NZXT Sentry Mix Review

Rating: 7.5.

NZXT has just released their latest offering in the fan controller market, The Sentry Mix.  The Sentry Mix is very similar in design to the Sentry Mesh that we looked at in back in June.  The front panel design once again simulates the look of a graphic equalizer.

It is equipped with 6 sliders that are used to control the speed of each individual fan. Each slider actually connects to their own 50 watt channel providing more than enough power to run even the most demanding fans.

    I gotta say, I never understood the need for these. Just never got the whole ‘fan controller thing. I do agree with reviewers comments on fan speed. who needs a readout for that? its surely all based on noise

    Looks ok, not something I would be rushing out to buy either.

    Not really my cup of tea looks wise. Generally, if I want a fan controller, I put inside my case or I just get a case for the build that has a built in fan controller. Both my Antec DF and NZXT Phantom have built in fan controllers. Perhaps some people like these. I had a NZXT Sentry LX that I used for a bit but that was mostly for the temperature readouts. I didn’t use it for very long before I sold it for some seperately controlled fans.

    I almost feel like, most of the time, you set all the fans to the speed where you balance cooling and noise and then never touch it again.
