it looks cool when install in my thermaltake level 10 gt case. my board can control 4 system fan and 1 cpu fan, more than enough. I still get nzxt fan controller for manual fan control, but more for the great looking. The wires for sensor and fan connector are long enough to work with. Build quality is good.
lcd can be better as the view angle is too limited. reset button is too easy to trigger by mistake. sometimes it gives false alarm. But really I can't tell it's my mainboard or sentry. Some people complain it takes 2 5' bay. I rather like it that way, coz my 4 bay are hosting only 1 blueray drive and it does everything. So another two bay for sentry, looks certainly better than the narrow small ones.
I saw this on every other ad in computer magazines and had to have it... im not disappointed, it looks amazing in my Antec 1200 case. The fan controllers and temp guages look fantastic, but the Date/Time on the left looks kind of crappy to be honest. Its alarm clock style numbers and unless your looking right at it, it looks distorted and hard to read. Its nice and bright too... I wish there was a button to turn the display off, sometimes i dont want that blue glow, but thats a minor issue. The quality is top notch, it fit perfectly in the case, nice and snug... overall im very happy with it.
Very useful to configure all my 10 fans in my computer and watching the temperature. Very recommended for people who want to change for performance vs quiet fans. My Corsair 300R Carbide looks very cool in front.
I know that this model has battery issue but I guess NZXT resolve that problem with including Lithium ion battery(which is rechargerable!!!!!) instead of DR or CR2032. Mine came with LI battery and has no problem at all. another thing is that the fan connectors are all 3 pin, no 4 pin adoptor included, but I have fans from Bitfenix which are 3pins so it's all good!
LED screen is very clear and no dead pixel was found on mine.
I bought this for my current build, i strongly believe that the NZXT sentry lx is the best fan controller around, i read a lot about the product im buying and this one is the best.good price also ^^ 5/5
I love this controller. With 7 fans in my Corsair Obsidian 800D I need something functional to let me know the temps in my rig. As long as you place the temps probes in the right places, you get a very good sense of the temp levels. The manual that comes with the product is a bit too thin. It could stand to give the user some better pointers as to where to put the temp probes.
I just got the sentry LX to control my fans and to make my gaming case look cool. I find that it was pretty basic to operate. I like the auto option because the sentry will turn off or on whatever fans are needed and I don't have to worry. I also have a manual setting, which I have setup. I have read reviews on people complaining that the batteries that comes with the unit dies fast, so I just got a new one "not sure that complaint is true".
The sentry does have a beeping sound to let you know that its turning off fans, there is no beeping sound when it turns on fans when your systems gets hotter. I do hear the beeping when I turn on the system, its around 3-4 beeps.
