    NZXT, a company built on realizing the dreams of gamers worldwide, is proud to announce Sentry Mesh, the latest in NZXT’s award-winning lineup of high-performance fan controllers. The newest Sentry’s black, mesh façade stealthily blends into the case’s exterior and empowers enthusiasts to maximize and customize airflow with five 30W easy-to-use fan control sliders.

    “Sentry Mesh is a perfect minimalist solution for gamers who want to customize their airflow, but don’t need a ton of extra features” said Johnny Hou, Founder and Chief Designer at NZXT. The Sentry Mesh is available for $24.99. For more information visit the product page.

    The fan controller from the Phantom can now be purchases as a add on card. Nice.

    Looks like an equalizer. Equalizers are cool. Me like.

    Looks good. After the Sentry 2 debacle though... Doubt NZXT will repeat the same error, but it'd be nice to get some in-depth reviews on that Mesh.

    Looks nice, blends in with the front panel mesh. Plus it has black cables, which will look better in a black interior case. Just a small thing, but I didn't like the colored cables on their previous fan controllers. Plus those dials should def. be more reliable than the touch screen controllers.

    I love the look, I thought this might be the fan controller for me, but only 30w per channel means I can't use it...:(

    I like it. It's simple, clean and not flashy, like most other fan controllers. Matches the mesh on my case too.

    these days of bios controlled fan speeds it seems not a great idea, but it looks good!

    a fan controller is always better

    also it depends on how many headers you have on your mb

    for example, i would never use a Delta straight on a MB, i'd be afraid to fry my board lol

    Hmm, looks nice, I wonder if it supports PWM stuff.

    Further research is required!

    Yeah I had a Sentry 2 so I know EXACTY what you're talking about. But those used PWM right? This one having sliders rather than electronic touch controls makes me think they would be simple analog circuits. I wouldn't think the same issues could be possible here. But I'm no expert on such matters so I'm only guessing but sometimes simple is best!

    this would look smashing at the top of my old antec 902. I think they've struck a winner on the sheer simplicity of this design.

    Looks good, but they should have painted the sliders' insides black too.
