so getting a fan contoller or two controllers is worth it or not. i gues a fan thats pushing 90 cfm doesnt need a controller. Anyone know if the zalman controller off newegg would work on the cm staker 830 with tooless install drive bays?

edit:

now this is what i would consider loud:

65 dBA - 220 cfm
My Antec TriCool fan at 35dBA (ish) is LOUD. It's like a vacuum cleaner.

In my opinion, anything above 25dbA is too loud for a fan, especially if it produces a high pitched whine.

You can also use acoustic insulation for your case if you're worried about noise.
