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.
