Default Should i get Seperate Fan Contollers


I'm just getting propared to OC my 1st system
Athlon +64 3200
Leadtek 7600Gt 256mb AGP
2 GB Memory
580w HiperPower HPU-4M580
K8N - Mboard

I've purchased a Artic Alpine 64 for the CPU, A ZALMAN VGA Cooler VF900-Cu to replace the stock VGA fan and also some Zalman heatsinks for the memory on the VGA card.
I've got 2 exhaust fans at the back of the tower (exclkuding the PSU) and 2 80mm intake fans at the front of the tower.

My Question is can i connest the Ehaust & Intake fans to the Mboard and let it do all the Temp Monitering and Fan Speeds, or should i purchase a Fan Controler, i.e

Your motherboard can control fan speeds but fan controllers are much easier to monitor imo.

I use manual fan controllers. I find them easier to use.
