Default case mod idea

alright, i was browsing xoxide looking for a cheap way to mod the case im getting. the explorer has a built in fan controller, and fans with double sided molex connectors, so i'm getting three 80mm fans. i also found a logisys led bar, blue to match the case, with the same connectors. if i plugged these in the same circuit as the fans (connected to the controller) would it be lighter/dimmer as it got more or less voltage? i'm assuming that's how the controller works, by decreasing or increasing voltage and i could run the bar from the powersupply, but i thought it would be cool to have it dim in silent mode, and get bright as teh fans ran more.
