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.

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!

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