Best Fan Controller

Recommended Posts

I currently own a NZXT Phantom and the built-in fan controller has failed. NZXT is replacing it, but I want to get a standalone controller. This is just my excuse.

 

I have a total of 5 fans that will be connected to the controller.

2x NZXT 200mm (LINK)

1x Cooler Master 140mm (LINK)

2x Cooler Master 120mm (LINK)

 

I am currently looking at the following Fan Controllers:

NZXT Sentry 2

NZXT Sentry LX

NZXT Sentry Mix

 

Personally, I like the look and feel of the Sentry LX, but I want a good & functional controller over looks.

 

Any suggestions?

Without a doubt the 50w/channel "mix" will win the award here. The "2" will meet the needs like a glove (although I would feel safer with a test reading of the a the fans off/on cycle will pull with a multimeter). The "lx" sorry to say will just blow up literally. The 120 and 140 fans can all be used on the controllers without a problem, but when it comes to the 200 fan at .42a the startup fan a and the 12v line fluctuations will limit the choice of fan controller to controllers with greater w/channel.

NZXT Sentry Mix.

But I highly doubt over its capability of advertised 50Watt/channel. Although it is way better than other two. (not lookwise)

Its Wattage/channel is what matters most in case of fan controller and it also affects lifetime of that controller.

Your call. :)
