Default Fan Controllers


I have a xoxide cube case being shipped to me that has mounts for 11 fans (4x80mm/7x120mm). This does not count the cpu fan. Even thought this is excessive, I intend to use every single one. The problem is I'm not sure if my power supply will have enough power connectors to accomodate and power all of the fans even if I use splitters. I am unfamiliar with fan controllers so I was hoping someone could advise me. Would using a fan controller(s) allow me to connect (power) my fans through the unit, saving the amount of PSU molex/connections by using only the main pwr connection for the fan controller? Will the fans still have to be connected individually to the PSU. Below is my planned set up.

*xoxide UFO cube case.
lga 775 3.6 pentium 4
1x dvd/rw
1x cd/rw
1x 3.5 floppy
2x 250 sata hdd/with hdd coolers(2 fan connections)
4x80 mm thermaltake blue led smart fans
7x120 mm thermaltake blue led smart fans
*Swifttech heatsink w/ 80 mm thermaltake blue led smart fan
*2x thermaltake Hardcano 12 (if recommended)
*Themaltake purepower 560 or Ultra x-connect modular PSU
nividia geforce 5900
soundblaster Audigy2 card

* - items I don't have yet.
