NZXT Sentry LXE High Performance Fan Controller
Over the past year and a half, I have seen quite a few ideas at fan controls based inside of cases. While the technology has improved, and I donít see the same stopping of the fans or the limitations the older controllers showed. With all of those built into a case there are simple dials that work to limit the incoming voltage to give the end user the ability to change the fans speeds depending on the demand, or just to tune them for the noise factor. Moving from the case controllers, as there are always some that want more finite control of fans in cases that donít offer controllers built in. This usually leads to the purchase of a rheostat style, bay using, and mounted fan controller. There are many varieties of this type of controller, and their specifications and powering capabilities may or may not cover your specific needs.
Today we are going to look at a new multi-channel fan controller from NZXT, the Sentry LXE. This isnít just an ordinary fan controller though. It offers time and date, temperature alarms, and on top of that it functions via a touch screen LCD display. Typically, one would need a few open 5.25Ē drive bays to apply such a piece of hardware to control their system. That just isnít the case here! NZXT has taken the fan controller, and with the use of a cable and PCI interface, they took the controller off the front of a case and allowed for this unit to sit anywhere there is room.
