Testing and the Finished Product

To test the Sentry Mix, I took six random fans I had sitting around and built a mini wall of fans. There is a Trio of Noctua Fans, a Xigmatek, an Apolish Fan and a SilenX fan. I just tied things up to make it look nice in the images, but ran this controller though its paces for a few hours worth of workload.

 

With the digital multi-meter attached, I was able to get 11.35V maximum out of any of the channels with the sliders maxed out. With the sliders in the lowest position, the Mix delivered 4.66V of power.

Of course, you still have color options once the Mix has power. Let's start with green...

...a purple-ish pink with a mix of white and orange...

...and the last of the five color choices is this lighter blue, which when viewed from different angles, appears to be almost white.
