NZXT Sentry-2 Touchscreen Fan Controller
Benchmark Reviews has the pleasure of testing NZXT's newest fan control: the Sentry 2 Touchscreen Fan Controller. A step up from the Sentry 1 and a worthy stable mate for the Sentry LX. The Sentry 2 is a different approach to the same problem. A more elegant solution to a problem that has plagued computer enthusiasts since their earliest days; fan noise. With it's touchscreen controls it's a definite step in the right direction above and beyond it's predecessor the Sentry 1, the Sentry 2 is simplicity itself.
Taking up only half the space of the Sentry LX you might think the NZXT Sentry 2 has only half the features or capabilities but you'd be wrong. Gone are the buttons bells and whistles but what's left is the best of the LX with a touchscreen to make those core features even better and easier to use with some added benefits as well.
Hot on the heals of my earlier review of the NZXT Sentry LX Fan Controller comes the brand new NZXT Sentry 2 Touchscreen Fan Controller. You guessed it; it's all touchscreen controls. No knobs or buttons to accidentally bump or break off, just pure technology put to use in a very unique way. Gone is any hint to buttons or knobs just 100% touchscreen goodness. Can something so small and simple really be powerful enough to control 5 fans and will it actually work or is this more gimmick than go? Read on.
