NZXT makes all sorts of cool cases and accessories for building up your PC like fan controllers. The company has unveiled a new fan controller that should work well and allow you to control multiple fans inside the PC and look good too. The Sentry 3 has a 5.4-inch touchscreen on the font.




That touchscreen allows you to touch and control fans consuming up to 15W on each channel and it has five channels. The device is designed to slip into a vacant 5.25-inch drive bay in your case and can control any 3-pin or 4-pin PWM fan on the market.



Sentry 3 also has a temperature sensor and shows the temperature inside your case on the front panel along with the speed that the fans are spinning at. The touchscreen is capacitive and the controller has a single Molex connector.


NZXT plans to ship the Sentry 3 in about two weeks at a price of $34.99. Interested buyers can pre-order the device right now. With this fan controller installed in your PC case, you can control your fans with the swipe of a finger.
