Excellent ProductFor years I was using a non-touchscreen version of the NZXT Sentry that was intended for drive-bay fitment, I mounted it into a box on my desk and made an extension cable back to my PC.
Now they have released their latest version in both drive-bay and this desktop-mounting version, brilliant.
For many computer users it's inconvenient to see the front of their PC, mine is side-on beside my desk, my other PC is under my desk, with this it doesn't matter, you can monitor your system wherever it is (depending on the length of the cable) and control your cooling form your desk.
If watercooling is your thing it uses common 10k thermistors with a common connector, you can buy any of a number of water temp probes, I have two inline types, and monitor your coolant temp and control your radiator-mounted fans accordingly, the probes plug rioght onto the controller board in place of the standard probes.
A highly recommended fan controller.

Second UnitThis is my second purchase of this item. The first one failed after 1 year.
It doesn't require a PCI socket.
The controller-board is intended to mount into a PCI cover-plate.
If you have none spare you could run the cable into the case by another route, an unused watercooling pipe hole perhaps, and secure the board somewhere in the case.
