if you don't want a ribbon cable, go with SATA hard drives

all IDE HDD's use ribbons

I have this fan controler, works great. It has high volt channels. Which is ideal for top-end fans. You can control 4 fans total, along with lights.

The vantec tornado is your best choice, i own one myself. Compared to the rest of my cooling, the tornado is not very loud. The only reason people say its loud, is you just dont expect this kind of sound coming from a fan.
