How many fans do you have? That can dictate the kind of controller your looking to get.

Newegg.com - VANTEC NXP-301 Controller, Panel - Retail
That one is the one i have because it came with 2 cold cathodes and they are sound reactive. Another reason I bought that one is because you can turn the fans all the way from 0-100%, some can only go from 20 or 30 -100%.

What about this?
::: Zalman ::: ZM-MFC2
Supposedly the second version of the first one posted. Looks pretty cool. Price probably ain't cool though.

Wow that Zelman looks really nice! I'd even go and replace mine since it sucks anyway.

Don't get a GateWatch.
