Specifications, Availability and Pricing
At this point I am going to have to let the cat out of the bag as we discuss the new Sentry Mix. On the front of the 5.25" bay device you will see six gunmetal grey sliders on a matte black rubber finish. This surface is much like the SofTouch that BitFenix cases have. To the left of the six sliders for controlling the fans you will find an inset area with the NZXT name in it, and to its left, a black plastic button for changing the LED colors on the front while it operates. This controller will function with red, light blue (almost white), blue, a pinkish purple, and green. With that in mind, this controller can add a splash of color and match almost any systems color scheme.
To mount this device and use it, things could get much easier. You simply slide in the device and with four supplied screws you mount it in the case. After that, you need to power the unit by plugging in the pair of 4-pin Molex connectors. These connections are only wires for 12V, 5V and Ground wires. At this point it is just a matter of finding up to six fans you want to control, with an amazing 50W per channel rating. That's right, theoretically you have 300W worth of fan power across all channels. Now, I don't think this unit can draw that sort of power, but I'm confident it is more than capable to power any set of fans you choose to connect. One limitation to this unit is that all of the six fan connections are 3-pin only. Without cutting away some of the plastic, 4-pin fans are out of the picture for use.
As I usually do, I just ventured over to Google shopping to look up the Sentry Mix. I am sorry to say that as I write this there is no stock showing, anywhere! On top of that, even if you were to settle for the Mesh, it seems stock is limited there too. With the fresh release of the Sentry Mix, I will give them some leeway for the final score, but I honestly would have thought I could see these ready to show you where to get your own, because you are going to want one. I do know that the MSRP is set at $39.99 and for that price, I think it is very fair for the features and huge amount of power at your fingertips.
