Sentry LX

Club Overclocker
1 June 2009
  • 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.  The ability to manually set your fans or simply set them to automatic and forget about them is a nice feature as well. Really the only major drawback is the two bay size.

NZXT Sentry LX Fan Controller Review

OCModShop
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.  The ease of use with the Sentry LX is a plus for me, as I believe that protecting your hardware should be something anyone can do.  Too many computers come with only the least available cooling hardware, and the Sentry is a big boost in airflow.

NZXT Sentry LX

Modders-Inc
16 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Fan controllers are fairly simplistic by their nature, and as such can come off as “boring”, cheaply made or poorly engineered in the worst cases… or elegant and, dare I say it, sophisticated devices in the upper echelon. NZXT appears on the blustery, wind swept field littered with fan controller promises with the Sentry LX to help tame your fan flow nightmares. How does it look? How is it built?
  • Pros: Brushed Aluminum front bezel, Beveled edge on the display frame, Clear color choices for the display, Attractive and well organized display

NZXT Sentry LX

  • Conclusion: Overall I really like this product and will keep it long after I finish this review. However I can’t help but feel that the humble fan controller is slightly outdated by new motherboards and even simple programs such as SpeedFan, not to mention fans that can do it all themselves anyway with the simple addition of a thermistor.
  • Pros: Fantastic looks, Intuitive control, Responsive, Easy install
  • Cons: Hard to read, Cable management is a nightmare
