100% Positive Reviews
Rated #15 in Controller Panels


Pros: Looks great, Blends with most cases well, Multi-colored LED's, Does it's job well as a fan controller

Cons: One of the channels was DOA, Switches themselves gather fingerprints and are awkwardly shaped

I bought the NZXT Sentry Mix 2 fan controller a week or two ago from FrozenCPU along with some new fans. I got everything wired up, including the second, optional molex to power the fan controller, and when I booted up my computer, one of the fans didn't spin. After a bit of troubleshooting and rewiring, I discovered that channel four of the fan controller was dead. That is really the only problem I have with mine. Unfortunately, due to FrozenCPU's RMA policy, I didn't want to spend the time and money to get a replacement, so I now have a five channel fan controller. This leads to a pro, however, and it is that each fan cable is detachable from the back side of the controller, in case you aren't using that channel. This saves a lot of useless wiring from sitting around in your case. You can change the color of the LED's with the push of a button on the fan controller, meaning you don't have to deal with sometimes buggy software. You can also turn off the LED's entirely with that button. The switches themselves are a glossy black, so they do catch a lot of fingerprints, but they are oftentimes hard to see. The switches are also a little hard to hold onto due to their shape, and they wiggle a little from side to side. This is by no means a deal breaker, but only a minor flaw with a small detail that should be noted. To sum up, I suppose, this is a great fan controller with a few design flaws, but it's ability to blend in with almost any build is great. I recommend this product, but if you do order one, I hope you receive one that is fully functional.
