NZXT is a manufacturer of computer components that is most likely best known for their innovative computer cases. We have reviewed a handful of them here at, and they never fail to impress.

While cases may be their bread and butter, they do offer a variety of other items, including power supplies, mice, coolers, and fan controllers. This review is going to take a look at something they call the Sentry LX; a serious fan controller that occupies two 5.25 inch drive bays while providing control and feedback for up to five fan speeds and temperatures in a computer case.

The promotional image above provides an overview of the NZXT Sentry LX, where it can be seen that this definitely isn't your basic fan controller with just a couple knobs sticking out of a blank plate. The large display can provide a good deal of information all at once, and just a few buttons on one side allow you to take control of everything.

Before taking a closer look at the Sentry LX, let's take a closer look at some published data on it as taken from the official product page on the NZXT website.
