5.0 out of 5 stars Great fan controller for the PC 2 Mar 2010
I bought this over a week ago, as I was upgrading my computer. I looked at alot of fan controllers, but dedcided on this one. I read alot of reviews on variuos pc tech forums etc, and selected this. I am not dissapointed this is a great piece of hardware. Its smaller than the first version, which is good as it only need one bay slot, it is super easy to install, and in the dark it looks amazing. You can controll all the fans you have with this this. The LCD touch screen panel is great, and unlike the first one it makes a beep noise so you know when u have selected something. The wires come with 3 and 4 pin connectors so you dont have to worry about nothing fitting from the fans. Everything on the wires is also labeled as well, which makes things much easier to organise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin. 2 Jan 2013
By Doc
Verified Purchase
I bought this item with the intent of reducing the noise from my PC.

Postives-

-Installation into the case was easy.
-Does change fan RPM
-Temp displays are accurate (enough)
-Tough screen looks good and works well

Negatives-

-Lots of wires causes a clutter case (unless you have good cable management)
-The sticky tape provided for the temperature sensors are not strong enough to hold sensors in place
-If using LED fans, the Fan Control causes them to make funny whirring/humming/ticking noises.

Overall the Fan Control is good. The only thing that does annoy me is the fact that using LED fans with this will cause even more noise. As a result I swapped back to non LED fans, this resolved the issue. My PC is now almost silent, but well cooled.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good fan controller! 10 Jun 2010
By abb1812
The best part about the Sentry 2 is that it works exactly like it should. I'm very happy with it, no matter if in "auto" or "manual" mode it works fine and decreses noise from your fans suitably.
Of course it also looks great, especially in the dark and is easy to install. It comes with both 3-pin and 4-pin connectors and temperature feelers.
The only thing I do not like is that the manual fails to explain how to turn off the beeping noise when you select something. In order to do so, simply tap the little off symbol in the right bottom corner ONCE - beeps turned off. Tap it again once and you have the beeps back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little gadget 23 July 2011
By Sam P.
Verified Purchase
Works fine. The twin-type fan connectors make it compatible with a wide range of fans. Information is accurate and the automatic is good to have. Only problems I have are:

- The cables are very long and very messy. Without appropriate cable management in the case, internally the PC will be a rats' nest of cables, potentially restricting air flow.

- Using the included tape to attach the probes is a temporary measure. The adhesive is far too weak, meaning that your probes will be all over the place if you're not careful. Try purchasing some stronger stuff, you won't regret it.

But don't let those two points discourage you. This product is a very useful thing to have, and it looks good too.

4.0 out of 5 stars NZXTY fan controller 23 Jun 2011
The pro's and con's about this product

The Pro's

The NZXTY fan controller works fantastically great in automatic mode, you dont need to adjust its settings for manual mode because it does its job cleverly and accurately. It is very easy to use and very easy to set up, It controls four fans like it says on the tin with four probes, whats so great about this product is that the moment the temperature increases to where the probes are set up the NZXTY fan controllers reacts quickly in seconds, it is so accurate with the temperature its frighening. I have a full tower Cooler master haf 932 computer case, my hard drive is located where the front panel fan is, so what I did was put one of the probes on the hardrive and tested to see how this product worked, the fan controller starts off at the factory settings of 50% fan speed, once the hard drive temperature increases so did the fan that the probe was located, and once temperture drops the fan speed reacts instantly and decreases its fan speed instantly. It looks beautiful on your pc giving it a sophisticated high end look in un lit conditions, beautiful colors very pretty product. It is very good with energy so when using this product you are saving energy which will add longevity to your motherboard.

The Con's

Manual mode is a waist of time because it does not save your settings when your PC is turned off. It does not use a battery so manual mode is a joke.
The alarm sounds like annoying micro wave.

ITS A GREAT PRODUCT IT IS VERY RELIABLE IN AUTOMATIC MODE IT LOOKS FANTASTIC, AND I BELIEVE IT IS THE MOST ACCURATE AND RELIABLE FAN CONTROLLER ON THE MARKET TODAY.

3.0 out of 5 stars Low Pass Filter 7 Feb 2011
This product did make all my fans vibrate horribly which was annoying as I bought to make my PC quieter. I managed to solve the problem by building a small low pass filter for each fan which didn't take long.
For each low pass filter I used a capacitor in parallel (~50uF) and a resistor in series (~5-50ohms) between the capacitor and fan controller (the values depended on the fan).
The components can be bought very cheaply. If you do try this fix remember to spec your resistors at around 1 watt to be safe (fans draw about 0.1A). A larger capacitor will reduce the rattling sound more; too large and the controller might not think there is a fan there at all, a little experimentation is needed.
Why NZXT couldn't just smooth the output is a mystery to me.
