Accessories and Documentation
First we have this male to male, 8-pin cable. This cable will run from the Sentry LXE to the PCI card. Placing the head unit shouldn't e an issue based on the length of this cable, as NZXT made this seven foot long.
Here is the controller card. It doesn't actually use a PCI slot on the motherboard, but will render one dysfunctional, as the expansion slot is still used. The battery is shipped uninstalled I just placed it in for the image. Aside from the coils and caps there are the power connection, the five temperature probe lines, and the five fan connections. At the top, near the battery, there is a speaker that sounds during programming and also during the alarm.
Using a PCI bracket to mount the card, NZXT used this as the opportunity for a large area to place the connector. You find the same 8-pin connection here as on the back of the LXE.
The connections from the card include five separated, 3-pin, fan connections and five separated temperature probes shipped with plastic covers to keep them flat and straight. In the middle you see a 4-pin Molex connector to add power to the unit. All the wiring is black, some come separated, while the others need split as needed to route them through the case.
There is a folded up user's manual included. IT shows most of the basics, like connectivity, and how to get around in the touch screen menu. While not the best instructions on how to make the LXE function, it was enough to allow me to figure it out as I went.
