That being said, should I do the BitFenix or the Aerocool models? I don't have any experience with either of these makers, so I need peoples input on this. Again, around 40-50CFM is plenty for my needs, I need them to be QUIET for my HAF XB case build project.

Take the AeroCool Shark on Fan Controller, the BitFenix Spectre make some tick noises @ low rpm ...

I put a strip of red led's on each lower side to go along with the white ones around the top. And I finally got my replacement fan control, so a channel of it is acting as a dimmer for the led's. Love this case, and i can't wait to see more from you guys, and where this style of case takes off to.

I don't have room for a fan controller in my 5.25'' bays and I don't want to use one. How bad are the bitfenix at low noise with this clicking? I've head alot of people like them, what about the pro series from them?

Also, do the aerocools LED"s dim if you use the silence low voltage adapter?

If you change your mind about a fan controller, look what I did with my brothers build (the photos are in this thread) as I didn't use any 5.25" bays to do so.

I couldn't even think about not using a fan control. Especially one that turns all the way off. I have been spoiled. What you did here is a great way to incorporate one where there isn't any room.
