Default Fans and Fan Controllers...

I have the Thermaltake Xaser III and the fans that shipped with it are pretty lame, and I am thinking about replacing the 7 80mm fans with these....

Antec LED80XFAN 80mm Blue LED Light Case Cooling Fan
Air Flow: 34CFM
Color: Transparent
Compatibility: Case
Fan Dimensions: 80 x 80 x 25.4 mm
Noise Level: 30dBA
Power Connector: 3 / 4 Pin
RPM: 2600RPM

Now the Xaser ships with a fan controller, but it seems to make the fans run rather weak. Should I replace it with a diff one? If so do you have any suggestions on which ones? And also is it possible to run 7 fans without a fan controller?

I am also running EVGA nVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT Video Card 256MB GDDR3 and it gets pretty hot under load. Are there alternate means of cooling the video cards as well?

you can use the Xaser fan controller. and they are supposed to make them weak, cause a point of a fan controller is to lower the fan noise. you can ran all 7 fans without a fan controller. you can make them all run on one 4pin molex connector too. you can buy a new 6800GT>fan
