I appreciate your response. However, from sources that I read is that there would not be any difference to set the fans to low or high as the final speed control is determined by the fan controller and thus the small switch is not in use.

Is that true?

Besides that from other users response elsewhere, they said they would not even try to adjust the case fans speed and they would just leave it to the default low settings when used with a fan controller.

Anyone can explain this to me and I would really appreciate it.

Each of the 4 fans have little thingys that have l/m/h on them, and in the manual (cant remember exactly) it says how much power each gets on each setting, h is like double l, thus it spins faster cooling your system more, and trust me you can hear the difference.

I have all mine on M, i dont think i need a controller
