Fan controllers come in all shapes in sizes, but it’s not every day you see one that looks like a DJ’s mixer. Today we’ll be looking at the NZXT Sentry Mix Fan Controller, which supports up to six fans. The fans can be controlled very easily with each having its own slider. Each slider is individually marked and can be easily spotted in one of five LED colors.
When we posted our overview of the NZXT Switch 810 many people had asked us what fan controller was being used on the case and it was NZXT’s own Sentry Mix fan controller. This controller fits in an open 5.25-inch drive bay and features six 50w channels and five LED colors for you to choose from. It also has a nice rubberized finish, unlike many fan controllers.
