Got a heck of a lot of overclocked components to keep cool? No, you aren't sick nor twisted, you just need the help of NZXT. The peripheral company has just debuted their new Sentry Mesh Fan Controller, a five-fan controller that is said to deliver "maximum airflow customization with a simplistic design." The newest Sentry’s black, mesh façade stealthily blends into the case’s exterior and empowers enthusiasts to maximize and customize airflow with five 30W easy-to-use fan control sliders.


It's a fairly simply product, but one that'll no doubt please those looking to keep a better handle on airflow within their case. It's also just $24.99, making it a fairly painless upgrade for most. It's the weekend; mow a few lawns and you'll have it covered!

NZXT makes good products and has great customer service. If not for the controller built into my Phantom, this would make a nice addition since I like the way it looks.

This is nice looking bling. If I wasn't a 'turn it up to max and leave it', kind of guy, I'd get one or two of them.

I agree with you realneil. And although it would look nice in a coolermaster haf product, I don't think it would go with my antec p160w.

i use my case controller at half speed for all the fans, but if i were to put on higher then the other, this would be my first choice, cheap and fits in nicely.

Inspector:

When I went to aftermarket fans in my cases, I chose the quietest high flow fans that I could find. None of them do more than 16DB of noise when cranked up, so they're on all of the way. ('cause you can't over-air cool your stuff) The boxes are quieter than they were before I changed the fans too.

I agree that this controller looks great, but I have had bad luck with fan controllers in the past, so I shy away from them. I'm sure that the quality is there, and the designs surpass what I tried a few years back.

This is great but don't most cases, particularly higher end cases already have some sort of fan speed control?

Either way if they don't this is a really attractive looking and simple fan speed control and very inexpensive as well, definitely an appealing product
