Default Fan controller

This is probably a question that will be answered for me very quickly but...
I really need a fan controller for my fans on my radiator. They are very loud and they don't always need to be on full. I have no idea about fan controllers so I thought somebody here might. I have 3x120mm fans.

Thanks

Well it can't be software because the fans are plugged directly into my psu because I ran out of 4-pin molex connections.

then hardware based either put a fan controller somewhere in the chain and turn them all down at the same time or connect them seperately or just go with the easy option and use an automated solution to do all the hard work for you

well any bay versions are all basically the same with a knob that you turn just use google to check for any reviews and match the style of your case.

here's a good automatic solution:
Kustom PCs mCubed T Balancer BigNG
its not for molex connectors I believe you can buy converters though
