NZXT Sentry Mix 6 Channel Fan Controller Review 99 |


Anyone who has been following what NZXT has been delivering to the aftermarket crowd, would have seen the development of a few bay devices. I wasn't privy to any bay fan controllers, but I did use the Sentry LXE and I loved it. What I have seen are things like the Bunker, a handy little USB device, and Sentry Mesh, a 30W fan controller. Using that same frame and keeping in the realm of fan controllers, NZXT is offering us something both different looking as well as having enough power to shock an elephants heart back into action!

Looking back at the last fan controller I saw from NZXT, the Mesh, this unit as I mentioned used the same plastic tray, but much different electronics as well as a completely different front panel. The Mesh had of course a mesh exterior plate with slider switches across the front, five of them in fact. The Mesh delivers up to 30W of power across all five of the channels, and in this new release is something that gets completely reworked. There is also a surprise on the front, a special coating over the plastic, but I will save that little bit until we get to see it after the unboxing.

The fan controller we are about to have a look at today is the NZXT Sentry Mix. All I can tell you is that this is the most powerful fan controller I have ever had in my hands. I haven't covered many of the key features as this review is going to be pretty short and sweet as it is, and I want to reveal these things as I can show them off. At this point I suggest you settle in and be ready to wrap your mind around a full set of features and a power rating that will just make you wonder what you can try to test with it!

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
