NZXT continues to leave their mark on the PC world with an ever growing array of products. Today we are going to look at their Sentry 2, a touch screen fan control panel. While not a necessity to get your PC up and running, can the Sentry 2 add more features and flair to help separate your PC from the many out there?

The promotional image above provides a quick look at the Sentry 2. This device is intended to occupy a single 5.25" bay in a computer case, and all of the information and controls are provided on the touch sensitive screen. While you could obviously use it in a case of any color, it may look best in a black one, since that is the only color the Sentry 2 is available in.

Before taking a closer look at the sample provided for review, let's cover some of the published data taken from the official product page on the NZXT website.

Features and Specifications:

Touch screen interface
Five fan control through an intuitive interface
Ultra fast selection and response time
Display temperatures in both F and C
Light switch turns off the meter when sleeping
Automatic and manual modes of control
Full compatibility with all types of fans using voltage control
With 10 Watts per channel, the Sentry 2 will support almost all high end fans
Tuned accuracy with only a tolerance of one degree
Sound alarm to alert when the temperature is over
Stored settings, the Sentry keeps your settings even after power off

The Sentry 2 is the second fan controller available in NZXT's Sentry line-up. We reviewed the other model, the Sentry LX, earlier this year and the big difference is that the Sentry 2 can fit in a single drive bay while the Sentry LX takes up two.

Packaging:

NZXT has tightly packaged the Sentry 2 in a small box with a picture of the product on the front. As you can see below, NZXT continues to give multi-language support as the features are displayed in four different languages on the back of the box.
