NZXT have updated their touch-screen fan controller and we take a close look at it.

Jaysus I want It screams Star Trek and completely solves the problem of not being able to see the fan controller now my PC is on the floor. Perfect

I’m thinking of getting the Coolermaster HAF X case for my open air system and to make the rig look amazing I’ll buy the NZXT Sentry 2 LXE Fan Controller with it but my only concern is will it fit because I have three optical drives to go with it and I’m also worried about the installation is it easy or will I be straggling with the Molex cables because the Coolermaster HAF X case has a lot of fans to be honest what I really mean will it do my head in.

It's external and all it takes up in your system is a spare PCI slot.

Not at all. There is only one molex on the board itself and its positioning, as explained in the review, is such that it's the easiest fan controller installation around.

Really, you can't go wrong.

thanks mate for the advice but the orange colour you used with your text almost blinded me I don't think I can see any cables after reading your message

I've no idea why it's showing as orange to people. It's black here

Nice review but I've really gone off of fan controllers. It's bad enough with modern PCs having so much to tinker with and adjust, but this thing would kick my OCD off terribly. I did use an NZXT controller a while back and it was terrible. This one does look more solid though.
