easy to use, easy to install.
Cons: Lots of cables. Hard to do a perfect cable management with the non-removable cable on the unit. The sensors are acting weird sometime. Jumping for 24c to 30c then go back for 24c in 1 second. Still tell you the right temps (tested with various sources of heat).
Pros: Got this when I was newer to computers. Easy to use for all tech levels. Great flexibility for multi fan control. 40% speed is great to reduce noise level especially if you like a quite pc. It also looks pretty cool.
Cons: Not major but obviously has a decent number of extra wires to clutter up pathways and get tangled in other cords.
Summary: Made from cheap plastic and circuit boards. Long cords. LCD touchy panel sensor, does what it displays. Power drops off 40% - 0%, nothing lower than 40%
Pros: Controls my array of assorted molex and three pin fans. Regulates voltage from 100% down to 40%. Versatile.
Cons: The touchscreen is loud. Fan banks are selected one by one, not on demand. While aesthetically pleasing I do not see the need for so many temperature sensors, comes with five and two spares, five connections for each fan bank.
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: I bought this when all my case fans used 3-pin connections, but I just recently replaced one with a new fan that used 4 pins. I found that I couldn't connect it to the fan controller, so I moved it to another spot and connected it to the motherboard.
Pros: It can handle all the fans in my case just fine.
