NZXT Sentry Mix Fan Controller Review
Over decades of evolution, the growth and development of technology has exponentially increased, and with that, consumers obtain better technology than ever. When it comes down to computer products, we can see a similar pattern of technological growth. Generally speaking, with each new improvement to the product itself, performance seems to be one criterion that is rarely missed. Nowadays, while most companies do a fairly good job in keeping the heat down while increasing its performance, in some instances, this may not be enough. If you like to overclock, pushing your components to the limit may produce a little more heat than the manufacturer intended. At the same time, no one likes a computer that sounds like a jet taking off. With that in mind, since most computer components don't operate at 100% load at all times, what's there to stop those who want make their own decision on how fast their fan spins? For enthusiasts out there who want to keep performance and manual control over their fan speed, rest be assured, as NZXT has introduced a new product in their line -- the Sentry Mix. Like its predecessor, the NZXT Sentry Mesh reviewed by my colleague Jeremy, it features multiple channels to control your fans. But what's nice about it is not only a revamped appearance, but a whole 50W is fed to each of the six channels. Yes, you have read that correctly. 50W. I am not saying you should plug in your house fan, but want to see what's packed under the hood?
