Default fan controller

I need a fan speed controller that can turn my fans from on 100% to off or almost off. I have 4 80mm fans and 1 120mm fan so I have 5 fans that will be connected to it. And the fans have 4 pin molex connectors. Also I would like to buy it off newegg.

I would get this one but it only has 4 controllers (you can connect 2 to the same channel though)

The first one - the zalman has 6 channels so that one would be good for you.

I just orderd the Thermaltake HardCano 9 which has 4 fan control knobs, i'll let you know how it works once you get it, if you wish

the hardcano also shows you the RPM the fan is working at the current moment, and the temps of you'r GPU/CPU/HDD/Socket/chipset or something like that, i'll know better when I actualy have it.. ^^.

Cool, just remember there is no temp readings or rpm speed readings on this one, it has no sensors whatsoever and no lcd screen to display that kind of info (which all thermaltakes has)
