Installing the Sentry Mesh is a very simple procedure. It just requires an available 5.25″ drive bay to sit in and a couple screws to secure it in it’s place.
The NZXT Phantom chassis that we are using happens to be designed for a tool free installation so there was no need to use the 4 mounting screws.
The only thing left to do is connect our fans to the corresponding cables on the fan controller, replace the front panel on the Phantom, and we are good to go.
Above is the Sentry Mesh installed in our test machine. The mesh used on the front panel blends in quite nicely and looks right at home in our Phantom. When our system is powered on there is a single blue LED just below the NZXT lettering on the mesh front panel. Some users may find that the LED is a touch on the bright side, if so one solution would be to cover it with a small piece of tape or perhaps use a black marker.
