All power to the... fans

NZXT are a well-established manufacturer of peripheries for the PC and the last fan controller we reviewed by them was well received.

 

The only downside to the Sentry LX is the fact that it occupies two whole drive bays which can put a damper on your case-chi if you use more than one DVD-ROM or mount hard disks in noise dampening cages in your 5.25" bays.

 

So, the logical progression was to reduce the size down to a single bay, but how do you maintain the same functionality as the LX without the use of buttons?

Simple conductive membranes which switch on contact provides a cheap and effective touch screen solution.

 

Looking at the website, the note-worthies are:

 

- Touch screen
- 5 Fan control
- Temperature in C and F
- Automatic and Manual modes
- 3 pin and 4 pin (Molex) style for every kind of fan
- Voltage control (not PWM)
- 10Watts per a channel (Handles BIG fans)
- Audible alarm
- Settings memory

 

The only bad point I can see so far is that it's only available in black with a plastic finish.
