NZXT's Latest Fan Controller is Super Sexy

Fan controllers, while functional, don't exactly come to mind as the first item to spruce up a rather drab looking PC, but maybe they would be if they all looked like NZXT's Sentry line. Released today is NZXT's Sentry LXE, the fourth external fan controller in NZXT's Sentry family and arguably the sexiest of the bunch.

Like the Sentry LX, the revised LXE sports a large touchscreen interface. From here you're able to control up to five fans, adjusting the RPM speeds on each as you see fit. You can change these on a whim, or configure the fans to spin a certain speeds based on temperatures.

At $60, it's a little pricey for a fan controller, but if there's a better looking one out there, do share in the comments section below.
