As an overclocker, have you ever wondered what the real temperatures of the particular components on your system were? What I mean is that most motherboards come pre-wired with some sort of RTD (resistance temperature detector) or thermocouple, burned into some part of the printed circuit board, but only in specific locations. Locations like your RAM, or in other parts of your hard drives, or maybe even the specific temperature of your North or Southbridge may not be monitored. To satisfy this "need to know" that most of us overclockers have, NZXT has introduced the Sentry. The Sentry has a temperature and fan controller that allows the user to see component temperatures, combined with the ability to change the fan speeds at will.
NZXT is primarily a computer case manufacturer that has been built on the philosophy of staying true to the gamer’s dreams. Established in 2004, this Taiwanese company has not had a long time in the marketplace, but has earned a respectable position based on the popularity of the products it has produced.
The Sentry is packaged in a very small box and is very light-weight. The packaging is intriguing, with a cool blue image of the Sentry fading into the black background. The features are also printed on the side of the box.
The Sentry is well protected in bubble wrap and didn’t appear to be damaged.
The contents of the box are the temperature controller, a bag of components and the installation manual.
