Default Fan Controller for Delta Fan

I'm thinking of purcjhasing one of these 120mm high efficency Delta fans:

http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/delffb1212eh.html

However I have read that they are very loud, so I want to be able to control the speed of the fan. there are many fan controllers on the market and I'm not sure which is for me. any fan Controller I get must fulfil certian requirements before I purchase it:

1. Must NOT have any excessively large knobs on the outside. ( i have a TermalTake Tsunami Dream and the door wont close if any thing bulges out too much.)

2. Must be able to control a 120mm fan with large power requirments.

3. Must be black )like my case).

4. Preferably be able to read out temps of diffrent components

5. Must be economical (I am poor[spent all my money on computer/bike parts]).

look on www.newegg.com and www.frozencpu.com. You should find something there that can suit your needs.

from what i understand you want the fan to be silent , so why on earth would you bother getting a very loud fan+a seperate fan controller? it makes no sense , the ideal solution will be getting a silent 120mm fan with 30dba or less , if you really gotta have speed adjustment then get a thermaltake smartfan or a silverstone white fan (both come with speed controller)

I dont need it to be silent. Just want the ability to control how loud it is.

I have a thermaltake tsunami case and the 120mm fan holders probably wont fit a 38mm deep fan. What do I do?

i think they sell some type of adapter, but you'll have to look for one because i'm not sure where you'd get it.
