Vortez posted a review on the NZXT Sentry LXE Fan Controller
A quote from the article:
|Since the earliest days of high performance hardware, it's needed cooling somehow. The element of control over the cooling fans used is now of even more importance when using performance hardware in your office, bedroom and even lounge. Fan controllers over the years have mostly trodden the same design path - simple drive bay devices with dials that adjust fan RPM, often with temperature monitoring. Indeed, this has always seemed like the most sensible design but it's no longer particularly exciting. NZXT began to shake this up with the release of their first Sentry fan controller, which was met with a warm reception back in 2007, featuring an LCD screen with temperature readings and control over 2 fans, and most importantly it was affordable. The Sentry 2 followed, which we looked at ourselves here at Vortez and was worthy of a Silver award. The Sentry LX also demonstrated that NZXT could integrate a complex 5-fan control and temperature monitoring touch screen unit into 2 drive bays, however this isn't the most convenient use of space. The use of 2 5.25" drive bays may be unacceptable for a lot of users.
