    NZXT, a company built on realizing the dreams of gamers worldwide, is proud to announce the Sentry LXE, a high performance external fan controller with an intuitive touch screen. Its unique patent-pending PCI card interface desktop design allows effortless control without having to reach underneath the desk to configure the settings. Some of the additional advanced features include:

    Intuitive Touch Screen LCD – Advanced, touch screen LCD displays temperatures in C/F, RPMs, along with the date, time, and day of the week. Users have the ability to switch the display off for complete darkness for more immersive gaming sessions.

    Complete Control – 5 Temperature probes keep tabs on thermals throughout the case while the 5 Fan controllers adjust the fans’ RPM speed. Allows users to automatically adjust the fan speeds to correspond to a specific temperature, manually customize for extreme overclocking capabilities, or set to absolute silence.

    Temperature Alarm – Instant notification if temperatures rise above a designated point.

    Sleek Design – Brushed aluminum frame provides sleek aesthetics for any desktop environment. Simply set the fan controller atop your PC or desktop and connect through PCI card interface.

    “Sentry LXE is a unique blend of high performance, complete monitoring and control, intuitive operation, and sleek design” said Johnny Hou, Founder and Chief Designer at NZXT. “The customization capabilities are perfect for the enthusiast who wants to tweak every aspect of airflow and keep tabs on system thermals. Having already launched several highly-acclaimed fan controllers, we truly feel that Sentry LXE offers unparalleled value and is a must-have addition to any performance PC.”

    Sentry LXE will be available soon for the MSRP of $59.99.

    looks pretty cool, although all this flash for a fan controller seems a little bit excessive

    would be better if it was installed through the drive bays instead of being external.. would just add clutter to the table or on top the case.

    Nice. So that makes what, 3 styles of touch screen fan controllers for Nzxt now? And with this one added in, you can have the controller anywhere you want for fairly cheap.

    Next for Nzxt is the wireless remote control Fan controller (*just guessing).

    I like it. Not sure where I'd put it, especially depending on the length of the included cable, but I like it.
