I'm buying the CM storm scout and figured I might as well buy a little fan controller with it, I saw the nzxt sentry 2 with the touch screen and thought that would be great! Then I saw many threads online stating incompatibility between the case and this controller, things saying like you have to pick between LED lights or fan control, but some also said the LED power button wouldn't work but the lights would still be on. Please clarify if any of you can! If I buy this controller will the lights not work period? Or will the LED light power button just not work (in this case I don't care and will buy anyways because I don't plan to turn the lights off..)? Also, please suggest any other fan controller, preferrably under $30, if you just think this controller is crap and I shouldn't buy it regardless.

I own the storm scout myself and have been strongly considering buying a sentry 2 controller also. I think the led's are wired differently (to the button on the front panel) that is why you can only choose between led's and fan speed.

how about the nzxt sentry mesh fan controller? ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ) do you now if this will still work and allow the lights to be on?

The lights will always be on because they are controlled by the button in the front of the case. IMHO I would get the sentrey 2 over that one.

The lights can be turned on and off because of the switch on the front. It can't be adjust from the fan controller.
