    Take your build to new heights with the Sentry 3's perfect blend of precision and power. The Sentry 3 combines five powerful fan channels with an extraordinarily intuitive UI, giving you complete control over your entire rig's cooling with the swipe of a finger.

    The Sentry 3's huge 5.4 inch color touchscreen is 33% larger than any other single bay fan controller screen on the market. The newly introduced PowerSlide Bar gives you ultimate control over your fan channels, letting you adjust speed on the fly. Channel linking allows you to join any of the five fan channels together and control the link group simultaneously.

    The Sentry 3's 15 watts of power per channel is enough to push even the most demanding fans available for builders. To keep this power in check, we've included integrated short protection, making the Sentry 3 and Sentry Mix 2 the only fan controllers to integrate short circuit, undervoltage, and overvoltage protection to keep both you and your computer safer.

    The reimagined UI and high quality construction means you'll never have to choose style over performance with the sleek, empowering Sentry 3.

    The Sentry 3 is available for preorder directly through our store, the NZXT Armory, for $34.99.

    I have the Sentry 2 and I'm pretty happy with it, though frankly I use it as a decorative piece more than anything else. Overall I quite like the UI improvements NZXT's done in the Sentry 3 and at that price I'll probably pick one for my next build.

    that white PCB is really useless on a fan controller. once fan controller is installed inside the PC that won't be visible anyways.

    I have the sentry 2 and bought for the same exact reason LOL
    Bought it a while back and has never given me a single issue.

    I definitely don't need this new iteration but i will purchase it anyways just to test it out.

    Just knowing that you have a white PCB is more important than seeing it :p

    So white PCBs are better, huh? Sounds like geek PC racism - black boards are cool and edgy, green boards are trailer park trash, yellow boards can't drive, brown boards are on siesta, and white boards are supreme - and no, PC doesn't stand for "Politically Correct". That white board must be hiding from the 4 black DIMMs...

    I bought the Sentry 2 a couple years ago when it was on sale for like $15. It definitely looked cool. I gave it to my dad though after just a few months.

    Why do they bother releasing a product that doesn't support PWM fans?

    Thread won.
