If the fans have a standard three pin plug on them then I don't see why you couldn't use a fans controller with them.

It says it only has 3.1 W of power draw so you should be fine. I think most fan controllers can do about 20W per channel with some beefy ones able to do 60W. I think my Scythe Kaze Master Pro controller is rated at about 20W per channel.
