El Monte, CA – June 30, 2010 – 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.
Wednesday NZXT said that its Sentry LXE external high performance fan controller will hit the market “soon.” The kit will come packed with a “patent-pending” PCI card, a touch screen LCD, and the necessary cabling.

This touchscreen fan controller connects to one’s desktop via PCIe, and from there provides finger control of up to five internal fans.
