Sentry LX

Club Overclocker

  • Conclusion: The Sentry LX is clearly a step above the smaller single slot or floppy sized controllers.  The large screen and anodized aluminum construction go a long way towards justifying the premium price.  The large size makes displaying the 5 fans and temperature probes from getting cramped.

NZXT Sentry LX Fan Controller Review

15 May 2009
  • Summary: To conclude, I will repeat.  I am a big fan of cooling, and anything that allows me to control the temperature, speed, and sound of my fans with such an huge and multi-use LCD screen is Christmas any day of the year to me.

NZXT Sentry LX SEN-001LX Digital Fan Controller

Benchmark Reviews
13 May 2009
  • Conclusion: The Sentry LX arrived to me double boxed. Inside was a very nice colorful and well laid out retail box. Clear glossy color photos of the Sentry LX were there as well as the list of specifications. All this was laid out in a very easy to read and understand format.
  • Pros: Solid construction, Beautiful appearance, Large LCD readout screen, Easy setup
  • Cons: Included battery was dead, Only 3 pin fan compatible as shipped, Temp probes add more work and clutter over standard fan control

NZXT Sentry LX Fan Controller

  • Summary: The Sentry LX fan controller is a capable device that makes controlling and monitoring up to five fans and temperatures rather convenient. The display is well laid out and easy to read (from the right angles), and taking control of each fan is quite simple.
  • Pros: » Fan control in 100RPM increments, » Attractively styled, » Easy to read display, » Effective fan control, » Easy to operate
  • Cons: » High price to pay for fan control, » Connectors are hot melt glued in place, and some worked themselves loose, » Limited viewing angle from above or below, » Reset button is too easy to press by accident, » Audible alarm is fairly quiet and stops after a few seconds

  • Pros: Easy to install, Easy to use, Looks great, Very well made, Auto and manual modes, Nice long wires
  • Cons: None to be had

NZXT Sentry LX Review

  • Excerpt: Sometimes you don’t need all of your case fans to be running at full speed, especially in a case with more than just three fans. Ideally, slowing down those RPMs could save on both electricity and noise pollution. To that end, NZXT recently sent us their top-tier fan controller, the Sentry LX.
  • Pros: High quality components, Looks swank, Simple installation, Intuitive controls, Conserves electricity
  • Cons: Occupies two bays, Poor LCD viewing angle, Requires significant additional cable management, Ships with poor thermistor adhesive

15 December 2008
  • Summary: The NZXT Sentry LX may not be cheap. At almost 60 € or 70 US Dollars, it costs as much as some computer cases out there. This means you can expect a lot from the unit as there are plenty of other, similar devices out there, at cheaper price points.
  • Pros: Great build quality, Bright display, Individual control of five fans, Auto or Manual setting for fans, Five thermal diodes attached, Two replacement diodes included, Battery included, to store settings when PC is off, Ability to completely turn off individual fans, Date & time display, Intuitive ...
  • Cons: Pricey, Reset button too easy to press, Takes up two 5.25 inch bays, Only available in black, Moving parts of the display may be distracting, No PC interface via USB for example

26 August 2008
  • Summary: Using the Sentry LX was actually a lot easier than I was expecting. The manual has all of the commands readily available and most were quite intuitive. The ability to control all of the fans at once made using the controller far less tedious than other controllers with LCD screens, and I was able to...

  • Conclusion: Well, as our test results show, having a fan controller certainly makes it easier to monitor your temps in addition to controlling the speeds. The ability to control individual fan speeds while viewing the temperatures makes it very easy to figure out which areas of your case are contributing to...
